Hi.
Recently fitted a new capacitor on a old riello burner with a manual fan. It sounded brand-new and lasted for a few months working good.
The other day just stopped working when turned on it's a faint buzz then off? Would this be the motor seized? It is a 20 year old burner. Thanks
 
Fan easy to spin by hand most often not when warm the bearings tend to lock up or a bad oil pump if direct drive etc
 
It's a shutter fan... If it doesn't spin would you say it's the motor?

Shutter fan you mean the fan blades

Looks like this correct ?

It’s just a direct drive motor and yes
