Electric motors are pretty easy to maintain. Keep the connections tight and dry. Grease the bearing on a regular. I would assume that it is relatively expensive to replace. Not to many in the scrap yards. Then you have to find someone who can work on it. Look for a US Navy Electricians mate at the American Legion...
