Hi Herb, I’m Louie. Sorry you had to wait awhile but I’ll do my best to help.

Initially, the motor itself can be tested by powering it with a 12V car battery:

  • • if the motor turns with the battery, then the issue would either be with the wiring connections and/or on the controller;
  • • in some instances, the speed detector may also need checking/adjustment;
  • • carefully try manually turning the motor shaft to determine if it would spin freely.
