My We brushless motor stopped working today. The lights on the controller have a steady red light and blinking green light. The throttle indicates full charge. My multimeter reads over 36 volts on the three prong connection from controller to wheel. Any suggestions ?

Did you get your problem fixed ?

I have the same issue with the blinking green light on my controller.

I get some power to the motor, but it is not drawing much Amps, and only spins at about 8mph.
The motor vibrates a lot, and is noisy.

It may be time for a new controller ?

Re: WE Stopped working

It's nice you you figured out problem. Typically, the battery wiring can come loose. Other wires can also be pinched/bent thereby leading to poor contact. If you didn't overvolt or overwork your controller, it's likely a contact problem. That's my experience on brushless and brushed motors. But I previously cut the wiring near the hub axle. This can cause all sorts of problems.
