X-controller Blinking Green Light. Dead Motor or Dead Controller?

Definitely not happy. I just did the firmware update last night and on the first cut we went to do I was just shaving epoxy off some coaster were making. I was literally going 40ipm with .018 per pass.

All the sudden the machine stops and the green light on the x-controller starts making this chugging sound where it was blinking off and on.

I stopped things immediately.

Did not see any damage at first. Then noticed some very almost not visible damage to what I think is the second from the left chip on the controller board.

Am I looking at an issue with a motor or isthis directly the x-controller itself?

I’ve had bad issues with the controller so much so this unit was sent to us complete from inventables. i noticed the small fan did not power up at all and all sorts of debris were inside.

Just curious if I replace the motor if its bad will it correct itself or am I again looking at a dead x-controller? This would be our THIRD x-controller to shit the bead and I’m now at a point I’m losing all confidence in Inventables with this product.
