Okay so hasnâ€™t blown up recently, itâ€™s probably been out of order for decades. I recently purchased a Telechron 1H1412 but unfortunately, it's not working. When I opened it to see what might be the problem I noticed a lot of soot. Many people talk about replacing the motor in these clocks but it looks to me like the coil might be the problem since that is where the soot appears to have come from. I found what appears to be a reputable supplier for the motor (H-3) but where should I get a coil from? And then there's the question of, is it the coil, the motor, or both? I would hate to buy a new motor only to find a need a coil. I would really appreciate any suggestions you could offer.
