Sooo.... I picked up two magnas for pretty cheap to have for people who come play paintball and borrow my gear. After taking one apart, the wires on the motor came off. No biggie, right? So I had them re-soldered in the same order back to the contacts of what I believe to be a capacitor. The motor still would not turn. I disassembled the motor and found a small copper piece out of place. After surgery-like procedures because they were SOO SMALL, I reassembled the motor and hopper only to find that the drive wheel spins clockwise instead of counterclockwise... Effectively doing (as Chris Farley would say) JACK SQUAT. Therefore, any help would be appreciated.

If it spins backwards, just swap the wires on the motor.

So cut and re-solder them again? I have two motors, and I soldered the wires on the broken one like I found them on the one that works. White on the left, grey on the right..

If it's spinning the wrong way, then re-soldering the wires on the opposite contacts of the motor is the only solution.
