Hi. I have a new Emove cruiser with only 39 miles on it. I was riding along a smooth dirt road when I hear/feel a thump thump coming from the rear wheel/motor and it became very difficult to roll. Soon it wouldnt roll at all and the power wouldnt turn the wheel. I could barely rotate the wheel by hand. later i looked inside the motor. all is clean and dry and no dirt/dust. the magnets things all look fine and wires look connected. it was fully charged also. but now it won't go at all. WHY? also why dont they put a plug in disconnect at the axel for the power cord? HELP
