I was using my KWA G36c today in a scrim it stopped firing; the trigger wouldn’t work, I thought it was the battery but I had just charged it, and plus it was brand new. Anyway I tried it again and it started shooting but then started shooting slower and then stopped again and then next time I tried it made a low noise grinding noise…So I think the Gearbox is messed up. Please advise if this is it because I can’t think of anything else it would be I tried multiple charged batteries and it all did the same thing. Anyway I am past warranty on it and I rather just buy a new gearbox for it if that’s the problem.

Logical thinking normally works the best ;)
Your weapon is not shooting : If no sound or very weak and slow sound_ there is no/very little battery(even new batteries can fail, or maybe the charger didn't charge( not likely since you used different battery's))
Your weapon is not shooting : Still no sound, or shoots a few times ever now and then_ the fuse might be the problem, also the connectors may be loose somewhere.
Your weapon is making weird noises from inside the gun : I know way to little about what's inside an airsoft AEG, but the gearbox may ... nah never mind, leavening it to experts :P

Quote :" it started shooting but then started shooting slower and then stopped again " This goes for the battery problem.
Quote ;" and then next time I tried it made a low noise grinding noise. " I'd agree with you that this looks like a gearbox/motor problem, depending on how the noises sounds, *clank clank*-alike? :P

try a battery you know works, (try it in a friends gun or somthing). check your motor gear, and the gear box, if something broke in there you probably will hear it rattling around inside, you could also take your gearbox apart, I've only taken apart V2 boxes but i am sure you can find a video on V3's online, its not that complicated. while you are in there check all your electrical connections and the contact points in the trigger assembly if you are still having issues with a known good battery.

exorcism it is!  sounds like you lost your spur or sector gear (if one goes, usually the other follows, Piston in tow.)
