Does anyone know where to buy just the DC motor part of a V5 motor? The part # is FS28-KD/23125/DV or it is SMC D247x11 as printed on the DC motor inside the V5 motor. That motor is not soldered to the board in the v5 motor and easily pops on and off the board in the V5 motor so it would not be hard to replace it. That is if you could find where to buy it. We are seeing about a 10% failure rate of that DC motor with the busing getting lose inside the motor. (you can hear them rattle around in the DC motor or the motor locks when the busing get stuck in the motor). We are past the warranty on the V5 motor from VEX and looking to save some money fixing the 4 out of the 30 motors we have that failed in the last year.
Here is a motor that is close but it is not the right one
it has 9 teeth instead of the needed 10 teeth for example and the torque and speed might be off
This company looks like they probably made it for the V5 but that exact part is not listed and I don’t think they sell direct to the public.
So if anyone has found out where to buy this DC motor please list it. Or better yet VEX should sell just the DC motor as a repair item like they sold the gears for the 393 motors. These DC motors are failing just a fast as the gears did. It doesn’t mater to me if the motors are leagle or not after the fix at this point. I just rather spend $10 instead of $200 fixing the 4 of them.
Thanks for the help.
