My guess is the motor has just seized from lack of use.

It was working OK with no noise, nice smooth running.

Then it stopped working, and is still really noisy, especially on startup.

Any suggestions for replacements? Cheers

Highly unlikely to get a replacement motor,and would not want to replace with an AC motor as you lose the clean LF end and the attack that comes with it.
Funks VX or whatever motor mods are very expensive and Originlive mods don't have the best of reputation and are quite expensive with it.
Have a look at this

Wonder if this would be a suitable donor?

Just might be lucky.
Seems to have had a very hefty drop (thrown?)
I would be suspect of the state of the PCB,the socket even on mine was cracked and it was nowhere near as badly damaged externally.
There is obviously power on the board for the strobe.
Has the motor pulley been damaged?
Your call :? for £30
