    Hello. I have an advertising clock from the fifties and the motor has died. There’s no makers mark on the clock and nothing on the motor either. On the back cover of the motor it says Model W, 60 cycle, 110 V, 2.5 watt, and then patent numbers. I believe , from the patent numbers, it’s a Hansen motor. I’d like to replace it, so if anyone can help out with which motor I need to search for, I’d appreciate it.
    Thanks, Judi

    You'll need to remove the back cover and post some images of the actual motor with all the markings. Fortunately Hansen is still in business so I doubt you'll have a problem sourcing the motor.
    Synchron® and PM AC Synchronous Motors | Hansen Motors

    Most of the more common Hansen clock motors can also be sourced here:

    Hi, thanks for the reply and info. I took a few pics of the motor and I just don’t see any markings at all. Hope the pictures can shed some light on what motor I need. Thanks in advance.

    That looks like a Sessions motor with worm drive. (not Hansen) It might be tough to find and I don't know of any source. I'd measure for electrical continuity. If the electrical is OK, then you could try a drop of penetrating oil where the shaft enters motor body's bushing to see if that helps free it up. Good luck.

    Hi Dave. Just wanted to let you know that the oil seems to have helped. It’s quietly running, at least for now. Wanted to thank you again. I’ll have to check out telechronclock.com. I have 20 telechron clocks and all but a couple run, although I don’t have them all going as they aren’t restored and most have original cords and plugs. thanks again
