Chances are, the motor is shorted somewhere within the coils so replacing a thermal fuse may not even help. It popped for a reason. These aren't meant to last long at all.

What you can do is bridge where the thermal fuse is to bypass it and then check for continuity, but I highly DO NOT RECOMMEND running these motors without a thermal fuse. I've seen them burn homes down.
