x & y axis seized

Z moves up and down just fine on my UMO+, but the X & Y axis seem to have seized up. Can't move them manually or with the controller. Anybody ever seen this before? It was just working fine

Are both your X and Y motors seized up, or just one?

Can you try unplugging them from the electronics board and see how they move by hand when not plugged in?

Check the bearings in the axes. It could be as simple as dropping a couple of drops of mineral oil on the axes, and gently working that into the bearings.

ok. so yes both are seized up. by can't move them manually, i meant by hand, and i just checked and that does not change when unplugged. i can try to lube them, but i don't think that's going to help as they did not get worse over time. they went from smooth to stopped. it's not that they move a little, sluggishly. they don't move at all
