I do not Know the age, may be 10to 12 tears old.
I have a second machine and having swapped motors, the fault lies in the motor which has some type of centrifugal switching in it as well as a switch on top. The FMG (manufacturing?) date on it is E96A9 , 1996?
P/N XXXXXXXXX 4, Model C67ZZFGY-4048.
Second motor worked in first machine. First motor dysfunctional, and is now only starting if encouraged by pulling the belt to initiate rotation.
