Default Servo motor gone for good??

Hi all,

the DC servo motor on my trusty old Bang&Olufsen Beogram TX2 turntable (maybe not high end but at least expensive ) had been making a constant, loud, ticking sound for some time (most annoying). Suddenly last weekend the ticking stopped but now the motor runs very fast (faster than the old 78’ers!! ). The motor is a FG servo code MMX-4HrRPB.

I am certainly no expert on this, but my interpretation is that the servo sensor somehow must have been damaged. Does that make sense? Anyone knows if it is possible to find a replacement motor.

Greatly appreciate any input
