Little hint: Squeeking noise when using the UM3 without the spool holder


Recommended Posts

Posted · Little hint: Squeeking noise when using the UM3 without the spool holder

I recently removed the spool holder and then my UM3 startet to make a very nasty noise when the head moved from front to back (left to right and Z were ok).

After I've checked all screws, axles, cleaned & lubricated everything (originally to find another issue), I realized that I still had the NFC cable blend on the UM3. As the spool holder is not mounted, this little beast resonated with the print head movement -.- After removing it, it's quiet again :)

Just a little hint if anybody who has not mounted the spool holder has the same issue.
