My kingsong has a strange noise in the wheel...

I can ride it, but i dont now what is this...

 

I made a video...

I open the wheel... clean everything and dont see nothing wrong, but the noise is the same...

 

Can some one help?

could it be some bearing? I would reach for the supplier IMO but maybe a more knowledgeable person might be more into this. I come to this suggestion as it is random noise with no load if I understood correctly, while there are no apparent scratches on the motor so it should be between the shaft and the motor's moving parts (assuming you checked it's not rubbing to anywhere with the chassis before you opened). I never opened a motor, but I read here that it's a very delicate process. the continuous noise I guess it's normal after some use as bearings loosen a bit and the magnetism generates a vibration (i.e. sound), at least that's what I can picture it comes from and all electric motors and EUCs tend to get that continuous motor sound slightly louder after some use.

Can you identify that noise at the same position of the motor as it was not clear on the video?

Did you hear the noise after disassembling? I just notice a slight clean area on the tire that might be rubbing somewhere on the chassisimage.png.427ea3b207d994d9e80f234c95241154.png

To be sure what makes this sound you have to remove both sides of motor cover (this black plate). The bearing are in the motor cover and you can move them around to check if the bearing are the reason of this sound. You should look inside the motor if there is any part of wires or magnetic coils can scratch the cover.

This is picture inside the motor of KS16. It looks similar.

The bearings are well sealed from dirt from outside.  However, It is possible to damage the seals when you get something wrapped hard around the axle.  I found this out when I ran over my leash and it wrapped around both axles. Once the seal is damaged, dust and grit can enter the bearing and start to wear it out.  I pulled both my bearing out of the shells, removed all four seals and used a can of brake cleaner to remove all the old grease and grime.  I will repack them and put the good seals on the outside, or buy some new ones.

BUT. Your sound is not like mine.  Mine was more a gritty feel when turning the wheel by hand. I honestly can't think what that sound is.

this is what I would want to know if it were my wheel:

1. Does it happen when the wheel is in the same position each time?

2. If 1. Is true, does it happen every time?

3. Does it happen at slow rotation or fast rotation, or both?

4. If one version of 3. Is true, does it happen every time?

5. Does it happen, now that you have removed the wheel form the shell?

I try that... didnt hear any sound when removed the wheel... but i dont see any place where the wheel is scratching... the scratchs that it has, are old from a previous problem solved (lose screws in the motor shell)

 

 

 

 

 

 

I think there is something inside the motor shell... Someone can sugest a video or give me especial advices to do that?

 

Thanks for all

Hello

 

Problem solved. No need to open the wheel... i clean everything and the noise stoped.

 

thanks to all.

What did you clean and how? Mine is making a similar noise. Was it dirt or trash around the axel?
