I have a water distiller which the electric fan suddenly just stopped working (thankfully I was near by to shutdown everything, otherwise ...). Prior to the failure everything was working fine, there was no warnings. And just after the failure there was a burning smell.
I've removed the electric motor to do some testing:
- It is not jammed or stuck since I can spin it fine with my fingers.
- There is no visual damage in it.
- It doesn't work even if connected directly into the power outlet.
There is a teardown video of a similar model that might be useful for the discussion.
I've tried to find some DIY repair for this kind of electric motor but could not find.
Is it possible to fix it? How?
