Help needed! Engine not working

Post by Asian Thunder » Tue Sep 23, 2014 7:35 pm

Hey so I have owned my pstar for a while now and i have run into a problem with it. Currently I have tried variations of everything, lubing the nozzle, lubing the poppet and I cannot seem to fix the problem of it misfeeding. It doesn't cycle rounds AT ALL and I have no idea why. It seems to me that the nozzle is not coming back far enough and I have no clue how to repair it. If anyone in the area can help me with it I will be more than willing to compensate you for your time and your expertise.

Contact me over text at 651-283-2890 any help is appreciated.

is there any scratching on the nozzle or the inside of the hop up? if there is, then your engine isn't aligned properly and that could be causing issues.

the other option is it could be your solenoid valve is actually going bad.

I can't really get more in depth ATM because I'm on my phone so I can't write a whole book of an answer on how to trouble shoot it. Polarstar has lots of good information on their website for it and their people on facebook are very very helpful.

If your battery is very low, it can cause strange malfunctions.

I once had mine do the exact thing you're describing. I recharged my battery and everything was fine.
