Jefferson Golden Helm, Minute, Secret, & Suspense Clock Motors
I am able to rebuilt all Jefferson "Golden" motors. All of these motors cost $150.00 plus $15.00 priority mail (Canada is $25.00) and has a 2-year warranty, which brings your total cost to $165.00. I must have the old motor in all cases, otherwise I'd have to guess and I hate guessing. If you do not send in the old motor, then there is a $100.00 charge in anticipation of the hassles that will ensue and for using one from my inventory. If you want to send in the clock for motor replacement, please be advised that shipping will jump from $15.00 to $100.00 with everything else staying the same. The increase covers return shipping and insurance and includes my labor charge of $50.00 for the replacement ($250.00 total). My turnaround is 4 to 5 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. 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 one week or so after I receive payment and thanks !
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.
**One note: If your Golden Hour clock is running fast or slow then, most likely, the glass is no longer properly glued to the ring that is driven by the motor.
***Second note: I have new stock chains for the Golden Suspense. Over time the chain stretches out and the clock no longer keeps accurate time but with one of these chains, the clock will keep accurate time again. The cost is $50.00 plus shipping, which is $15.00 in the U.S. using Priority Mail.
For return shipping I use USPS for all shipping. If you want to use another carrier then you will have to arrange everything for shipping, meaning I hand the box to the driver, get a receipt and nothing else.
If, for any reason, I cannot rebuild your motor or I cannot salvage an exact substitute, then I'll return your motor at no charge what-so-ever, unless it was expedited service.
