Good question. It's not the kind of information you typically find in a manufacturer's spec sheet.

The shelf-life of a typical DC motor should be quite a few years unless stored in particularly hostile conditions. Possible failure modes might include:

* Insulation degradation due to extreme temperatures or exposure to harmful chemical vapors.

* Corrosion due to storage in very high humidity conditions or exposure to liquid water.

* Lubrication degradation due to evaporation or contamination. This could be accelerated by prolonged exposure to high temperatures.
