These run very small motors with low "starting torque" If the fan hasn't been run for a long time, its possible that it has jammed up or got tight from just sitting there. Being careful, turn on the fan and spin it in its usual direction by hand, it should start running. If you cannot spin by hand, it may have seized up which will require you to strip and lube the motor. If you manage to get the fan spinning , let it run on high fan speed for an hour or so, it should free up and then be OK again. A small spray of WD40, CRC or similar spray can lube on the fan shaft where it disappears into the motor may assist.
The motor has a fuse buried in the windings near where the wires connect to the motor. Sometimes, if you're careful, you can expose the wires and jump around the fuse. Otherwise a new motor in in order.
like many electrical items there made for the right fuse or breaker to be ran off of the main box so there is a high odds your fan had to many amps going through it and very good that you blew the motor,you would have to replace the motor if you want it to run again.
Throw it away. I have come to conclude that Bionaire is a junk brand that does not service their products. I have a bionaire model BCM646 humidifier purchased at COSCO and the water tank broke. NO! I did not drop it, it just sat in the corner. I have not even used all the factory filters that came with it. Who would have thought a made in China product (for American idiots) would break and not have replacement parts? Such a shock considering their fine reputation.
