Hi,

lately i have a grinding sound on the Y-axis. It stops making that sound after 30 minutes. I have read alot of aligning the Y-axis rod, but for the ultimaker 2 there arent alot of topics on it. The only change is that lately i print on 0.2 mm layer height. I tried to tighten de pullies, but it keeps coming back. Anyone have a clue?

    There's a few things you can do;

    - lubricate the axis with some sewing-machine oil.

    - check the alignment of the axis, read how to here;

    - take out the head, and slide an axis manually thru the bearing, to feel if the bearing is not damaged.
