brushless motor repair?
Ive got a brushless outrunner motor that had a gentle impact last weekend, and pushed the shaft back through a little.
Easy fix me thinks, and loosens the grub screw, slides the shaft forward again until the surclip is flush against the the rear of the motor, and does the grub screw back up.
Problem is that the stator now seems loose.
Im thinking that the stator should be glued to the mounting plate of the motor?
Is that correct?
Ive got some permanant loctite here that would do the job. Is that OK?
I also have another brushless motor that smoked, is it worth trying to rewind it, or is it better to just bin it and get a new one?

The stator should be glued to the mounting plate, locite should be ok, just be aware that some glues eg. CA will eat the enamel coating on the windings.
How many magnets and stator poles does it have?
Another thing to consider is the condition of the stator. The fried windings could have destroyed the insulation on the stator.

I glued the stator with Loctite, and its all good now. I was very careful not to get any glue on anything that shouldnt have glue on it. I guess a test run this afternoon will tell me if it was a successful repair.
And it sounds very much like too much effort to rewind the other motor.
Ill keep it for the shaft and grub screws, and order another one from UH.
Monday = brushless motor order day!
