One of my hub motors stopped spinning. At first I had a problem where one of the motors needs to be in a certain position to “catch” and spin, once it got up to speed it was fine, and never noticeable as long as I kick-started my board. Now I can’t get it into gear at all. I can hear the motor spin up as I push the throttle and the hub “twitches”, but it’s not spinning, not even from a rolling start. if I try to step on the board and give it throttle the controller vibrates and blinks constantly and it’s obvious something is broken/loose inside the motor.
I have unplugged the motor from under the battery which lets me run single motor, which works okay, but of course I want dual hub motors. I plugged it back in the other day and got it working somewhat for about 15 minutes until it broke down again.
Any ideas what could cause this? and also any advice on getting the 13mm nut loose inside the hub cap? I got a skate tool with the landwheel which IS thin enough… But they decided to put a thick plastic cover around it which makes it impossible to reach, and I’m worried if I try to file that down the entire tool will break.
