Yes, there is a little bridge rectifier in the white round turntable switch so the motor is receiving DC power, but if I give it DC directly, it doesn't turn. No sign of a burn-out. All connectors are fine.
I've taken the motor itself right out, removed capacitors to see if they were causing the problem.
The motor seems weak and feeble. It only runs if I give it a good spin by hand to start it off. I ran it in some deionised water for a few minutes and the brushes seem fine. It just seems weak and stops at the slightest pressure. Seems as hough the magnets have lost all their force. A mini screwdriver hardly is attracted to the case.
So if anybody can point me in the direction of a replacement motor, I'd appreciate it.
