Sound like the motor. Likely the bearing or bushings are frozen from corrosion. They generally as considere "non-repairable," however, I have, in the past, had some success using WD-40 and hand twisting to fee-up the shaft/beaing/bushings, and then using sone motorcycle chain lube, or similar penetrating=then=thickening lubricant.

Good luck, but if it was hot to the touch, it doesn't sound like a relay.
