If the motor hums it may be that the brushes are worn.

Is there a make and model number anywhere on the 'dolls'?

Post some close up pictures back here, perhaps someone may be able to identify them exactly and be of further help.

Here's how Adding images to an existing question

I do appreciate you help in trying to help me I tried to add photos by the page does not allow me to do that on the motor----2.5 ccw/cw AC 120 v 50/60 Hz 5/6 rpm thank you


Hi @sueanne1 ,

Didn't this work for you then?Adding images to an existing question


sue clinto, sorry the hobby shop was of no help, if these Doll's are very sentimental, perhaps try a small appliance repair shop or clock repairer/maker if able as they deal with this type of stuff also and may have leads to replacement parts or will actually do repair. Below I posted a couple links perhaps you will see a like motor in the pic's and you can click on for details,price,availability. If your dolls have a make and model# you can also google for replacement parts perhaps. Good luck.

@sueanne1 , Sue, If you are able to disassemble Christmas doll and check that the motor is indeed the problem and not perhaps a stripped gear or possibly out of adjustment. You can then take the motor/gear with you to a good hobby shop and find replacement part perhaps. You could also try a search on the net for replacement part using the make and model of your Doll. If not keen on trying the repair yourself, try a good local small appliance repair shop. Good luck. I hope this helped you out, if so let me know by pressing the helpful button.
