Hi and welcome,

 

Looks like the endstops are not triggered when homing.

 

Check if they are activated (you can do this by sliding the head with your hand in both directions (x and y) and reaching the home position.

 

You should hear a clicking sound, if not then check why it's not touched

    if it's the y switch, it should be activated by the axle. You can pop it out of the sliders and move it a bit so it touches. 

     

    Don't move it to far or it might touch the z rods

    if you move the head in the front right, 

     

    Prepare to click the y switch with your finger (or a screw driver)

     

    Then home the head (using the controller). 

     

    Before it reaches the home position click the switch it should stop going to the y direction.

    Done tried that, no response from the y switch.  The x switch works.

    And did it happen suddenly or did you for example take the feeder motor away? (could be a pinched cable).

     

    You can check connections on the mainboard also.

     

    If everything seems good then you should probably replace the endswitch (contact your reseller)

    Ok will look.  It just suddenly jumped, that was it.  The spool feed got jammed.  Maybe that what affected it.

     

    I will contact my reseller.

    And you took the feeder motor off? Check for cables that go behind that motor

      • S-Line Firmware 8.3.0 was released Nov. 20th on the "Latest" firmware branch.
        (Sorry, was out of office when this released)

        This update is for...
        All UltiMaker S series  
        New features
         
        Temperature status. During print preparation, the temperatures of the print cores and build plate will be shown on the display. This gives a better indication of the progress and remaining wait time. Save log files in paused state. It is now possible to save the printer's log files to USB if the currently active print job is paused. Previously, the Dump logs to USB option was only enabled if the printer was in idle state. Confirm print removal via Digital Factory. If the printer is connected to the Digital Factory, it is now possible to confirm the removal of a previous print job via the Digital Factory interface. This is useful in situations where the build plate is clear, but the operator forgot to select Confirm removal on the printer’s display. Visit this page for more information about this feature.

      • Ultimaker Cura 5.6 stable released
        Cura now supports Method series printers!
         
        A year after the merger of Ultimaker and MakerBotQQ, we have unlocked the ability for users of our Method series printers to slice files using UltiMaker Cura. As of this release, users can find profiles for our Method and Method XL printers, as well as material profiles for ABS-R, ABS-CF, and RapidRinse. Meaning it’s now possible to use either Cura or the existing cloud-slicing software CloudPrint when printing with these printers or materials
