Tunze 6105 trouble

I purchased a new Tunze 6105.
Right out of the box I can't seem to get this thing to run. I plug it in and the lights on the controller turn on, but the propeller doesn't start up.
Am I missing something, am I losing my mind? Or did I get a dud?

Saga continues....
Recieved new prop very quickly, but had the same issue.
Took the pump out to examine and it appears something has burned through the back from within.
Will update when I hear back.....

That is highly unusual, it looks like an exposed copper coil. I will not put this thing in a reef tank. The motor is faulty, a propeller is a dummy device that I never see a faulty one.
