Poll on failed Stator vs. Rotor Magnet Condition
I thought it might be interesting to find out how many of you that experienced a failed stator (burned or otherwise failed) found problems with rotor magnets coexistent with the failure.
I am wondering if possibly loose magnets might actually be a root cause of premature stator failure either because the stator gets hotter with the magnets being shifted or because the loose magnet shifted enough to make contact with the stator and shatter the magnet(s).
I did not vote because my stator did not fail yet but I discovered a loose magnet and began to wonder if I am preempting a failure by proactive magnet repair
