Just buy a new one. It's important enough - and they're cheap enough - to not worry about trying to fix.

I discovered my shower sump pump was froze up just last week. Motor ran, twirley thingy didn't twirl. I stuck a screw driver in there and turned the twirly impellor manually to break it free. Now it works again. I think if I run it at least once a month I can put off replacing it. For something like a bilge pump though, might sleep better at night if you follow Jason's advice.
