What to do if an electrician is charging for an estimate?

I called an electrician to fix my vacuum cleaner. He came to my house and told me the motor was broken. He then told me it would cost $400 to fix. He then left. He was in my house for 5 minutes. He mailed me a bill the next week for $60 for the estimate. He never told me that there was a fee for estimates. I didn’t agree to anything nor did I sign anything. He said he will send my bill to a collection agency if I don’t pay.
