Where can I order motor for drum humidifier?

Gar Furance: Rheem Criterion installed 1993.
Problem: Motor for drum humidifier stops running after sponge gets wet

Drum humidifier has stopped delivering moisture for long time due to water pipe for it leaks. The motor was running fine when sponge was dry. I fixed pipe leaking problem but found motor stops running if drum sponge gets wet, which probably increases drum weight that motor can't offer enough power to keep it running.

I have two questions:
1. Where can I order drum humidifier motor? I am going to replace it.
2. Does this motor keep running for 24/7? I found the power for this motor is supplied by a power transformer that connects 110V wire before control broad. No matter furnace was on or off, it kept running all the time before.

Thanks for any input.
