    Tonight I put my gun back together the first time. I popped my motor back in an put the plate on the bottom. (I have a G&G CM16 so it has an adjustable motor plate) After I put the motor back in I plugged my battery in to see if it would work. I pulled the trigger and this odd whiny noise, stupidly I pressed again and again until it just stopped. I don't think anything in the gearbox was damaged besides the wiring, which is what my dad thinks. Any ideas to what the problem would be? Please help, I'm getting extremely worried as it was a bit pricy with a few external upgrades. :confused:

    Did you hook the motor up correctly? Black to black red to red?

    Yes, I even took it out of the cage to try to see if it would turn, but it didn't.

    I dont really understand what you mean by "whiny" but what i get from it is that the pinion gear on the motor isnt connecting with the gearbox... Push it further into the gearbox by tightening the large flat head on the bottom of the pistol grip

    What good is that if the motor won't turn? I think it has to do with the wiring or the motor it self. Also, the motor seemed to be pretty resistant to going farther up. I felt a little weird putting the motor plate back on because it seemed very tight.

    Yeah motor isn't adjusted properly was too low, I'd replace if you can't get it to work.

    But I didn't have that problem before, it was perfectly fine and then when I took it apart then put it back together I get this. Could I of have done something wrong?

    Combat machines have fuses? Mine didn't, but that's good I suppose easy enough fix.

    Well... Even if the fuse blew.... (didn't even know they had fuses :p)... Your motor should still turn... Right?

    No the fuse blowing stops all power from getting to the motor.

    Now that you replaced the fuse or did watever with it. You might have to check your wiring again. You said it was tight to put the cap on? The red and black wiring should be flushed to one side of the pistol grip i believe the black wire. Once you insert the motor the motor should move and be loose with nothing catching it . Putng the cap on the motor should be "springy".
