Matrix 3000 motor not firing

Postby binary-ghost » Fri May 03, 2013 9:41 am

Hey i just got a matrix super reinforced m120 gearbox and a matrix magnum torque 3000 motor and the motor spins just fine outside of the gun, once i place it in the gun and adjust the motor height it just does absolutely nothing.. so i slowly loosen the height little by little and pull the trigger each time.. it will do nothing until it gets loosened alot and eventually spins freely without touching the gears.

I have also tried a different motor and that one works fine. no issues at all. fires perfectly. the magnum motor just doesnt fire when its height is correctly adjusted.

anyone know why this could be?

thank you.

There is a jam in your gearbox. This could be caused by stripped teeth, bad shimming (unless you haven't opened your gearbox before), etc.

Try to refrain from pulling the trigger if the motor is not spinning when in the gearbox. It just creates a lot of resistance and heat, which is not very good for your motor and battery.

just thought of something. i believe my battery may not be putting out enough power for this particular set of tech. Seeing at both the gearbox and motor are essentially "high torque" i believe i may need a higher power battery.

You have high torque gears AND a high torque motor?

its not the motor polarity? seems silly, but I've spent hours tracing wires, looking for bad connections and stuff, and not realizing to check the motor...

This seems to be the best idea so far. If it's not that, I'd say your motor could be messed up.
