I repaired an external amiga drive once by replacing 2 electrolytic caps that had leaked, the caps were inside the drive itself, very small caps. It's not always immediately obvious in the way of physical appearance if caps have leaked, one way to test (a crude way) is to touch the leg of the cap with a soldering iron. If you smell cat pee/rotten fish (you're smelling the leaked electrolyte burning), change it.
