My UM2  displays the following error message Z screw stuck

However the bill played moves freely by hand but the Um2 is not able to lower the built played even when requested through the advanced menu when I pressed the lower button it just brings the bill plate further up

Can you move it by turning the screw by hand (with printer shut down)?

If yes lift it up by hand and check if the z switch can be actived (you can find it inside the printer underneath the build plate (when it sits at the bottom). At the backside, there is a hole.

The build plate has a screw underneath that goes in that hole to activate the z switch.

You can try to click it with a screw driver

Maybe some plastic is stuck in there

    • "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.
