Sounds like might be a lose wire or bad solder joint to one of wires to motor.

Had the same experience dude, I agree with Milton, mine was a bad solder joint, you're gonna have to take the shrink tube off all the joints to check them.
good luck.

ditto

The wires often break either rite at the conector (can be fixed if you are carefull) or where they enter the motor housing (a real bear and probably a lost cause).

By the way - sorry I forgot to mention this - when ever a motor fails to start - for any reason - DO NOT keep trying to run it. Imediately close the throttle.

When your motor is doing that jerky back and forth thing it is pulling many many times more amps than normal. You can blow the controller in a heart beat or melt a winding in the motor.
