Z axis stepper motor slip

Recommended Posts

I couldn't adjust my z axis and I believe it is the problem with the stepper motor.

How does it happens?

- A week a ago, when I was trying to print an object overnight, I left a roll of tape under the printing bed ( i know its silly..), and when I came back the other day, I saw the printing bed is stopped by the tape and cannot lower it self. The job could not be finished and there is a big lump of filament stuck on the top of the printing object....

Now my z axis can be lowered when I use the bed leveling wizard, but i can't raise it...

please help... thanks

here is a video of the problem//
