DO YOU HAVE ANY IDEAS WHAT IT COULD BE?
Right when you put the carbon brushes in did you release them if not then these 1s could now been knackered take them out now on 1 side there is a little slit down the side there is a little metal bar this needs lifting so the carbon brushes flow in and out easily by pushing on the end of them it should spring back out straight away with ease if you havent done this do it replace them and see if its ok if not they might need replacing again but this time press the metal pin out first before putting them in and you must clean the motor by either blowing onto the motor or use a vacuum to get all the carbon dust out because you can blow a motor if not done also what i do after replacing new carbs is i put all washers on a quick wash with nothing in them to bed the carbons in m8

I think you fixed the initial problem which was the door switch. Now you need to go back to the motor brushes and check if you put them back the right way and if the wiring is not shorting somewhere.
