If you have an amprobe, take a reading on the fan motor and check it against the FLA of the motor. If it's high you have a bearing problem and will need to replace the motor soon. It could be as HS suggets bugs etc but the fact that you smelled "burnt motor" sounds like it had something to do with the fan motor, not a burning mouse - they smell different. This could also have been something jamming the motor. Check in the motor location to see if anything is loose that might have jammed the motor.
