Girard Nova awning problem

My front Nova awning died on on our 2016 MA. Pressed the button to extend and the motor started for about 1 second, then nothing. Checked the controller and it is dead, no red led light. Power is getting to the controller, as the rear awning controller is plugged into the same basement outlet and it is good.

Called Girard and they are sending a new controller, but I'm hestitant to install the new controller for fear a shorted motor may blow the new controller.

Anyone know how to test the motor to see if I have a bad motor, or just a bad controller?
