x-axis is making a noise


Recommended Posts

Posted · x-axis is making a noise

I am looking for help with my UM3 extended. When the extruder moves on the x-axis I get a Grrrr sound coming from the corner with the x-axis stepper. After a x/y axis test I show a fail on the x.  I have already checked the belt tention, it was good and I found noting bound up or rubbing. I took off the side, checked the bearing, it is free and smooth. I can turn the stepper by hand easy enough. I can feel the steps of the motor and it does not feel like it is sticking. I looked thru the menue for a way to just move the x-axis stepper but could not find one. 


Now I am looking for more ideas on when I can look next for a fix.
