Top 5 Causes Why Your Pistol Orbeez Gun Might not be Working!

We have lined up the top causes which might be hindering the smooth working of your Orbi gun.

The orbeez guns have a warranty of one year so if before that you face any problem with working then you can get it replaced. Make sure the battery is charged fully before you start to use it.

If the gun has no issues but is still not working then it might be defective and needs to be replaced.

Below are the five common reasons why your gun may not be shooting.

1- Your Splat Gun wasn’t Cleaned Properly

Now, the top most common issue that happens a lot with these guns is that the nozzle often becomes clogged because of the constant bombardment of gel balls that are likely to get deposited on the nozzle.
You can simply clean the nozzle with something pointed and edgy.

If your Splat Ball gun was used before in a dusty environment then it might have clogged the inside of your gun.

Not to mention, the debris of balls is a major cause of causing the blockage inside of your gun.

Cleaning is the most essential aspect when it comes to the long-lasting and efficient working of your Orbeez gun. A proper cleaning routine can make your guns work uninterruptedly.

The surface and inside of a gel based gun can be cleaned by a soft cloth to wipe away any contamination. You can also use cotton swabs dipped in a cleaning solution.

Once you are done with the cleaning process, your gun is free to go!

2- The Gel-Balls are Outdated


We know the frustration you are having at the moment. We suggest you analyze your gel beads if they are actually old then they might have turned into a hardened mass which makes them harder to eject out of the nozzle.

Once these balls get outdated, they are easily prone to breakage and get dispersed into smaller pieces.

To put it simply, this problem can be resolved once you replace the old gel balls with newer ones.

Moreover, you have to make sure that you soak the balls for a period of 3-4 hours at least otherwise the gel balls might turn into sticky form.

3- Battery and Connector Issues

If your splat R ball gun is not shooting, one possible reason is that the battery is low or dead. Check if your battery is properly fitted otherwise it won’t support your gun.

Apart from this, your battery should be able to produce adequate power otherwise the nozzle won’t be able to eject the gel balls.

The battery connectors must be checked too along with the gearing systems inside it as it maintains the prolonged working of your battery.

Also, make sure there are no obstacles in the way of the barrel and that the gun is not jammed.

4- Issues with Motor Wiring

The Gel bases are fired from a battery-operated toy called a Splat r ball gun. The motor and wire are its two main components.

The wire links the motor to the battery, and the motor is in charge of firing the balls.
A damaged motor or faulty wiring may be to blame for your Splat R Ball Gun’s malfunction.

To start troubleshooting the problem, check the wiring to make sure everything is connected correctly. If the wiring appears to be in good condition, the motor is probably the source of the issue, and you will need to replace it.

If you have tried to remedy everything above and the splat is severely damaged, it has to be replaced. Splat R Balls are widely available.

5- Orbi Gun needs to be Pressurized

The Orbi blaster gun needs an optimum pressure to exert a force for continuous firing and if you don’t apply enough pressure then the balls won’t be able to escape the gun.

The pressure forces the balls to get pushed out of the nozzles and it helps them pave their way.
