Bed Leveling Issue using the Push Rotate button

Posted · Bed Leveling Issue using the Push Rotate button

Recently ive started to have 2 problems with my Ultimaker 2+ and im wondering if they are linked

I was having issues with a print where at random points in the print it would either fail or produce a weak point in the print, it looked like it was skipping a layer or jumping up 2.

At this point I decided to clean up the machine and re level the bed. I started to run through the process as normal using the rotate button to move the bed into position. It went a bit too high at first so i turned the button the other way but instead of lowering the bed it went up again, it went down eventually but then it was just going up and down randomly as i span it in the down direction. It seems like the button was not sending the correct signal to the board to control the bed height. it made me wonder if this is also the cause of the failing prints ?

Has any one seen this before? Any ideas what I can try to do to fix it ?

Cheers

Andy
