Is the motor clamped down by the pulley end? Very common for that clamp to come off. IF that is fine and you can turn the drum easily then the motor is bad. If drum is hard to turn then look in the blower for a clothing item. No involved testing is needed here as the motor is getting power, so it would be running IF all else that I mentioned were fine.

So, what else is needed here?
