Strange noise from Robert's feeder....

Recommended Posts

Posted · Strange noise from Robert's feeder....

Hey guys,

As from today my feeder makes a weird noise....

I made a small clip for you all because I cannot describe this kind of noise. :p

Anybody who knows what the reason for this "grinding noise" is?

Looks like your drivebolt is a bit dirty, there seems to be filament in between the teeth.

Sounds like there is stress on a certain part.

My first guess is your filament is grinding against something, or your wheel/bearing can't move freely.

Good luck!

Did it run successfully so far?

Hey Sander :)

Yep it's running great the past few days. :D

Except for the weird noise...

With "drive bolt" do you mean the knurled wheel of what exactly do you mean?

thanks

Yeah, the knurled wheel!

Doesn't look terrible, but if it were my printer I would probably clean it by now.

Ok will do, I got a spare knurled wheel but the screw in the original knurled wheel is stuck in it :(

no clue how to get that screw out of it :D

You don't have to remove it, if you remove the filament and gain some access you could probably clean it with a cloth or your fingers.

I know, but I wanted to test if the spare knurled wheel made the same noise as my original one but the screw got stuck in the stepper motor :(

Unclip the feeder. Check the bearng moves free and isn't 'stuck'. Also check the screw it's touching the um2 box (the one that holds the bearing) because maybe the sound it's just something shaking with the feeder vibrations.

Could be the grommet vibrating. I'm not a big fan of the grommet version. I'm going to switch my printers back to the old way with a piece of bowden instead.

Not saying that's absolutely what it is, but I've heard the same noise on one of my printers after I "upgraded" to the grommet version. I've also had filament slip off the bearing which never happened in my earlier versions.

Mine has had the same noise. I depends on the speed its extruding. But I also thinks its from the grommet
