Blower motor for mechanical sewer

I've been having a lot of problems lately I guess that's because of me not working on this house for so long. The last couple times I've been out cutting the yard I have not heard the aerator motor spin up and run. So I went in check the breaker to see that it was still on and not tripped. I went to the switch on the outside and make sure it was turned on but I have not been able to get a multimeter out there. I did move the unit a little bit and cleaned up real well around it and I spun the fan myself but it was very tight. I also opened up the cover over the container for lack of a better word and I saw that everything was still liquid in there. It drains out to the ditch. I'm not sure if I need to get someone to come empty that it's been a long time. Should I be able to work on this or is it done? How easy is it to replace the sewer company wants $2,000.

Only you know your capabilities.
Can't tell much from the picture on how difficult the job is.
It looks like you may need the blower assembly instead of just a motor.
