Default LRP Vector motor faults

Folks
Does anyone here know how to fix brushless Vector motors? My problem stems from what i believe is a continuous overload scenario.

As a result, i have now two sick motors, eg. 6.5 and 7.5 turns.

Thanks for replying

It ran for less than a min and failed. Then by spinning the rotor, depending on luck, sometimes i can get it to spin again but failed soon after. Like it could not sense the rotor. Also, i could feel the motor spinning is a bit jerky.

Try this ..

Check sensor wire and plug`s...
Clean sensor by removing rotor and sensor cover and spray with motor wash and the blow dry with air hose...
Check sensor cover for oil or dirt and clean...

make sure your wiring is right. If it still doesnt run, send it back.

Ive had problems with Vector motors as well. A good replacement is the trinity duo line of motors and the novak velociti series. Both awsome motors

I had the same issue, checked all the wires and could not find anything wrong with it. Would not accelerate freely, i had to spin the rotor to get it to work and it was very very jerky at low rpm's. i am actually sending it back this week. i am curious to see what they say.

tried everything from sensor wires to swapping of rotors. even checked the bearings. seems fine but just would not spin smoothly. esc works fine with other motors.

i'll try spraying the inside with cleaning solution.

Just spray the sensor cover and electronic`s on the end of motor...


remove rotor and bearing first before spraying....
