Power Gear Slide problem

Our 2000 American Tradition wardrobe slide won’t go in. Suspecting the motor as we smelled a plastic burning odor and traced it to the plastic cover on the motor. 30 amp fuse was tripped. Replaced fuse and all I get is a short buzz noise when in button is pressed, and trips fuse every time now. Living/ kitchen slide works with no problem. Even changed out control switches from living slide. Batteries are charged with plenty of power. Any other ideas before I order a motor? Best place to order a replacement?

I would make sure that the electromagnet brake is fully released before ordering a motor.
Many times it's the brake that's locked up and not the motor itself.
The brake can be ordered from Fleetwood (REV) for about $60.
To release the brake, there is a lever under the boot on the end...you lift slightly and turn.
The brake can actually be removed from the motor too by 2 philips screws.
