I will order that. I need to put money on the card.
I cut off the plugs on both motors and hooked both to the brand new controllers I got from wish.com.
One motor works and the other just turns a little and stops like in the video.
That is an old video but doing the same thing.
All the wires are soldered and taped really good. I spent a lot of time on it. Like 9 hours or more. It is after 7 AM and started last night about 10 PM.
There really is nothing more I can do. The weird thing is both motors were doing that before I cut the 9 pin plugs off both motors but I had one motor working after cutting the 9 pin plugs off and now one motor works and the other does that.
It really makes no sense. I guess I was wrong about the 9 pin plug , the extension cable and the e bikeling controller.
When I did get the one working after cutting off the plug the first and second time I tried it there was nothing then it started working.
Both motors worked great with the Greentime sensorless controller though.
SUNDER said they will not work right with a sensorless controller.
The problem with geared motors vs direct drive, is that your bike can be moving, but the motor is not, so that jolt is (1) going to feel rough, and (2), makes it harder to get the back EMF, because as soon as the clutch engages, the motor will be brought up to speed with the wheel multiplied by the reduction ratio. The next bit I don't really understand that well. Someone once explained it to me, but the end result is that if you don't sync it perfectly, you can trigger off an over-current condition.
So now I really do not know what to do. I guess the one motor I got on the back might work with the sensor wires as it did once but the one on the front wont. What could it be ?
I really hope Battery Clearing house did send me a 50% refund as my guess is it is a bad sensor inside the motor. Since I cut the 9 pin plug off there really cant be another cause.
I do not even know how to take those motors apart. I don't see any cover screws. Should I go ahead and try to run it with one of the sensorless controllers or not ? It is either that or just throw at least one in the dumpster as don't think it is possible to take it apart and fix the bad sensor if I could even know which one is bad.
What should I do. I spent a lot of time and money and ordered a total of 6 controllers for those two motors.
1, The e bikeling controller and module I threw out after smashing it.
2. Two 17 amp sensored controllers from Wish.com.
3. Two 18 amp sensorless Greentime controllers.
4. A 12 amp sensorless controller from e bay.
I am still waiting on the two Greentime controllers and the 12 amp from e bay.
I really don't know what to do now. I think the guy from Battery Clearinghouse is a liar but hopefully he gave me a 50% refund.
I don't know if I should try to run it with a sensorless controller or not. I guess I have nothing to lose. I really do not want to run the bike with a single motor either. I wanted dual motors with a single throttle.
It looks like I spent a lot of time building that bike for nothing. I do not want to run one motor and if one controller is sensored and the other sensorless I probably cant use one throttle.
I am out of ideas. It is beyond my skill set. I doubt I could send it out to get repaired. Where would I send it ? I just do not know.
What I do know is that Battery Clearing house are liars. The 50% refund is a joke. I spent a lot of money. $40 don't begin to cover the cost and the time spent.
How could it even be my fault. Obviously it is a bad sensor. What else could it be ? A motor with a bad sensor will work with a sensor less controller right ? So it has to be a bad sensor inside the motor. Also the guy from Battery Clearinghouse said he did not test them. How in the hell are you going to sell something you do not even know if it works or not ? I guess quality control means nothing. I really want to stomp right on that guys head. I am irate.
I build e bikes. There not always pretty or practical but sometimes they work, at least for awhile. Immortality is not a dream but the future of our evolution. We were given the tools to forge our own destiny. We were created in gods image and shall evolve to live forever.
