Tim,

"Can possibly a very stiff throttle cause the actuator to pull enough current to fry these things?"

YES!!!

You can actually measure current draw to the actuator. Normal current draw will be between 120-180mA @ 13.8VDC.

Test the actuator spinning in both directions when measuring.
Operation should be smooth, not loud, not rattle, nor have current spikes while running.
