  1. The space between the cooling fan plate and this metal piece is so small. So i just rolled up some electrical tape four fold and it's wedged in between. So it's in place pretty solid. Shouldn't be popping out.... hopefully.
  2. Well i finally got the Mten3 back up and running. I had to get a new motherboard. I hooked it up and it fired up. So it appears the cooling fan plate ended up touching a piece of metal that was connected to the motherboard. I could see where there was an electrical arc. This was caused by a crash from the impact. It stopped working right after that crash. On the new motherboard, the cooling fan plate is really close to this metal piece on the motherboard. So i put some electrical tape in between the plate and this piece to prevent this from happening again.
  3. https://linksharing.samsungcloud.com/h4yhA4dcf02T https://linksharing.samsungcloud.com/uBtmxaNUGQbk This red connection is the power switch. So i tested the pins in the board and got 10-11 for continuity on the meter.
  4. I did all that. I tested the 2 power switch wires and they were good. But the problem is at the motherboard where the 2 wires plug into. That is where i'm getting the 10-11 reading.
  5. I tested the 2 wires for the lift switch. I got a continuity reading if 1.0 (so that is a good reading). When i tested the 2 wires from the power switch, i got a continuity reading of 10-11. So i though maybe there is break in the one of the power switch wires. That's why i traced the power switch wires back to the motherboard. I unplugged it so i can rule out any possible break in the wires. I tested these 2 leads on the board. Got 10-11 ......so not good right from the motherboard.
  6. I did that with my meter on the 2 wires from the power switch. It shows a high number of 10.5-11. So i knew that was no good. I then traced the wire back to the motherboard. Found the connector. I then pulled off the connector, so i can test the 2 pins this connector is plugged into. Same thing.....i got a high number of 10-11. So there is somerthing wrong that is causing the blockage. I pulled the motherboard off of the heat plate to see if i see any burning from under the board but i could not find anything. So far it's just those 2 tiny burn marks from the pictures i posted.
  7. What do you guys think? Worst case is the motherboard is fried. How much does a new motherboard cost?
  8. Ok i finally got a voltmeter. The battery is good. I did find a little burn spot where the plate where the fan is mounted on.....this plate seemed to have touched a metal piece that is attached to the motherboard. I took some photos. Other than the 2 burn marks (on the fan plate and on the metal thing attached to the motherboard). I could not find any damage on the board itself. https://linksharing.samsungcloud.com/ipNHRnyFOW1Z https://linksharing.samsungcloud.com/t3EYYJz07P3c https://linksharing.samsungcloud.com/ox7oPwPKZg33 https://linksharing.samsungcloud.com/j
  9. I don't have a multimeter. But i'll take it in to get checked out at a local EUC shop. Hopefully they find something simple to repair.
  10. This is what i did. I connected the black and red wire from the lift switch (so basically disabling the lift switch) together by twisting bare ends of these 2 wires together (taped with electrical tape). Then i plugged it back into the motherboard. Then i reconnected the power cables back to the battery. Then i tried to turn on the wheel. No go! Is there another sequence i could do?
  11. I tried connecting the two wires from the lift switch and plugging back into the mother board. Still nothing happened. Looks like the wheel is dead! The only thing i did not too is tear open the battery to see if any of the connectors burnt off like what happened to Marty Backe's Mten 3. Just don't feel like tearing the battery apart yet.
  12. Ok i'll try to twist connect the two wires from the lift switch together and plug the wires back into the mother board. I'll try this tomorrow and see what happens. Thanks for all your help👍
  13. Well i unplugged the lift switch from the mother board. The wire was just a simple quick disconnect plug. No luck, still doesn't work. I gave up for today. I just put everything in a box. Just really frustrated now.
  14. Yes i just held the broken wire to touch the area where it came off from. Do you think if i unplug the spin kill switch from the motherboard will work? Of course i won't have any way to control wheel if i lift it.
