do? does it just say the test failed? This is sort of hard to debug. There's a lot of unknowns.
Hello Paul the motor is 3 phase motor rated for 230v or 380v. I'm using the motor in 230v configuration and it has 8.4A nominal current and the power factor of 0.78.

When I run the pi test I can hear tick tick noise but the motor just remains blocked.. It does not rotates like in many videos that I have seen on thingstodo' channel during the pi test..

Would you please send me a code for pwm testing... Like driving the motor in open loop to be sure that pwm are OK?
