z endstop stuck or broken

Recommended Posts

Posted · z endstop stuck or broken

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.

      Through this post I would like to further explain what we are doing, and what you could be doing. 
      Our efforts consist of 2 layers. First; connect medical institutions and hospitals to (local) 3D Printing hubs to help them print parts of which a 3D model already exists. And second, contribute to design the necessary part and then have it printed via a (local) 3D printing hub. Experts are available from within Ultimaker and from within our network of 3D printing experts.
