I've just signed up to this forum in the hope that someone might be able to shed some light on an electric motor that I have.
My great grandparents bought an electric ride on toy for my nephew, but it won't go, so my grandpa asked if I could have a look at it, as I'm generally pretty good with fixing those kinds of things. I've pretty much worked out that it must be the electric motor that is dead, as everything else is getting the correct voltages and working as expected.
I haven't really had many dealings with electric motors, so I don't know how to test if one is dead or not, but seeing as though they don't really cost that much, I'm just going to replace it with a new one, that way I know it will definitely be working, and hopefully be working for a little while longer than if it had an old motor in there.
Anyway, I was wondering what would be an equivalent electric motor, as I can't find the exact same one anywhere that I can easily purchase from.
The electric motor that is in the ride on toy at the moment is a "QG Motor" with the numbers "RS-380". It's also got "6VDC" printed on the side, with "12000/12W", which I assume means 12000 rpm?
I would really like some help in finding an equivalent, if not better, electronic motor, so I can swap it out, and make my grandparents very happy
