Do you know how to check continuity with your meter? Check the motor to see if any of the legs are shorted together (e.g. for a 3-prong 110V plug check round prong to longest flat prong then round to shortest and flat to flat). If there is a short in the motor it is sometimes possible to find it this way. If something is shorted it will draw a lot of current and trip the breaker.
