Truster trying to turn

(davo) #1

Hi all,
One of my vertical trusters stopped working today. It tries to rotate, but stops and start in small spurts. I removed propeller and everything is clean. when you rotate by hand you can feel as if something is catching. I disassembled motor by removing collars, everything is clean?
As mentioned it tries to turn?

hey @spudder

I had almost the same problem, Did you remove the magnetic coupling to check it inside? something could be stuck inside or the coupling could be corroded.

Hi Luis,
yes removed coupler and found no corrosion or foreign object.
armeture is very clean.
thanks for reply Luis.

Try connecting it to another ESC

I changed out the T200 Thruster.
Alls good know.
Still would like to know why the thruster packed it in as there wasn’t much dive time on it?
