My UM3 is making a strange noise!

Hi,

since yesterday my UM3 has started to make this annoying noise.
It only happens when its printing on the X axis on the right side on the bed.
The prints are not affected but its keeping me up at night.

 

Anyone any idea?

 

Kind regards
Sander

    Hi

    could be a loose pulley on one of the axles. Check if there is a play according to the instructions on the UM website. There you find also instructions how to fix it, which it is easy.

    I found it with help from a facebook group. Was one of the clips that hold the belt and the rod. it was open for about 0.5mm and shaved across one of the stabilser rods of the bed. Its gone now!
