Default DW625 burnt out?

It's my favorite router and I think I might have fried it. It's in a table with a fence. i adjusted the fence too close
to the cutter and when I started it, it of course did not turn (motor was trying). I couldn't get to the switch fast enough to shut it. Now it won't start. Is there a breaker in this router that I can reset, or is the motor fried? HELP

No fuses inside. When a motor can`t turn or is working too hard it experiences a current rise through the windings. Usually you have a couple of seconds before this gets critical in a full stall but the high current load is too much heat for either the wire size or the shellac insulation on the wire to withstand for long.

Someone I consider a master woodworker once told me that a master woodworker is not someone who never makes mistakes. He is someone who is able to cover them up so that no one can tell.

Another possibility in that situation is the controller board (soft-start, speed control).

With any luck it'll pop the breaker first. When ever I run into this no-go situation, I like to try it on a different plug on a different branch circuit, just to be sure it's not a house wiring failure.
I remember, several decades ago, when I worked for IBM, a common issue was two heavy draw pieces of equipment sharing the same phase in an office in a 3 ph. office tower. The simple solution was to plug one into a receptacle on a different phase. If the problems disappeared the issue was resolved.

Default The DW625 is NOT fried!

Had I done a little sleuthing I would have seen that the surge protector that it was plugged into did its job. It fried, not my router! Glad about that.
