Looking for a solution

Postby Friend » Wed Jul 02, 2008 7:40 am

I own few electric assisted rickshaws. The engines I use on them are crystalite hub engines. Unfortunately some of them broke down.

Could anyone recommend me someone who can help me with the repair of these engines and its controllers?

Any advice is most appreciated.

Hi

Probably the best place to find information about the Crystallite motors and controllers is on the Endless Sphere site. If you take a look at the sticky threads here, for example: http://endless-sphere.com/forums/viewforum.php?f=2

Just out of curiosity, are you based in the UK?

Is it actually the motors that are broken? They're pretty tough units from what I've heard. Usually it's the electronic controllers that go, and these can be replaced. Unless it's a simple problem it's often uneconomical to repair the controllers because of the time it takes to repair them.

One of the members here (PHEV) has a lot of experience with the Crystallite systems and might be able to give you more advice when he drops in.

Malcolm,

Mainly the problem is the sencors. I assume its easy to replace them but I dont know where to look for sencors in the UK! And sometimes the copper can get defaults!

With the last engines, I have problem with their magnets, somehow the magnets are faulty. Obviously sometimes the controler breaks down as well.

I have an option to send them back to China for repair but this is not very feasable because of the time involved and also you cant rely on them. In the past I sent them some engines and the engines came back still not working... I am just trying to find a contact who I can esatblish a long term business relationship who can look after my engines.

I'd recommend sending a private message to Steve. You can find him by doing a search for posts my member PHEV. He's a nice bloke and if he can't help you himself he may be able to put you in touch with someone who can.

Cheers
Malcolm

Hi guys,
I'll have a look in the lucky bag and see if I have any sensors knocking around tomorrow.
If not, then Farnell and RS components both stock them I believe.

How many do you need?
