How to unplug it and test for yourself.
The motor is located in the battery bay under the swing arm. Undo the two aft screws (not the middle ones) and flip open the compartment door. Secure the battery through the left small opening with a small screwdriver.
Find the only connector plug in there and unplug it. The cable is quite short from one side and the plug wont come out for you to work on it. I grabbed the male connector with a pair of pointed pliers and used a small electrical screwdriver in the side slid to open the catch and push them apart. Not very easy if you are inverted on your back, have a flash light on your mouth, and wear reading glasses!!
I tried to put some electrical tape for insulation but soon gave up. Tie rap the plugs so they won't rattle around.
