    If motor is not doing anything at all, then you fried it, if it still does some sort sounds, twists and you may revive it lol, otherwise its done, go buy brushless system and never have those problems

    Your problem is that the motor has been fried due to excessive strain on the motor. Consider this a opportunity to go brushless. :-◘
