Front-Left Grinding Noise

Recommended Posts

Sometimes, not always, when my printer moves to the front-left corner, it seems like the motor(s) keep trying to move the print head beyond where they are supposed to.

When I manually move the print head, I can hear that the end-stops are being properly engaged.

Does anyone know how to fix this? It sounds awful!

Thank you!

I double-checked and all endstops are correct based upon re-running the first run wizard.

It is the Y-Axis motor (the one in the back-left corner of the printer) that seems to want to keep going when the endstop is hit.

I've verified that the endstop is being properly hit.

Also, it does not do it every time, just about 1/2 of the time.

Any ideas why my Y-Axis motor is a bit crazy?
