I'll try taking apart the esc next to see if it all looks good & clean in there.
I considered sending it in to novak, but after viewing their handling and testing fees; I figured it would be generally cheaper to just get another used combo or maybe just a esc. I can't imagine them doing much more for a discontinued esc than maybe a $10 test and then offering a trade in. It's very understandable for any business to do that; but maybe I'm wrong in thinking that?
I'd much rather get another SS 5800 used combo and possibly have a backup motor for the price of upgrading my esc.
Anyone in the nnj area with a SS esc willing to test out my motor?
Is there anyway I can test the sensors in the motor or look for a specific resistance value on the coils? I'm hoping there's a Novak diagnostics web page that I haven't found yet! I wish I had an oscilloscope to test the output of the esc.
I appreciate all the input though
