Today I drilled out the last mounting screw that held my motor in the melted wemo fan. I was now able to take a closer look at the motor and found the windings when viewed from the front are actually black and crispy looking. Not like the rear view that shows shiny copper windings.

I suspect something caused the motor to overheat damaging the plastic shroud and motor alignment. Then the fan gouged a ditch into the shroud and then the esc shutdown. The Rotor is seized and will not budge. It appears something within the motor failed but what? I bought these motors from edfhobbies and I think this motor was one of their house brands. Perhaps a warranty can be honored if one of the bearings failed.
