Motor perpetually stalled

We have been having issues with our v5 motors where if they stall, they don’t unstall. Also, the motors no longer move easily in one of the directions when turned by hand. If we give power to the motor, we just hear a faint beep. We are using Pros 3 btw if you are wondering, though I don’t think that matters. The ports continue to function normally as well.

How long do you stall the motors for ? 10 seconds ? 10 minutes ?

No more than 10 seconds. Probably around 5.

Kailas, some people on the discord said it could be a seized up gearbox, but we should open it tomorrow and check the inside and perform some tests.

a few seconds should not be a problem, unless the motor is already quite hot.
