Maybe it burned out the switch or some other part of the control wiring. I'd think that if the motor will still run in one direction, it should work in the other too. You may have to disconnect the wires coming directly out of the pump, then apply power to each lead to see if the motor runs both ways. If not you're probably looking at motor replacement or at least a teardown/inspection.

There are rebuild places that can recondition these motors, too, or check eBay/local marine recyclers for use.

Check for good prices on Sierra replacements.
