What caused my electric motor to fail?

One of the most common causes of a failure is low resistance. This is caused by degeneration of the insulation of the windings due to conditions such as overheating, corrosion, or physical damage.

Other reasons could include lubrication of the bearings, overload, misalignment, and many more potential causes.
