Hey folks! I just burned the second MOSFET of my Z10. But that time - look: All three capacitors (that is what I think they are) exploded. It happened just during a drive, no acceleration, only rolling out, at the 5th km of this trip. The last 2h before the drive the wheel laid in the cold (1°C / 34 °F). Any idea why that could happen?
Important part first: Here's how I fit replacement power filter capacitors in a KS-14C. It solves the problem of constantly bending the leads when you have to access the batteries, and shortens the distance between the second capacitor and the circuit board, which increases its ability to do its job. I came into possession of a faulty KS-14C from electricunicyclereview's closing, along with a new control board and batteries for it. It would turn on and run, but had very low battery and wouldn't accept a charge. When I opened it up I saw that the power filter capacitors were blown. I
