Hi. Im having trouble identifying the issue with my motor, but it just wont cycle. The motor height seems to always be off, so either its too high or too low. Video https://youtu.be/UCkJBymqskI

 

Does anyone know the cause and possibly a way to fix it?

have you tried re-shimming the gearbox? You may have set the spur gear too low

Sounds like my g3 did when it was locking up gear mine was one too many shims on the pinion gear top not enough on bottom so gears were either scraping tight or complete lock half way through a cycle

I'd say it's deffo sticky gears.or maybe worm motor bushings.

It seems to work better after you swapped over the pistol grip. Did the problems start with the swap to the tan one? If so, it might be that the grip isn't compatible with the lower receiver. As regards the stopping in the last video, that sounded more like a drained battery than anything else. Try charging the battery and then reset the motor height in the black grip so that you get the smoothest noise from the motor whilst in full auto mode without the top receiver fitted. This is usually about one full turn back from where the motor makes a skreechy sound on its highest setting in the grip and still turns.
