When I inspected I found that the motor lash was cranked too tight. I cranked if off all the way then tightened it in increments till gears were meshing properly. My advice would be to back motor lash all the way and see if the motor activates properly. Atleast that would eleminate the fire selectior, trigger mechanism and the motor as the problem. Tighten it in a little bit at a time see if it fixes the problem. Hope this helps a little
This reads exactly like what's happening. I press the trigger and there's a slight movement in the pistol grip, sounds like the motor's not really moving.

Question then, how do I back the motor lash?
