Hmm... that's a controller issue.
Does that model have regenerative braking? If so, you might try disabling it in software just as a test. That is certainly a strange behavior and I have not heard of anything quite like that before. It's definitely possible the controller is somehow defective.
I'd suggest contacting the seller and ask them for advice.
Yes, those wires are damn tight. I wish there was a way to make the hall signals wireless to the controller. That would be so handy.
I've actually looked into doing just that, but the solutions are a bit complex for my liking. It could be done for sure though.
