Locker pump repair

I had locker pumps that would not turn on, and in one case, sounded like it wanted to go, but never did, kind of gave a weak click one time.

After seeing and reading another post on how to get into the bottom of the pump (you basically pry the edges a bit on three sides and it will pop off) I decided to open up the pump and take a look at that circuit board.

It became very clear very quickly that one of the circuits failed, you can see it in one of the pics, looks like copper foil broken. Anyway, I took some 18g wire and did a quick jumper between the two points on the board and it worked beautifully. I repaired both of my locker pumps this way.

Nice "fix". My concern is what caused the circuit board trace to do that in the first place? Overcurrent? Doesn't matter I suppose, the jumper will work until something else fails.
