Specifically the four wires that plug into the speed controller, which have gotten "crunchy" burnt on both of my 9000s. Once the wiring is exposed, you can also test the motor by temporarily jumping the two motor wires to the battery. Note that various vendors including Eeuroparts sell replacement connectors and plugs to splice into this part of the wiring - obviously a known weak point.
Are you sure that the speed controller is OK?
Worse comes to worse, I may have a working used motor from when I replaced the heater core and replaced the motor preemptively - but it might take some work to find it.
