Not a good sign! Specially if was a "puff" while under load. But the good thing is that parts are available and if your motor is burnt .... any good electic motor shop can repair it. Or you can buy a new one from a Warn dealer. If you do have a mod 8274 it's worth the effort to rebuild/repair/service.
As for the 'freespool-engage' lever, not unusual for things to bind up but should come free with a little manipulation. Disassemble, clean & lube should do the trick but things do break or get out of adjustment, so you'll have to open it up and see.
