M4A1 Blown Fuse

AHHH! I have the weirdest problem. I have a relatively new -stock- M4A1. When I first got it, I pulled the trigger once and the fuse blew. The next day, i bought new fuses, put one in and it gave me around 3 shots, and then it sparked/blew. Whats the problem? I have 15Amp fuses and use a 8.4 600mAh battery.

The problem is that you are grounding out somewhere. One of your wires may be pinched. You could have cuts in your wires which I have seen personally. Depending on your knowledge of gearboxes, I would take it apart and trace the wires looking for anything that could be causing it to ground out. It also doesn't hurt to have spare parts around you so can eliminate thinks like your motor causing the problem. Hope this helps.

Yeah thanks, That helped. The Connecters for the fuse was touching another metal part of the same wire that caused it to short out. I insulated the wires with electrical tape and now it shoots fine.
