Mach3 and Spindle Problem

   Mack3 and Spindle Problem.

I am not sure if this is the right place for my problem but I have no idea where
else to try.
I have a 3040 s Chinese Router and Milling machine purchased in 2011 it works all right except that the original spindle motor is faulty and needs replacement. I have not been able to find a replacement after many hours of searching the Internet.
The original motor was 200w Dc with an external diameter of 57mm No other markings.

My question is can I fit a 300w, 400w or 500w motor and will it work safely using my
Existing Mach 3 software?
My Mach3 software runs the machine through a 3 Axis Mini-CNC Controller purchased with the 3040 some 10 years ago. Is it safe to increase the watt rating of the spindle motor without any problems?
Many thanks for any help.
