I have a fan that use for drying out floors and circulate air. I plugged it in started to hum, but the motor doesn't turn. It was exposed to a lot of sheet rock dust don't know if that was the cause?

Is there any way to repair something like this?

Thanks for all the help! The fan turns manually when I push it seem smooth to me.
It is not stuck anywhere the switch is good, or I would have nothing. The trouble shoot list said capacitor. So I tested it following online instructions. However, I don't know too much about it. Could you tell me if the test conducted looks correct? I will post pics.

So it looks like I tested it correctly, thanks! One thing I put a screwdriver across the terminals. Thought I would get a spark but nothing happened. I THOUGHT THAT WAS WEIRD. I spin the motor by hand feels smooth to me.
