The plastic housing around the motor is all melted and distorted. And at which point the fan blades scoured the shroud pretty badly. This wemo is toast and the stench and smoke was probably the motor windings. Anyone have ideas?
A magnet let go inside the motor shorting out the esc.

Seen it happen.. Experienced it happen..Hope it never happens again
