Are you having a problem with either one of the motors? If so what is it?i have 2 17.5 novak motors and one of them when u turn it it has 6 clogs to make one turn on the motor and the other one has 3 is one better then the other and why are they different any info would be great thanks
Check to see if the rotor is turning (slipping) on the rotor shaft. This has happened in the past.i tryed the one with 3 clogs and it didnt want to turn hooked to the esc so i took the rotor out and put another in and it was fine and it had 6 clogs so its in the rotor
Overheating a motor significantly can melt the epoxy adhesive binding the magnet to the shaft. Any user, who has seriously overheated a BL motor (any mfgs' BL motor) should replace the rotor ASAP.i cant turn it on the shaft i have one from a freind that got his to hot and now it doesnt stay on the shaft
125 F is overheating? Can I send my 3 cogger back?Overheating a motor significantly can melt the epoxy adhesive binding the magnet to the shaft. Any user, who has seriously overheated a BL motor (any mfgs' BL motor) should replace the rotor ASAP.
Overheating demagnetizes the rotor's magnetic material. In addition to not running properly, this bad rotor can damage your controller.
We have seen a lot of seriously damaged motors in the last year---enough for us to change our service policies. Improper use of adjustable esc timing can overheat the motor and melt some of the wire insulation: thus shorting out the windings.
