My Shimano e6100 equipped Merida has barely reached 200km total and started making a clicking/clunking noise. The noise was only apparent when the motor was providing assistance, and noisier as the torque applied to the pedals increased. I shot a video of the issue and during the recording the clicking/clunking gave way to a whirring noise that was actually resisting the pedalling force, as though the motor was acting as a dynamo, sucking power from my legs rather than assisting. I turned the system off and took it to a bike shop for them to look at. After some back and forth, Shimano have agreed to look at the motor even though it is past its 2 year warranty period. Has anyone come across anything similar?
