How rare is a hall throttle failure

After wiring in a new controller, everything worked--low and high

speed and reverse.  Then, after using cable ties to tie everything down,

it quit---no low or high speed or reverse.

Turns out it is a faulty hall throttle. (brand new)

I thought they were pretty much bullet- proof.

Anyone else have one fail?

Hall effect throttle failures are not very common however they do happen occasionally. Unless a hall effect throttle is incorrectly wired to begin with then it will usually last a long time. Most of the hall effect throttles that we have seen which have stopped working have wires that are internally broken, or have broken or failed connections to the hall effect chip inside the throttle rather than the hall effect chip inside of them failing.
