There are posts and threads about how to find the right phase/hall combination (combo).
There are theoretically 36 combinations, but most of those are duplicates of others, so what I'd recommend is going to the ES WIki and following the article there for Finding The Right Phase / Hall Combo Wiring (don't remember teh exact wording of the title). There's a thread with the same title as the article in the Motor Technology section, probably listed in the Sticky Index.
Until you're *sure* you have the right combination, I wouldn't recommend running the system under load, because you can overheat the motor and / or the controller, potentially burning out windings, damaging hall sensors, blowing FETs, etc. Then you end up with all sorts of possible problems, many of which have similar symptoms to each other, making it much harder to quickly narrow down which one(s) are there, and fixing them.
When you have the right combo, a system will not take but a couple of amps (typically) to run unloaded (off ground) at full throttle in the rotation direction you want.
If it takes a lot more, or it always runs rough, regardless of what wiring combo, you have a problem in the motor or controller or both, and you'll have to individually test each one to see if they're working.
has troubleshooting info in teh Learn tab across the top of their site, that will help you test each of the parts that might be damaged, if you can't get it to run correctly with any combo.
You'll also want to disconnect anything other than the CA's shunt, so it is only *measuring* things, and is not *controlling* anything or *limiting* anything. That way you can be sure your problems are not caused by a wrong setting there.
Once the motor and controller and battery are known to be working correctly, *then* you can hook up and setup the CAv3. I'd recommend going to http://ebikes.ca
and the CAv3 pages, then to the section about Teklektik's UUG, download the guide as linked there, and follow *all* steps from the very beginning to the very end to be sure you setup everything in the CA to match your usage and needs.
If you don't go thru all the settings, you may leave something (even something you don't use) set in a way that interferes with other things you do use, because a number of the settings interact with each other.
