Hi, welcome to WWN. We're going to need some more information. If you could take a video of what is happening and upload it somewhere, that would help.

You can't upload the video here. We don't have the space. Upload it to YouTube or Google Drive or whatever works for you and link it here.

Edit: You also could try uploading it to the Discord: https://discord.gg/WWSuxgBF2g

Thanks for the video. I wasn't sure how it worked. It looks like it basically pushes the water out by squeezing the tubing.

I'm assuming that you tested it with the magazine full of water. I didn't see the magazine in the video, but the video does show that motor works.

It's possible that there's a clog in the flow path somewhere preventing water from flowing. You could try disassembling each component and pouring water through it to see whether there's a clog.

A hole in the tubing or internal components could also prevent the pump from building up suction to make the water flow. If you try pouring water though each component, you might find a leak. Usually leaks are found by pressurizing blasters with air, but you can't do that here, so I'm not sure if there's a better approach.

Check back in a few days as others trickle in here. They might have some better ideas.
