I have the original and it's shot with a burnt wire that was rubbed through by a connector, so it can't be salvaged.
Does anyone have any alternatives beyond the Fasco motor?
Cheap DC motors are found most any where.
But, will the one you pick, last 34 years as the original one did? Very doubtful.
The cost many times for various parts, also reflect the quality. The better the quality, the higher the price.
The only problem with used DC motors, is that their end of life, might be around the corner.
