Question about Zoeller M53 Mighty Mate Iron Body, Poly Base Automatic Sump Pump 1/3 HP
Zoeller pumps are pretty indestructable. Typically, the only thing that goes on them is the switch, which is $20 and easily replaced. The other thing I finally learned after many long battles with these is that IT IS IMPERATIVE THAT YOU KEEP THE SMALL BLEEDER HOLE BY THE BASE CLEAR (also usually another one by the check valve). If you don't, the pump won't work nearly as well, and may not pump at all.

Sorry to say, but it does sound like the pump is fried. It should come on(run) when it's plugged in. The fact that the water surrounding the pump was hot is a good sign that the pump was way over-heated. Also, that oil in the water is likely from the pump. Oil is used in the pump for lubrication and to water proof the inside of the pump.
The only thing I can recommend is to see if the bottom of the pump has a removable strainer or plate, and if so, see if debris has gotten inside and bound up the impeller.
