Mine was like this too. I disassembled the case and drive (the belt was bad, needed replacing) and after I put it back together it ejects normally now. The case is likely not set exactly flush with the drive, or something else is sticking it :9

Hi, I found my floppy drive is MFD-11W-51L and which is belt-less model, there is a force to push floppy disk upward after press the button, there is no force to push disk to eject, which part should I check ? Thanks.

Over time, the oil becomes old and resinous.
A simple and instructive way to repair will be to take the drive apart, clean the parts and relubricate.
You will get an insight into the wonderful mechanics necessary to eject the disc.

Wait, isn't the HB-F1XD beltless?
