Agree thats what fues are for! Wondering if motor was failing anyway and thats why the switch failed (welded contacts?) If it were me, just overcautious, downgrade the fues one level 20-15 or whatever it is. Maybe save the nest motor or switch. Don't even have to bother whats there, add it in series with a easy location to reach and change if necessary. So far mine is fine, lots of problems with awnings on this forum so I treat it very gingerly. Wind, rain, and operation.
