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


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.
