What's up guys! I have a Canadian version Vector. All stock. I run an 11.1v 20c Tenergy lipo. Worked fine until the other night when I test fired it and the fuse blown. Replaced the fuse, blown again. Swapped it with a 30a fuse and now I hear a click but the gun won't cycle. I inspected the motor wires, they seem fine. I'm not sure what is up. I'm new to this tech stuff :-P any help is much appreciated. Thanks.

Never "fix" a blown fuse by replacing it with a higher amperage fuse. Fuses blow for a reason and they're designed to break to prevent further damage to the rest of the airsoft gun.

If you're hearing a click, this typically signifies a jam in the gearbox. If you're within the warranty period, definitely take advantage of your warranty.

Thanks for your reply, any idea why a brand new gear box jam up?

The easiest thing to look for is reversed polarity in the battery connector. The connectors will click together when oriented properly, but it's possible your battery pack's wires were installed into the connector incorrectly. Make sure that the black wire matches up with the black wire and the red wire matches up with the red wire. We've seen this happen before.

With the wires reversed, the motor will attempt to run in reverse. Since this is not possible due to either the bevel gear locking up as intended on the anti-reversal latch or the sector gear getting stopped by the piston, the fuse will blow. Or, in your case with a higher amperage fuse, it will make a clicking sound.

That explanation is very clear but in my case doesn't make sense. They are small tamiya connections. I've used these batteries in many only AEGs without any issues. Can batteries switch polarity on their own? Everything has been straight out of the box from the store. I haven't been splicing wires or anything like that. I will have a closer look at it again. Thanks for your time, any additional information is appreciated. I'll keep you posted.

I found the problem. Bevel gear is absolutely destroyed.
