Just like the title says my motor is sparking and smoking.
I have been having the worst luck building my electric skateboard and I am unsure why.
- Torqueboards single motor mechanical kit
- Electric Skateboard Motor 5055 280KV
- 2x Zippy Lipo 5000 mah batteries
- 1 Series connector
- 120a FVT ESC
- GT2B Controller
I have not actually ridden my board because so far whenever I have turn it on and tested upside down on the ground , the motor has been giving me issues. Sometimes it sparks or even begins to smoke, I’ve stayed away from even thinking to ride it in case of something really bad happens. It usually doesn’t start happening unless the motor has either been going for awhile or max throttle. When it does happen I immediately stop and turn it off. I have tried all wire connections from the ESC to the motor. This is also my third ESC because I thought it was an ESC issue. I have tried to programm my ESC to the lowest power settings and the highest ,Checked all voltages, Checked all batteries, Checked the motor and around it and the way its positioned .
If anyone could help me I would greatly appreciate it, Thanks.
