So i have been running dual setup on my board for a while now no problems until this morning. Feel one motor cut out on the way to work. I stop at side of road to check things out. Seems to be working intermittently. decide its best to disconnect power and motor cables and carry on to work with just one motor.
At lunch i remove focbox . . . . quite sure i can smell something odd. take case off and im greeted with this :
looks like something somewhere has shorted. It seems like the caps that go to the first wire are damaged as well as the trace on the left side of them.
There was also some loose pieces of ferrite in the case. my best guess is that some pieces broke off the inductor ant touched something they shouldn’t have have.
Is it possible that broken ferrite could have caused this damage?
If caused by the ferrite, would it be covered under warranty?
If not has anyone else had a similar failure?
Is there any way to fix the damage?
