It was probably gummed up with old cooking grease.. If the ambient temprature was warm enough, it might start, if not, hummmmm..

I had a similar problem with the ceiling fan in the kitchen at the house we rent, It was full of grease.. I took the whole thing apart, and degunked it, oiled it, and reinstalled.. works much better now..

Had to do a similar feat with the range hood (self contained, vents to room, not to exterior.), including a complete stripping of all paint, and repainting.. it was caked with years worth of cooking grease..

Such PUNishment I receive! :-)

I expect that the motor was of the shaded pole type, with some breakdown in the shading coil, so that there wasn't very much torque to get things moving the right way. There certainly was no centrifugal switch!

IME, most SP motors fail because the bushings get worn, not becasue of electrical failure.

Majority of Shaded Pole motors I've seen fail has been because of rubbish stuck in the bearings/or the armature/Yoke part.
These motors don't have a lot of torque, especially while starting.
IMO, rip it out and put a Man's motor in there!.

We have one of these at a camp with a outside serface level output without cover we leave it on to keep out the rodents and if they come we repaint the bathroom
