Problem with motor or sensor

Recommended Posts

Hello,

Today I received and tested the ultimaker 2.

Firstly I got the leaning/shifting issue as discrebed here : http://support.3dverkstan.se/article/23-a-visual-ultimaker-troubleshooting-guide#leaning

So I removed the cover on the left and tightened the screws (all of them were already tightened by the way)

Then I put everything on place (encountered some difficulties the first time).

Now I have a second big problem, the print head can no longer go to the Y home position, when he attempt to go to the initial position it just tries to force the way and makes a very unpleasant sound.

I noticed the stop sensor was at the wrong side, then I put it on the good side but I still have this issue.

I here the"click" sound of the sensor though.

I removed the cover and checked if the wires of the sensor were not damaged, checked if it was plugged correctly to the board.

I do not know what to do, can you help me ?!

Thank you!

    • "Back To The Future" using Generative Design & Investment Casting
      Designing for light-weight parts is becoming more important, and I’m a firm believer in the need to produce lighter weight, less over-engineered parts for the future. This is for sustainability reasons because we need to be using less raw materials and, in things like transportation, it impacts the energy usage of the product during it’s service life.
