You would need a DC permanent magnet or shunt wound motor of the correct voltage- but your controller may or may not be working- try to download
the schematic/manual if you can, it should tell you what type of motor to use and the voltage and current ratings.

You're welcome- If it needs fixing I might be able to help you troubleshoot it, but it really helps to have the schematic on hand.

ps sounds like a pretty good deal for 1$, especially if it works!

you can test it by putting a few bulbs across the output, it should vary the brightness as you turn the control - that will save you buying a DC motor just to find it's fried :)
