I got the new motor and the new controller from two different sources. The motor had trailer connector on the phase wires and the controller had Anderson connectors. I matched the phase wire colors and switched the motor to Andersons.
The controller I purchased was an instant start type.
When I plugged everything tother I found that the motor didn't want to start without some help and it shudders and jerks at low speeds and under load.
Before I had my battery I hooked the controller up to a small 48V AC/DC adapter to check some things. While this was connected I moved the throttle accidentally and the wheel tried to start. Could starting the motor with not enough power cause a problem?
Looking at the hall effect wires I found:
Looking at the hall effect connectors it looks like:
I cleaned the hall contacts with contact cleaner with no success.
I kept the:
the same and tried all six combinations of the other three wires. The wheel didn't spin when the wheel was off the ground and the throttle applied.
I then tested the voltages of the hall effect wires as they came off the controller. I assumed black was ground. I found:
Red - Black 4.3V
Brown - Black 5.0V
Blue - Black 4.8V
Yellow - Black 5.0V
I was under the impression that you should't hook the +5V and ground in the hall bundle to the wrong terminal, but, since two if the wires are +5V I'm not sure what to make of that.
Anyone have any advice?
