Pre-assembled x-axis sliding block won't move on its rod

Recommended Posts

Posted · Pre-assembled x-axis sliding block won't move on its rod

So i just unboxed my pre-assembled ultimaker 2 days ago and go to set it up, when i notice that the x axis DOESN'T MOVE. the y and z are fine and so is everything else that i can see. however it seems that the rear x-axis sliding block is stuck on something.

I can't see anything wrong without taking it apart and I am not great with complex machinery so i wan't to avoid that as much as possible.

I was thinking it could be a lack of lubrication or maybe it is rubbing something that's hidden.

HELP!!

With it powered off, can you slide the blocks by hand? What position is the head stuck in?
