Electric motor burnout

I suspect the motor on my sunroof may have burned out. When I attempt to close the sunroof with BMW's special tool, no amount of force will turn it in either direction. I have removed the motor and examined it and nothing appears jammed anywhere. The same with the sunroof I have removed that and checked for blockages or the usual sunroof problems. Due to the fact that I am unable to open and close the sunroof manually I suspect the motor itself may have seized. To reiterate if the motor has burnt out will it seize up?

All help appreciated
