Is it the motor that you killed, or the needle? Did you use a heavy-gauge needle like a 16? (I don't know much about sewing -- I'm just pretending that I do.)

I did use a heavier needle, and heavier thread. I think it may have been the thread that was too much for it. Towards the end, the needle kept getting stuck inside the fabric, and when I was able to cut it loose, I found that there were somehow lots of bits of thread stuck underneath the plate that I had to get out. I'm hoping I got them all, but still haven't tested it.
