Antique Clocks/Westminster Clock Motor??
I just got an old clock from my grandparents. and the motor was weak, and now dead. I am looking for a replacement motor but don't know what to look for (the motor only has patent numbers on it.
The clock says its
NO. 212 DW
Self Starting Electric Westminster Chime
From my understanding it needs a 60 cycle synchonous motor with a 10 pin gear.
the burnt out motor is brass on one side with 2 leads that come out of the top.
Do you know where i can get a replacement or how to fix this one?
I was having trouble emailing you. so i re asked the question. Here is the link to my skydrive with pictures of clock
Motors and repair parts for electric clocks are obsolete today.
There are specialists that rebuild old motors.
A proper and lasting repair is to overhaul the clock movement as well as the motor. Even with a new motor the power will be insufficient to run a clock with worn pivots and bearings.
