Thanks in advance, oh and it makes a thud sound when you pull the trigger as if something is stuck!

that screw is the motor height adjustment

One of the screws on the bottom of your pistol grip will adjust the motor engagement depth. If you've moved this then you may well be shredding your bevel gear now (it'll make a blatant screechy/grindy noise).
By doing what you mentioned you can also mis-align the teeth so they lock mid-cycle (which might account for the thuddy noise if the piston is not propelling bb's). You need to open her up and 'release' the locked teeth.
Either way you should give her to someone that has set up gears before and knows what to look for so you don't wreck it any further.
The ideal engagement depth for the motor is at the point where it makes as little noise as possible, as this is where the gears are seated properly and minimal friction(too far)/minimal grinding (too loose) is occurring.

I think it is more likely what Black said, because it does sound as if there are cogs inside that are bashing into each other when they are trying to turn, I'll just wait for the tech guy to have a look at it for me!
Just a word of advice for the future. If you need to look at or change a motor on an M4/M16 variant, undo the two small screws under the pistol grip, rather than the big adjuster, as that way the base plate will drop out and you can see or remove the motor, after disconnecting the wires. And don't lose the small metal disc that sits in the base plate, as that's the bit that stops the adjuster screw from contacting the spindle of the motor and really mucking things up.
It does sound as if you have either wound in the big screw too far, thereby jambing the drive cog into the gears, or have it too loose, in which case it will spin but not drive the gearbox. From you description, my guess would be "too tight" as I've made my M4 make that sort of sound when adjusting the motor for the best fit. Hopefully nothing has broken, otherwise it could be expensive.
