Well that's the way I understood them. They told me that if the motor was burnt up it wasn't any good for a core. So I figured it wasn't worth anything, but junk. I didn't want to go back with that same motor anyway, even if they could have rebuilt it. I need a motor with a lot more pulling power.

Just makes me wonder if it was the motor being your problem the whole time, I would just be sure like everyone lse said check and recheck the new one

I'm going to do a better job on checking for over heating. PQ also said they didn't recommend tire size over 22" for my type of cart, being a shunt motor. Which I have 23" tires. I'm not putting PQ down by any means, I just thought I was asking to much out of the purple motor.

i send motors to my motor shop at least 1 a week ( ac motors ) and for the most part it is the windings that melt and have to have new wire wound around the fields.

not sure if they can rewind the commutator on a dc motor though. But how can they say lost cause without even looking at the motor....not good PQ relations if you are representing what they actually mean.

why don't you just give them a chance to examine and possible recondition for torque

I'm not worried about rebuilding my burnt up motor. I figured PQ knows what there talking about when it comes to rebuilding a motor. The way I look at it, the bandit is a little more than a stock motor. I wanted to change anyway, it just so happen to burn up before I got to. By burning up it just speed the process up.

One thing that hasn't been mentioned here is program recommendation. PQ recommends that all sepex controllers have the Regen and the Turbo turned off for their motors. This is especially important with the Alltrax controls but, it's also necessary for the FSIP or GE controls.
I hope this helps.

I'm here... learning. I have zero experience with aftermarket controllers so my opinion would be just that, an opinion.

When i ordered my Bandit motor from PQ Robby wanted to know what controller i was going to use i told him a Alltrax 500 he told me not to set my controller @ 100% and to make sure i left the turbo off.

no not 400 amps.... but it's all relative. a motor geared for 400 amps with have considerable heaver windings than a motor pulling only 30 amps LOCKED ROTOR.

the windings of EITHER size motors act like fuses and just melt. the point is what other material in the motor is subject to the intense heat moments before the "MELT" occurs.

replacing winds on the "commutator" that might be a lot of impossibility.... but in either case....if it was me I would send back just for evaluation and maybe some form of credit to a hi-torque motor
