Works as expected

Very nice good price. Shipping took awhile considering I am 1 hour away from the location ;). But would buy it again.

First motor was great, 2nd one broke instantly

I've been running one of these 3RPM motors for a couple of months now and it is great. So, I fired up my 2nd one tonight, and once it encountered resistance there was a snap and the motor stopped. I opened it up and saw that a tooth had broken off one of the internal plastic gears. I'd enclose pics but I do not see a way to do so.

Is there any way to get a replacement gear? The motor started running again after I opened it (probably when the broken off tooth unjammed).

Is there a warranty? Thank you.

Just for a little context - I'm using these motors to make my own walking machine....
