Really Weird Motor Behavior


#1

I’m not sure what I did but check this out. Sounds like something is wrong…


#2

Sounds like the beginnings of a short …

How old is the motor?


#3

about two weeks old


#4

Are any if your phase wires touching?

Play with motor timing


#5

I’ve been changing esc settings like a madman, so I’m certain its not the timing. I don’t believe the phase wires are touching. Sadly I can’t open up the motor either because all four allen key holes are stripped. They came that way :confused:


#6

I would … if possible open it and take a look as @barajabali said … I would limit further use unless your are searching for the reason


#7

Put another motor on that esc to single out the issue


#8

That’s odd how can it come that way?


#9

If you have a user manual to your ESC, look up what the blinking on the ESC means. That should help you find where the problem is.


#10

What do mean by stripped Allen key holes? Is the motor stuck to the mount? All these motors are held together simply by a c-clip on the closest part of the shaft.
Have u tried riding it. Maybe different under load. The vesc jumps either full throttle on or off when unloaded


#11

From my experience it looks like configuration issue (not having good ESC setting). Could be motor timing and or other things or even compatibility issue.


#12

How did you connect the wires that go into the motor? Did you use any strain relief? I killed this type motor just yesterday exactly in this manner ( the wires wiggled so much that the stator winding wires snapped one by one. You should be able to see it when you wiggle the wires ans shine a spotlight into the motor.
