Hello Robbo.
Does that unit have an aluminium cover? If so then you can remove the cover (I put them in the lathe and spin them but a dremmel will do the same) and clean the points that are within it.
They usually get going again after a clean up. Use really fine wet and dry. 1600-2000.

Cheers then
Scott

I have restored some to working condition with a light bulb like this...

Failing this there are solid state replacement units available,

Always think about replacing any buffer capacitors at the same time.
