z endstop stuck or broken

Recommended Posts

hello Doctor,

I hava an error message on an Ultimaker 2 saying : "z endstop stuck or broken" and that i shhould contact ultimaker support.

i started having problems last week, 3 prints in a row skiped a layer and ended up like a ball of hairs.

also started to make weird bang noises where i couldnd define where it came from, the bed falling down a few layers in middle of a print made me think of the Zaxis, i could hear like sand noise in the 2 big bars on z, so i opened from Under and cleaned them, also the two big ballbearing z.

i wiggled the bed to rebuild it the right way, hoping it would work.

That's when i got the error message "endstop stuck/broke" and it makes terrible noises.

I tested the endstop throught a circuit with a led, and the led goes on and off no problem.

could it be the board ?

I have a few clients waiting for their orders, please help me quickly.

    • "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.
