Post subject:  269 and 393 Motors Clicking

I am having problems with my 269 and 393 motors just sitting and clicking. Some of them will eventually work but others just sit and click. I took a 393 apart down to the electric motor and the gear just sits and ticks back and forth. I really don't think this is a programming thing as I have multiple motors doing the same thing. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

You have to help us to help you...
Q1: Are they used with VEX Cortex?
Q2: Are they connected to a VEX motor controller or directly to the CPU?
Q3: Could you post the code?
Q4: Have you tried real simple code to just run the motor?
Q5: Have you connected the motor directly to a battery?
Q6: Have you tried another battery?
Q7: Had these ever worked for you in the past?
Q8: What power level are you running the motor at?
Q9: Do they have encoders attached?
Q10: Are there any modifications made to the motors?

You are using a Natural Language motor command, try the regular command...
Code:
task main()
{
   while(1==1)
   {
      if(SensorValue[S1]==1)
      {
         motor[Fire] = 127;
      }
      else
      {
         motor[Fire] = 0;
      }
   }
}
