How to Fix the WeDo Motor!

This time we have a fix for your WeDo motor!

I bet some of you have faced this problem after using the WeDo motor too often. The wires in the cable get broken by the connector on the motor side after a lot of use and abuse. If this is your problem, then we found your solution. We have found a fantastic step-by-step video for the WeDo motor, also known as the LEGO M-Motor.

First, thanks to Vadim Smilansky in Israel for providing this detailed video tutorial about fixing the broken cable.

If you like the video or if it helps to solve your motor problem, please stop by and say thanks to Vadim because without him we would have to buy a new motor!
Esta vez tenemos un arreglo para el motor del WeDo!

Apostamos que algunos se han enfrentrado a este problema luego de un tiempo al usar el motor del WeDo. Los alambres del cable cerca a la conexión del motor se revientan después de mucho uso y abuso. Si ese es tú problema, te tenemos la solución. Hemos encontrado un video explicando paso a paso todo lo del motor del WeDo, también conocido como motor M de LEGO.

Primero, tenemos que agradecer a Vadim Smilansky en Israel por proveer un video tutorial tan detallado sobre como reparar el cable roto.

Si te gusta el video o si te ayuda a resolver tus problemas con el motor, pasar y saludar a Vadim porque sin su ayuda tendríamos que comprar uno nuevo!
