Answered: Excessive grease ?

According to my teacher , too much grease would spoil the motors . We just got this from our supplier a few days ago and this was 1 of the many motors that was leaking grease. We order 20 or 30 269 and the same amount of 369. I would say half of them are in this condition. Would the excess grease short circuit the motor? My teacher , being good at electronics said that this would short circuit the motor. I would like some advise from vex team . The yellow ovals are where the grease are leaking from.

No, the grease will not spoil the motors. Some of the motors leak a bit during shipping. We recommend you wipe away the excess grease with a paper towel.

This will not affect motor performance.


Okay , will do it later . Thanks !
