    Greetings to all, we recently received this Seth Thomas Mantel Clock as a house warming gift because the lady who gave it to us knows that I work on and fix clocks. Unfortunately, I have not tried my hand at electric clocks and this one is not currently running. I checked the cord and it is toast, the chimes did ring but the movement has no power. Can anyone tell me if there are replacement electric motors for these. I'd like to bring it back to life if possible.

    Thanks Again for all the input shared

    You might get a better response if this was posted in the Electric Horology section. Perhaps a moderator will move it for you.

    This looks like a Seth Thomas Medbury 1e movement. The motor was generally repairable, it is a heavy Sangamo motor. It depends if the wires to the motor are still good and the coil is still good. Replacement motors are not available, except buying used on Ebay. Generally the motor is the least of ones problems in getting the clock to work. Wear on the pivots and bushings is generally the problem.
