hope all are enjoing the chrismas season at home.
As part of our maintenance schedule we were calibrating, checking our Blue ROV.
one of the motors (forward port) was totally stucked. It did not move at all.
I opened it up and found the Rotor very rusted and stucked to the outter part in few points of the motor, I cannot take them apart, it is very clear that the issue was caused by water ingress, similar to the case below.
I understood that the motors are waterproof, I have few questions:
- is this a common issue?
- Is this motor part of a batch of faulty units?,
- Is there a guarantee?,
this ROV was bought on April 2019, I have only few dives with it.
