Question SS 60 esc

Just had my second Silver Series 60 esc die for no known reason. It worked perfectly last use (about 6wks ago). Today it refuses to arm. In spite of not having changed anything, I went over all my connectors and Tx settings. Still nothing. Anybody else had a similar experience? Ideas? Suggestions?

To confirm its the esc and not another problem, take another known good esc and temporarily hook it up to that system. Doesnt matter what size as long as it can handle the voltage. You dont need to run the motor for more than 1/2 sec to see if it works.

Yeah, that's my plan as soon as I get time. All my other ESCs are in planes.
