Hello sixliter.  Welcome to the Community!

The most likely culprit will be a bad capacitor.  The motor spins easily by hand so the bearings are not it.  The motor windings are not shorted or open since you get a hum when power is applied.  It is also possible that the remote control receiver up in the fan canopy has gone bad.

What I would do is gather the UPC code information from the top of the motor housing and call the Hampton Bay support team.
