For motors and rotors not found on this Web page, I would need you to send a digital picture of the item using both top and bottom views.   Please remember that each motor or rotor in the body of this Web page have clickable links to their individual picture.

Any rebuilt Telechron "B" rotor can have any shaft you'd need.  Once I open up a "B" rotor I can install any configuration of shaft or pinion.

Here is a Web page with some of the steps illustrated with pictures.   Repair Illustration

Index of Motor and Rotor & Resources by Category:

Virtually every motor and rotor is no longer in production and because of the rarity of these items, all prices are firm and there is no trade discount of any kind.

I don't list or sell any 50 cycle rotors.

All motors, rotors, and coils carry a 2-year warranty.   If failure occurs during the warranty period the item will be replaced for free but you would be responsible for the shipping costs to Mike's Clock Clinic.

If, for any reason, I cannot rebuild your motor/rotor or I cannot salvage an exact substitute, then I'll return your motor/rotor at no charge what-so-ever, unless it was expedited service.

My turnaround is 2 to 3 months and expedited service adds $100.00 and if you choose expedite and I cannot return a working motor then the $100.00 is still due.  If after the normal waiting period the motor still is not satisfactory then it is returned at no charge.  Expedited service takes about 3 weeks.

Most rebuilt (overhauled) original motors and rotors sell for between $110.00 and $160.00.   The same holds true for a N.O.S. (New Old Stock) which means an old but unused rotor/motor and for used but working.

If you want to send in the clock for motor or rotor replacement, please be advised that shipping will jump from $10.00 to $80.00 with everything else staying the same.   The increase covers return shipping and insurance and includes my labor charge of $50.00 for the replacement.  Labor adds $50.00 and return shipping adds $30.00, and I can ship at that price for clocks up to 22" long.

I cannot guarantee that the motor/rotor replacement will fix you clock's problem 100% of the time, simply because the clock movement (mechanism) may need work as well.

Motors are complete units with wires to be connected to an electrical power source.  Rotors are units that require another part, usually a coil, in order to generate the electro magnetic field which all electric "drives" need.  Another way to look at it is that motors can be separately run outside the movement and rotors cannot.

All rebuilt's from whatever source, will have some noise.  Rebuilt's will be significantly quieter but all will carry some noise.

Drilling holes was often done by the amateur in order to extend the life of the rotor.  These holes were used in order to add oil to the rotor and at one time oil may have helped but that does nothing for accumulated dirt and old coagulated oil and nothing for plate and wheel wear.

I use synthetic grease and synthetic oil so in theory there should never be a need for more oil.

Original coils run $110.00 and this includes shipping.  I no longer have a source for newly manufactured coils, so when my stock is gone it is gone.

Many past repair people just grabbed any coil that they could get there hands on and for longer life of the clock and rotor, you should seriously consider replacing the coil if yours is not the proper wattage.

Please see this link for coil information.   Coil Information

You MUST add $10.00 to each order (Canada is $20.00) to include return shipping by U.S. Priority Mail.

Some have indicated to me a fear of the clock shorting out or becoming a fire hazard.  If that's the case then purchase a power strip and only plug the clock into it.  This way you have a fuse to stop an overload before it feeds back into your household or office wiring.  Honestly, I have never heard of an electric clock causing a fire but putting in a power strip may ease some fears.

Listing of all Telechron's by their M # on the Rotor

Please view this Web page for a M # listing on all Telechron rotors:

With the M #, I'll be able to identify the exact rotor and give you a more precise turn around time but I'm usually about 2 to 3 months.

Telechron Rotors

All my Telechron rotors are either nickel or copper and NOT aluminum.  The exception is the "S" rotor which has always been aluminum.  The aluminum rotors were cheapened versions of the nickel or copper rotors.  GE, who always had a stake in Telechron, finally purchased it outright in the 70's and that's when the aluminum rotors appeared.

Rebuilt Telechron Aluminum Rotors

The aluminum "B" rotor can be rebuilt.   The process takes about 2 to 3 months and the cost on either is $150.00 plus $10.00 priority mail (Canada is $20.00), which brings your total cost to $160.00.  Typically aluminum rotors have a M # of 3300 or higher.  If you do not have a rotor to send, then add $50.00 for a total of $210.00.

The "H" rotor is far too fragile for rebuilding and I substitute a copper and nickel "H" rotor for an additional cost of $50.00 ($150.00 total).

The one disadvantage of an aluminum cased rotor is that Telechron used fiber board plates and then coated them (dipped) in phenolic resin whereas the pre-aluminum rotors used copper plates.  Three of the seven wheels, in the "B" rotor, are also phenolic resin and that material was used to reduce noise of the wheels meshing but actually the plates used increased the overall noise of the rotor.  Phenolic plates will never last as long as copper and the material was used to reduce overall production costs but should last for years.  It is because of these plates that the noise level of any rebuilt aluminum rotor will be greater than the copper plates of original rotors.   So I strongly suggest you do NOT use an aluminum rotor for clocks located in your sleeping area.

For an extra $50.00, I can replace your aluminum cased "B-13" rotor with an older nickel cased "B-3" rotor.   The "B-3" has copper plates and will generally last 2 to 4 times longer then their aluminum counter parts ($280.00 total).

B-3-rotor rebuilding $150.00
Taking a "B-3" from inventory $50.00
Labor $50.00
Shipping via UPS ground $30.00
Total $280.00

I'll not ship any rotor or motor until I am paid.   Once the old rotor is received, I then rebuild the rotor and test and it generally takes about 2 to 3 months, then it is shipped and will carry a 2-year warranty, once payment is received.

If you want to send in the clock for motor or rotor replacement, please be advised that shipping will jump from $10.00 to $80.00 with everything else staying the same.  The increase covers return shipping and insurance and includes my labor charge of $50.00 for the replacement ($230.00 total).

A Quick Guide for installing the Telechron B Rotors

Installing the Telechron "B" rotor is a fairly straight forward job.  There are two large, usually brass, screws which hold the entire "motor".   The motor consists of the rotor, field, and coil.  The only "catch" is that there is a pinion gear screwed onto the flat portion on the shaft of the rotor.   This must be removed before you can remove the "motor".   Most times the entire movement must be completely removed from the case in order to access this pinion.  Sometimes it is a little tough in locating and loosing this screw because the clock may have stopped with the flat portion of the rotor's shaft facing away from your access point.  You need to loosen this screw and then the pinion will slide off and this can happen when you remove the "motor".

A VERY important note is that the pinion MUST be placed back in the same position and the same orientation on the rebuilt rotor as it was on the dead rotor.   This installation can usually only be done once the rebuilt rotor and the rest of the "motor" is installed in the clock's movement.

There is a brass collar at the point where the shaft protrudes from the rotor.   This collar must be seated into the hole located at the point where the rotor shaft enters the clock movement.   This collar makes sure that rotor is seated properly.

The word "TOP" is located on the rotor and that word should be facing straight up so that the rotor can self lubricate.   In other words, the word "TOP" should be facing your ceiling.   If you do not install the rotor correctly, it will shorten its life significantly.

Another area of caution is the coil.  The coil has two very fine wires connecting to the larger wires, which eventually connect to the power source.   These break very easily and please DON'T try to pull the motor away from the movement because this may break the wires on the coil.  And any extra or rough handling of the coil can and will result in wire breakage.   So please handle the "motor" with great care.

To determine whether or not you need a coil, you can take a Multimeter or Volt/Ohm meter, these are less than $10.00 at any hardware store, and with no current on the motor, set the meter to Ohms and touch the two leads to the end of the wires or the posts where the wires connect and see if you get a reading.   Just about any reading is a good one and if you can see the coil #, that represents the Ohm reading so if your coil is a # 60 coil then you should get about 60 or 600 ohms depending on the setting of the meter.

Telechron "B" Rotors

The type "B" is the larger rotor which generally turns at the rate of 1 R.P.M.

Most "B" rotors cost $150.00 plus $10.00 priority mail (Canada is $20.00) and have a 2-year warranty, which brings your total cost to $160.00 assuming you send the old rotor.  The exceptions are the M-1 & M-31 Rotors.

I must have the old rotor or add $50.00.  Aluminum rotors will NOT qualify as an exchange for their copper and nickel counterparts.  Typically aluminum rotors have a M # of 3300 or higher.  My turn around time is about 2 to 3 months.

If you want to send in the clock for motor or rotor replacement, please be advised that shipping will jump from $10.00 to $80.00 with everything else staying the same.  The increase covers return shipping and insurance and includes my labor charge of $50.00 for the replacement ($230.00 total).

Telechron Telechron "B"   "M-1" "M-31" "M-38"   Rotor

The type "B" is the larger rotor which generally turns at the rate of 1 R.P.M.   The "B-2" M-1 is the most difficult rotor to work on and the M-31's is the original "B-3" and extremely hard to find and why they cost $100.00 more than other "B" rotors for replacement.

The M-1 is the original "B-2" rotor and very rare.   These rotor have a hole center in order for the long shaft second hand to be inserted.

The M-31 is the highest torque "B" rotor ever build and why it was used in most electric Grandfather clock and many chiming mantel clocks.

The M-38 was the most replaced "B-2" rotor and extremely rare.

All "B-2" M-1 & "B-3" M-38 & "B-2" M-38 rotors cost $150.00 plus $10.00 priority mail (Canada is $20.00) and have a 2-year warranty, which brings your total cost to $160.00.

Because of the rarity, I must have the exact M-1, M-31 or M-38 rotor or add $150.00.   My turn around time is about 2 to 3 months.

If you want to send in the clock for motor or rotor replacement, please be advised that shipping will jump from $10.00 to $80.00 with everything else staying the same.  The increase covers return shipping and insurance and includes my labor charge of $50.00 for the replacement ($230.00 total).

Telechron "B" Rotors Turning @ 60 or 30 R.P.M.'s

The type "B" is the larger rotor.

All 60 & 30 R.P.M. "B" rotors cost $150.00 plus $10.00 priority mail (Canada is $20.00) and have a 2-year warranty, which brings your total cost to $160.00.

I must have the old rotor or add $100.00.  The reason for the price increase is because "B's" turning at 60 & 30 R.P.M.'s are extremely rare.  Aluminum rotors will NOT qualify as an exchange for their copper and nickel counterparts.  Typically aluminum rotors have a M # of 3300 or higher.  My turn around time is about 2 to 3 months.

36 Tooth Pinion for Most "B" Chiming Clocks

Most Herschede, Revere, & Telechron chiming clocks take the "B" rotor and attached to that rotor is a 36 tooth pinion.   These pinions are lost at a far too great of a rate.   I have a small stock of these pinions, which are guaranteed to be an exact replacement or your purchase price will be refunded to you upon the pinion's return.

All 36 tooth pinions cost $50.00 plus $10.00 priority mail (Canada is $20.00) and are guaranteed to fit and work properly, which brings your total cost to $60.00.

If you want to send in the clock for pinion replacement, please be advised that shipping will jump from $10.00 to $80.00 with everything else staying the same.  The increase covers return shipping and insurance and includes my labor charge of $50.00 for the replacement ($130.00 total).

The type "H" is the standard sized rotor which generally turns at the rate of 3.6 R.P.M.

Most "H" rotors cost $100.00 plus $10.00 priority mail (Canada is $20.00) and have a 2-year warranty, which brings your total cost to $110.00 assuming you send the old rotor.  If your "H" rotor is aluminum it is far too fragile for rebuilding and I substitute a copper and nickel "H" rotor at an additional $50.00 for a total of $150.00 plus $10.00 priority mail (Canada is $20.00), which brings your total cost to $160.00.

I must have the old rotor or add $50.00.  Aluminum rotors will NOT qualify as an exchange for their copper and nickel counterparts.  Typically aluminum rotors have a M # of 3300 or higher.  My turn around time is about 2 to 3 months.

Telechron "H" Rotors Turning @ 14.4 R.P.M.'s (M-3218) & (M-3473)

The type "H" is the standard sized rotor.

All 14.4 R.P.M. "H" rotors cost $150.00 plus $10.00 priority mail (Canada is $20.00) and have a 2-year warranty, which brings your total cost to $160.00 assuming you send the old rotor.  The reason for the price increase is because "H's" turning at 14.4 R.P.M.'s are extremely rare.

I must have the old rotor or add $100.00.  Aluminum rotors will NOT qualify as an exchange for their copper and nickel counterparts.  Typically aluminum rotors have a M # of 3300 or higher.  My turn around time is about 2 to 3 months.

A Quick Guide for installing the Telechron S Rotors

Installing the Telechron "S" rotor is a fairly straight forward job.  There are two large, usually brass, screws which hold the entire "motor".   The motor consists of the rotor, field, and coil.  The only catch is that the rotor MUST be placed back in the same position and the same orientation on the NOS rotor as it was on the dead rotor.  So please be sure to mark the position of the old rotor so that you have a reference point because both the running of the clock or timer and position of the rotor depends on the NOS rotor being placed in exactly as the old rotor.

There is a brass collar at the point where the gear protrudes from the rotor.   This collar must be seated into the hole located at the point where the rotor gear enters the clock movement.  This collar makes sure that rotor is seated properly.

Another problem is that the "S" rotor is usually held by the field very tightly.   Sometimes I have to use a flat screwdriver in order to remove the old rotor.   Since the casing of the rotor is made of aluminum, installing can be difficult because your cannot use any type of  pliers to force the rotor into the field because this might damage the NOS rotor.

I generally install the "S" by hand using only finger pressure.  I have not tried this but I suppose you can use a press or large flat surface vise and force the rotor into the field.   Just be sure that you use the minimum force to install the rotor because of potential damage to the rotor.

Telechron "S-1" Rotors

The type "S" is the smaller sized rotor which generally turns at the rate of 3.6 R.P.M.  These are usually used in timers and appliances and NOT clocks.

All "S-1" rotors are exactly the same.   The reason for the different M-#'s was to identify the customer from Telechron's "point of view".   The S-1 has a 10 tooth pinion.

A N.O.S. "S-1" rotor cost $50.00 plus $10.00 priority mail (Canada is $20.00) and has a 2-year warranty, which brings your total cost to $60.00.

If you want to send in the clock for motor or rotor replacement, please be advised that shipping will jump from $10.00 to $80.00 with everything else staying the same.  The increase covers return shipping and insurance and includes my labor charge of $50.00 for the replacement ($130.00 total).

My turn time is a few days or less.  "S" rotors are never rebuilt and always NOS (New Old Stock), therefore it is not necessary to send me the old rotor because these were always aluminum rotors.

I'll not ship the rotor/motor until I received payment.   I ONLY accept money orders, certified checks, or company checks for payment but repeat customers may use personal checks.  Normally shipping takes place a few days or so after I receive payment and thanks  !

All "S-4" rotors are exactly the same.   The reason for the different M-#'s was to identify the customer from Telechron's "point of view".

A used "S-4" rotor cost $100.00 plus $10.00 priority mail (Canada is $20.00) and has a 2-year warranty, which brings your total cost to $110.00.

Telechron "C" Rotors

The type "C" is the largest rotor which generally turns at the rate of 1 R.P.M.  These are usually used in tower and street clocks.  These are extremely rare.

An original rebuilt rotor cost $650.00 plus $10.00 priority mail (Canada is $20.00) and has a 2-year warranty, which brings your total cost to $660.00 assuming you send the old rotor at time of payment.

I must have the old rotor.  My turn time is around three to four months because I do not have a ready stock and your specific rotor will have to be rebuilt.

I have some in stock but most times I'd need your original, if you don't have an original then add $300.00 for using one from my stock.

"C" rotors usually have two wheels that must be sent out to be made and must be accompanied with ½ payment or payment in full.

It is extremely important that you have the proper coil.  These rotors are either 6 or 12 watts.  The # 37 coil is 6 watts and there may be others.  The point is that a "C" rotor requires 6 watts or two fields and coils for 12 watts in order to reach maximum torque.  The down side is that I do NOT carry the 6 watt coil.

You may get by with a 4 watt coil or doubled to 8 watts but I cannot guarantee that.   I have 4 watt coils in stock.

One thing you can do before you send in the motor is to take a Multimeter or Volt/Ohm meter, these are less than $10.00 at any hardware store, and with no current on the motor, set the meter to Ohms and touch the two leads to the end of the wires or the posts where the wires connect and see if you get a reading.

Just about any reading is a good one. But if you get no reading what-so-ever then the motor's coil is dead and we could try a 4-watt coil and that adds $100.00.

I'll not ship the rotor/motor until I received payment.   I ONLY accept money orders, certified checks, or company checks for payment but repeat customers may use personal checks.  Normally shipping takes place two months or so after I receive payment and thanks !

Telechron "F" Rotors  (M-519) &  (M-667) 


I no longer work on "F" Telechron rotors

The type "F" rotor looks like a viewer you look through at the top of a building or scenic area.  There are two screw holders built right into the steel cast, and this rotor generally turns at the rate of 3.6 R.P.M.

All "F" rotors cost $200.00 plus $10.00 priority mail (Canada is $20.00) and have a 2-year warranty, which brings your total cost to $210.00 assuming you send the old rotor at time of payment.

I must have the old rotor or add $100.00.  Aluminum rotors will NOT qualify as an exchange.  Typically aluminum rotors have a M # of 3300 or higher.  My turn around time is about 2 to 3 months.

If you want to send in the clock for motor or rotor replacement, please be advised that shipping will jump from $10.00 to $80.00 with everything else staying the same.  The increase covers return shipping and insurance and includes my labor charge of $50.00 for the replacement ($280.00 total).

E. Ingraham Motors

I am able to rebuilt all E. Ingraham motors.  All of these motors cost $150.00 plus $10.00 priority mail (Canada is $20.00) and has a 2-year warranty, which brings your total cost to $160.00 assuming you send the old motor.

I must have the old motor in all cases, otherwise I'd have to guess and I hate guessing.   My turn time is around a 2 to 3 months even if you want your specific motor rebuilt.   If you do not send in the old motor, then there is a $50.00 charge in anticipation of the hassles that will ensue.

If you want to send in the clock for motor replacement, please be advised that shipping will jump from $10.00 to $80.00 with everything else staying the same.  The increase covers return shipping and insurance and includes my labor charge of $50.00 for the replacement ($230.00 total).

Just about any reading is a good one. But if you get no reading what-so-ever then the motor's coil is dead and I cannot repair your motor. You should still send it in because I may have an identical one in inventory that I can rebuild.

I'll not ship the motor or the clock until I received payment.  I ONLY accept money orders, certified checks, or company checks for payment but repeat customers may use personal checks.  Normally shipping takes place one week or so after I receive payment and thanks !

International Register (WB & WG) for Cramer, Glo-Dial, Haddon, Haydon, Pennwood, Etc.

I am able to rebuilt all International Register motors.  All of these motors cost $150.00 plus $10.00 priority mail (Canada is $20.00) and has a 2-year warranty, which brings your total cost to $160.00 assuming you send the old motor.

I must have the old motor in all cases, otherwise I'd have to guess and I hate guessing.   My turn time is around 2 to 3 months even if you want your specific motor rebuilt.   If you do not send in the old motor, then there is a $50.00 charge in anticipation of the hassles that will ensue.

If you want to send in the clock for motor replacement, please be advised that shipping will jump from $10.00 to $80.00 with everything else staying the same.  The increase covers return shipping and insurance and includes my labor charge of $50.00 for the replacement ($230.00 total).

One thing you can do before you send in the motor is to take a Multimeter or Volt/Ohm meter, these are less than $10.00 at any hardware store, and with no current on the motor, set the meter to Ohms and touch the two leads to the end of the wires or the posts where the wires connect and see if you get a reading.

Just about any reading is a good one. But if you get no reading what-so-ever then the motor's coil is dead and I cannot repair your motor. You should still send it in because I may have an identical one in inventory that I can rebuild.

Just about any reading is a good one.   But if you get no reading what-so-ever then the motor's coil is dead and I cannot repair your motor.   You should still send it in because I may have an identical one in inventory that I can rebuild.  Using one from my inventory adds $50.00 for a total of $200.00 plus shipping.

Even with a dead (open) reading on the Ohm meter, there is still the possibility that I can cannibalize a new Synchron and incorporate your old gearing.  That is possibly and I have done that in the past but if the internal gear box is worn out see below.   This service add $50.00 for a total of $200.00 plus shipping.

I will clean and lubricate the mechanism, which will help in delivering more power and longevity.

One potential problem with Synchron motors is that I can replace the internal coil but I cannot spend the amount of time required to repair internal gear box at the $150.00 price.   If the motor is extremely important and the internal gear box needs overhauling, then the costs triple to $450.00 plus shipping.

Even with the internal overhaul sooner or later these motor will permanently fail.  I will give my standard 2-year warranty but advise you to look into future alternatives if whatever these are driving is vital to you or your customer.

Fiber (Phenolic) Gears for Most Mastercrafters and Sessions Electrics

Most Mastercrafters and Sessions Electric clocks have a fiber (phenolic) gear, which is driven by the motor.  These drive gears usually break at far too great of a rate.   I have a small stock of these gears, which are guaranteed to be an exact replacement or your purchase price will be refunded to you upon the pinion's return.

All Fiber gears cost $50.00 plus $10.00 priority mail (Canada is $20.00) and are guaranteed to fit and work properly, which brings your total cost to $60.00.

Seth Thomas Capsules - I also have the field and coil.

Seth Thomas used "capsules", made by General Time, in some clocks, which I have a limited supply of used rotors.

The capsules sell for $100.00 plus the usual $10.00 priority mailing (Canada is $20.00), which brings your total cost to $110.00 and has a 2-year warranty.

These capsules are never rebuilt therefore it is not necessary to send me the old rotor.  My turn around time is about 2 to 3 months.

If you want to send in the clock for motor or rotor replacement, please be advised that shipping will jump from $10.00 to $80.00 with everything else staying the same.  The increase covers return shipping and insurance and includes my labor charge of $50.00 for the replacement ($180.00 total).

You might as well test your coil while your in the clock.  So before you order the capsule, take a Multimeter or Volt/Ohm meter, these are less than $10.00 at any hardware store, and with no current on the motor, set the meter to Ohms and touch the two leads to the end of the wires and see if you get a reading.

I have the field and coil as well for $100.00 plus shipping.

Just about any reading is a good one and zero would be perfect.  But if you get no reading what-so-ever then the motor's coil is dead and you will need that as well.  I sell these circular fields, which house the coil, for $100.00 each plus $10.00 shipping in the US.

I'll not ship the field and coil until I received payment.  I ONLY accept money orders, certified checks, or company checks for payment but repeat customers may use personal checks.  Normally shipping takes place one week or so after I receive payment and thanks !

Seth Thomas clocks with Sangamo Motors

.

Dennis Kaye has Sangamo's Motors

SORRY No Sangamo's are available as of 01/04/06

A special note on the Seth Thomas clocks that used Sangamo motors. I have these motors in stock but please be aware that my experience indicates that these clocks ran way pass the "normal" amount of time as compared to other electrics.   Therefore, it is very likely that this clock has bearing plate wear and gear pivot wear because of the unusually long running time.

I mention this because the motor I'll be sending to you will be in great working order but, it may not solve your problem and most likely the movement needs a complete overhaul because of these specific wear problems.

All Sangamo motors cost $150.00 plus $10.00 priority mail (Canada is $20.00) and have a 2-year warranty, which brings your total cost to $160.00 assuming you send the old motor at time of payment.

I must have the old motor or add $50.00 to each option.  Having your specific motor rebuilt my turn time becomes around 4 months.

If you want to send in the clock for motor or rotor replacement, please be advised that shipping will jump from $10.00 to $80.00 with everything else staying the same.  The increase covers return shipping and insurance and includes my labor charge of $50.00 for the replacement.

If a Sangamo motor is purchased and it does not solve your clock's problems there will be $30.00 "restocking" fee, and unless I get the exact motor I sent to you initially, there will be no refund at all.   The motor will be marked for identification purposes.

Sorry for all that but unless the movement is sound on any electric clock, you are wasting both my time and your time.

Coil & Plate Information

Information on Telechron coils is intended as a user guide because many past repair people just grabbed any coil that they could get there hands on and for longer life of the clock and rotor, you should seriously consider replacing the coil if your is not the proper wattage.

If your clock is "humming" and the rotor is not at fault, then your coil could be oversized for the field.   Meaning that if your coil was replaced with an oversized coil, then that will produced a hum which some cannot diagnose.

The "plate" over the back of the rotor has all the information you need. This plate cover contains the following information:
the "type" of rotor needed the volts (V) the current in cycles (CY)
the Model # [either the clock or the movement, not sure] (MOV) the RPM's of the rotor (RPM) the wattage required (W)

Most coils cost $100.00 plus the $10.00 shipping (Canada is $20.00), if that is all you order, otherwise the same shipping package can be used if you order the motor/rotor at the same time, so no additional shipping costs are necessary.

Any coil of the same wattage will work but the inside diameter is slightly different for each and the tightest fitting coil will give the best results.  What I'm saying is that if you need a coil and the coil # is not legible then you should send the field and old coil and I'll find the best fitting good coil and return same.  The cost is the same $100.00 plus shipping.

To insure a tight fit, all Telechron coils are mounted on the field with a bent piece of mainspring steel between the inside of the coil and the field.  This keeps the coil in place and dramatically cuts down on vibrations.   Please be sure to reuse this piece if you install the coil yourself.

There are two exceptions and they are the # 10 and the # 12 coil which are 24 and 20 volts respectfully. These can be used is any situation from 12 to 24 volts. These were typically used in clocks that were part of a door bell system like Nutone. Both the # 10 and the # 12 coil cost $150.00 each plus shipping because they are very rare.

If you want to send in the clock for coil replacement, please be advised that shipping will jump from $10.00 to $80.00 with everything else staying the same.  The increase covers return shipping and insurance and includes my labor charge of $50.00 for the replacement ($180.00 total).

Sending the clock for coil replacement breaks down as follows:

Replacement coil $100.00
Labor $50.00
Return shipping and insurance $30.00

To determine whether or not you need a coil, you can take a Multimeter or Volt/Ohm meter, these are less than $10.00 at any hardware store, and with no current on the motor, set the meter to Ohms and touch the two leads to the end of the wires or the posts where the wires connect and see if you get a reading.   Just about any reading is a good one and if you can see the coil #, that represents the Ohm reading so if your coil is a # 60 coil then you should get about 60 or 600 ohms depending on the setting of the meter.

Once these are gone, they are gone.  These were manufactured over 30 years ago and never put into service.

Like all aluminum rotors these will make some noise but that will not interfere with their operation. If you can wait a few days, I will open the rotor and flush out all old lubricant and lubricate with high quality synthetic, which should bring down the noise some. I highly recommend this but then it becomes a repair and will add at least 3 days to the order and as long as a week.

I have more of the pinion-less rotors than the rotors with pinions.  Please order the pinion-less rotors first because you can always remove the pinion from your existing rotor and transfer it over.  All pinion are attached via a set screw and are either 12 or 15 toothed.   I only have The 15 tooth pinion.

Special on Aluminum New Old Stock (never used) 60 RPM Telechron Chart Recorder Motors (M-3583) "BC-3", includes the field and coil.

I have a limited supply of NOS (new old stock) aluminum "BC-3s complete".   These include my standard 2-year warranty.  The "BC-3" motors are $300.00 each include the field and # 37 coil plus $10.00 priority mail (Canada is $20.00).   That's $310.00 ($320.00) each because of shipping weight.

Here's what I have in aluminum NOS.

Converting a "B-3" rotor to a 60 RPM Chart Recorder Motor for any 60 RPM application.

I can use an old "B-3" Telechron rotor and switch it to a 60 RPM and transfer the shaft from your old rotor to the newly refurbished rotor.  These rotor are made with nickel shells and copper plates, which should last about 3 to 10 times longer than the fiber plates in the aluminum rotors.  All external dimensions are identical.

This would cost $300.00 per unit plus $10.00 priority mail (Canada is $20.00) because I'd have to cut an old rotor open and clean it up and then switch the gears and then cut your old rotor open in order to transfer your output shaft over to the former 1 RPM rotor.

These would still be stamped with the original information and I would hand scribe that it is now a 60RPM rotor and should be stored with some type of explanation, so that any future person would not assume these were 1 RPM rotors.

Who Does the Work?

It should be known that ALL work is done in house
and by me personally.  The exception is fabricating a
new replacement part, which is very rare.

What if the clock needs more service?

Sometimes the electric clock needs to be overhauled even thought all the electrical parts are replaced.

Electric clocks and especially chiming electrics, will wear out and rebuilt rotor or not they will not run or run accurately.   One quick check it to grab the center of the minute hand with your fingers and see if it wobbles.  Meaning that there should be a very slight amount of "up, down, or side to side" play.  If the "play" is greater than a mm or so then there is a good chance the movement will have to be rebuilt in order for the clock to run properly.

If that's the case then please see:
