V5 Motor not functioning

I have a V5 Motor that no longer functions correctly, and I would like to restore it if at all possible.
The problems with this motor are that when it is connected to a V5 brain and the V5 brain is turned on it makes a distinct buzzing noise, the internal LED in the motor does not turn on, and The motor is not detected by the brain. The buzzing started before the motor stopped working, and when the motor stopped working it was mounted high up on my robot powering a 600rpm rubber band flywheel. This should not have caused static nor significant stress. any tips on fixing the motor or understanding why it broke would be appreciated.

The motor is dead. Call VEX tomorrow and see if they will replace it.


I was hoping that wouldn’t be the case but oh well.
