Limt Switch


Recommended Posts

Ive had my UM3 for about 3 months now, today I noticed that upon homing when moving in the y direction, the head would hit the edge a couple times before it registered it was their. Upon further research I find the diagnostics tab and check the limit switches to see if they are registering properly. This is where my question begins. When moving the head manually I notice that the y switch will activate briefly and then deactivate while the limit switch is still in contact. Sometimes it will not even register that it is in contact also. 

Any idea's or solutions would be wonderful

    thanks guys for the response. After adjusting it a little I have not had the same results but it still does not recognize the switch is pressed some of the times. I the problem persists in the future I will invest in a new switch.
