My Currie brush type 400Watt/24 volt motor turns really hard by hand. Is this normal? I was doing some maintenance on the scooter and noticed the problem. The motor also howls pretty loud when running. It is an older scooter with some serious miles on it (2nd set of batteries are worn out...tires are getting really smooth. My riding season is going to be over soon and now is the time to replace the motor if it is bad.
OK, it feels like the motor is bad... I have to use pliers to turn it sometimes...not plugged in.Thanks.
