There are 3 combos, but I've heard out of the three one will draw a bit less.

Also 3.41 does sound high, unless you have field weakening enabled.

I would expect something closer to 2A. +1 on the field weakening. The PV controller can be set up for field weakening, which would make the no load current higher. If you program the speed for 100%, that should turn off the field weakening. Also check for things like dragging brakes.
