Bearing Replacement

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited) · Bearing Replacement

Lately, I have been getting a creaking kind of sound coming from my machine. I've narrowed it down to one of the bearings on the rear X axis/shaft, in particular, the bearing on the left of the machine, closest to the rear.

What is involved in replacing one of these bearings, is it just a matter of loosening the pulley/s and sliding the rod out to get to the bearing or am I better off removing the side panel and doing it that way ?

Don't remove the side panel. loosen the pulleys as you explained. Just make sure they are nice and tight when you put it all back.

Sweet. Let me know how the upgrade goes. I'm looking at getting one myself.

Will do, lead time when I ordered was listed at 2-3 weeks so hopefully I get it sooner rather than later
