Change X/Y-Stepper on UM3ext

Hi to all again..


Short question:


As my ultimaker makes strange klicking noises in both stepper motors I don´´ t want to find out what happens if one gets blocked. So I want to change both (bearings and stepper motor). Trying to find a suitable replacement (original) I could not find anything for the UM3 Ext.


So I made some research and came to this stepper-motor: https://www.amazon.de/STEPPERONLINE-Schrittmotor-Bipolar-42x60mm-DRUCKER/dp/B00PNEQUZ2/ref=pd_bxgy_2/257-8638925-5617602?_encoding=UTF8&pd_rd_i=B00PNEQUZ2&pd_rd_r=b842af7f-b5ea-4759-89ee-21af0862f3ad&pd_rd_w=2a5tH&pd_rd_wg=iVUNH&pf_rd_p=6aed2014-4dbf-49b4-8c75-10cdc6199eef&pf_rd_r=XDPA55BCP002PFXXDJX8&psc=1&refRID=XDPA55BCP002PFXXDJX8


Could this be a suitable replacement, or does it draw too much (or too low) energy (Ampere/Voltage) for the PCB-Board of the UM3.

If not maybe someone does have a link to a stepper-motor that can be actually used for a replacement and would not be more week... --> please no hint´s to resellers as they would not sell anythin like this. I have tried it already.. They sell other parts but not this one.

    Great Tomahawk_101,


    somehow I could not find it there... it only displayed the motor for the um3.. ( not the extd. version and there the cable for the ext. is too short)..


    Therefore the thread is closed.

    Hi Daniel,


    When the stepper "motors" make a clicking sound, this tell us that the stepper stalls and cannot do it's next step!

    There is two reasons for this, too high friction in your gantry system, or too lo current setting for your stepper motor driver circuit!  Thees stepper motors is one of the best "electric mechanic" device ever made, they just go on and go on...
