So as stated on the title both my drives have problems.
- the first one is a V3 upgraded to V4, my problem is that one motor heats up exponentially more than the other. The last time i rode the board I had to stop because heat was getting too much and the thermal throttling I usually have didn’t work.
Metr data Motor 1 was at 85° Celcuis Motor 2 was at 165° Celcuis ( crazy I know I think it’s a bug )
When I saw those temps I first thought it was a bug so I touched the motors the first one was casually hot… The second one was so hot I couldn’t even touch it ( touching it for 1/10sec would burn )
I dismantled the motor and here are the pics
I have cleaned everything as much as I could, all the bearings are working fine, no resistance. There’s weird bubbles on the coils. When I put back the rotor there’s a huuuuge resistance and I can feel/hear click click click click when I turn the motor manually with lot of physical resistance.
Is it dead ?
Motor number 2 had a completely different problem I have only rode the drive for 15 km because the ring on the bearing would go out, creating some sort of gap. I stopped to use the drive right away cause security concerns at 30 MPH ya know’ Jerry said it was fine but I was not confident.
I have repaired the problem with a manual press and I kind of did the job, everything is aligned as it should. I dismantled the motor too and inspected inside all seems fine the bearing itselfs rolls well.
But when I put back the rotor in place I have a sort of clicking feel ( but no noise ) like a magnetic click . Now it’s like that, all aligned ( it’s the left motor on the picture ) but I am afraid it will heat up a lot with so much resistance.
Right now I can’t use any of my 1200 $ drive so any help or technical tips is appreciated ! Thanks
