Help me find a replacement electric motor for my vacuum cleaner?

I have a Eureka 431BX. It has a spinning brush roll on the bottom, driven by an electric motor (not the main vacuum motor). This motor has failed. I'm hoping it's a standard part that I can order online, but I don't know enough about electronics to find it. Hoping someone here is good at sourcing parts like this :)
The motor has a label that is partially illegible due to a piece of foam glued on top of it. Here's what I can decipher:
120V / 60Hz ????????6C7F
And here's someone else's photo
of the disassembled vacuum (same model).
* I've disassembled the vacuum and run the motor without the attached belt; it makes a few revolutions and then stops. A yellow failure light comes on.
* I've cleaned all the hair and fuzz out, and tried blowing it out with compressed air
* Vacuum is out of warranty. Eureka customer service was sympathetic but not very helpful
