Issue with Single motor

(Kyle Pereira) #1

Hey there,

So yesterday, all 6 motors on my BlueROV were working, but today, motor #1 is failing to spin properly. It begins by sounding like something is trying to spin inside but the blade doesn’t turn and then after a couple of seconds, it beeps twice, first lower then a higher pitch. What could be causing this?

Thanks,
Kyle Pereira

I can also supply a video if this would be deemed useful

Hi Kyle,

I’m sorry you’re having trouble with one thruster! A video would be helpful so we can see exactly what is going on.

I’d also recommend checking to make sure that none of the three wires from the speed controller to the motor has come loose. If the motor is jiggling but not spinning that is usually the cause.

Hey so I just stuck the motor in the water without the propeller on and full throttled it, and then after flopping around, it began working, not sure what changed but there isn’t an issue anymore, thanks for your time still!
