    This is my 1st electric clock. A friend ask me to look at it. I know very little about electrics. Coincidently I heard a short lecture this past weekend about electric clocks and became very interested. My problem:

    I have a Seth Thomas time only clock with a number stamped on its back side along the outer perimeter, "41-7" and it has a sangamo motor held onto the movement with 3 machine screws. There is a large number on the motor in ink, "425." It is 115v 50-60 cycles motor.

    Where can I get a replacement motor? Any help or information on the clock is greatly appreciated. Thank you. Sincerely, John #0159010

    Region Flag:
    The Sangamo motor used on many of the older Seth Thomas AC electric clocks is available as salvage from donor clocks. Generally, the motor itself is either in servicable condition or needing only a new bushing and cleaning although this motor is not noted for being powerful, it is sufficient if the clockworks are in fair condition.

    The exception is of course if the connecting wires are broken off.

    Is this the motor you seek?
