Did you buy it new or 2nd hand off ebay.?
I would contact the seller and return it, you shouldn't have to take it apart, unless it was specified on sales description it was faulty.
If it was specified, contact shimano felindre reel spares.

If you had bought it from a tackle shop, they would send it back for repair/service to Shimano, another reason why I don’t buy online.

Glad you sorted the problem. I have two of these in the 5000b GTE series which I’ve used for both Barbel and Carp without any problems for quite a few years now, but if I do get the same thing happen on one of them I now know where to look.
