Hopefully you have not fried the motor. To free a stuck motor: try to reach past the strainer to the impeller and turn it. If you can't do that, remove the electric end cover and find a double flat for a wrench where the shaft goes into the motor. Or maybe you can remove the spring thing from the end of the motor and move the shaft with a pair of vise grips or pliers. Don't damage the place where the spring thing mounts. Don't try to move the motor with the plastic fan thing near the pump, you'll just break it, and then you really have problems.
To keep a motor from sticking, thru off season occasionaly spin the pump, just a few seconds will do, don't need water.

SOURCE: High speed spa pump shuts off
The motor may have a thermal cutoff if the motor draws too much current. Do you have a sufficient large gauge circuit supplying the motore? If not the actual voltage at the motor may drop, causing it to draw more current to make up for the loss of voltage, thereby tripping the motor's protective breaker. I assume the motor will start again after serveral minutes of cooling down.

The motor may be repairable. Check with local electric motor repair shops in your area. The motor may need to be replaced though and if so, we sell it at www.arrowmotor.net

The motor-start capacitor is bad. This is a very common problem. It can be easily and cheaply fixed by replacing the capacitor. Replacements are usually less than $10.
See http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZEIv5ClLqXg for a step=by=step guide.
When you have the capacitor in hand, check the model# which is printed on it. Alternatively, you can Google the motor brand & model to find the parts list which will identify the right one. Then Google the part number, to find a seller.

check to see that the flow switch is working properly, it may not have enough flow on low speed to allow the heater to turn on. Make sure your filter/s is/are clean. If you have a pressure switch instead of a flow switch, it may need to be adjusted or replaced.
