Gear issues

Postby Zero2Fear on Fri Aug 16, 2013 8:55 am

Hi everyone,

This weekend I saw that, when I opened up my 2012, I put him in single, the gears do not fall back to the same position all the time. Sometimes the gears go in the lower receiver, the other time it stops at the same position that it stops when shooting full auto (gears half up).

Another problem that occures with this situation.. When I pulled the trigger really fast a lot of times, he shoots a "burst/auto" for a sec and then the red light goes blinky blinky. Switching it to safe and back to semi solves the issue.

But still, he keeps on not stopping at the same position...

I've cleaned the gearbox a week ago, checked every gear and lubed correctly.

What can be the issue? The small holes are 100% clean, nothing in them.

Thanks.

//Edit; currently, the gears stay halfway up, once shot in single. Once i shoot in full auto, the gears stay all the way up. No teethless metal in sight..

Double checked before putting it back in.

It works like it should, (one cycle in single shot, ongoing cycles in full auto). Only the "stopping position" is wrong, and sometimes in single, it gives me a burst and then a red light. Back to safe and in single again is a fix for that..

Going to clean the sensors and holes again. Hope that helps.. If anyone has another idea?

It could be your motor is on its way out. Try cleaning the brushes and comutator and see if that helps.

You can clean the holes in the sector gear. If you can't see the holes, you need to open the gearbox or turn the gears by hand (pain in the bottoms). The sensor is on the board in front of the gearbox, near the magwell.

I can tell you what the solution for my problem was.

Motor was rewound but was dirty, needed cleaning. Swapped out the rotor, comm was worn so it had to be replaced as well, including a new rewound. Brushes were replaced aswell.

When I got it back, after half a day of playing, it died. This time it was one of the brushes which failed and was split in half.

Took a bit of time, but PPTW fixed everything for me. Even the 2nd time under warranty! ;)

no ..

the ECU consist of 2 small boards .. the "Sensor" are the two LEDs on the smaller one
that "embraces" the Sector gear.

In the Sector gear are 2 tiny holes. The LEDs are a sender and a receiver for IR-light.

when the IR light from the sender LED reaches the receiver LED via the two tiny holes,
the ECU knows when a turn of the sector is done..

the Switch selector is only to tell the ECU to do Semi or Burst/FA

Clean your motor with DC motor cleaning spray

Model RC car shops should stock it
Disconnect your battery when you do it, just in case

You clean the brushes with sandpaper but be careful not to change the shape of the contact area
You don't go out looking for a job dressed like that do you, on a weekday?
