Humming noise and strange behaviour during homing

Recommended Posts

Posted · Humming noise and strange behaviour during homing

Hello, ladies and gentlemen!
I'm not really new to 3D printing but until now I've been a silent reader.
At the moment I have a problem, which I hope I can solve with your swarm knowledge:

Recently, my Ultimaker 3 seems to have a problem with the limit switch. When it wants to zero the axes, it moves backwards normally and also reaches the limit switch. However, there is only a short buzzing noise afterwards and an error message is displayed that the end stop has not been reached.
As already mentioned, this is not true. In the diagnostic window, I can press all the end stops and they also appear. If I press the switch manually during homing, the same thing happens: The print head stops immediately and there is a short buzzing noise.
I have even installed a new limit switch and tested it by hand - with the same result. In the meantime, I was so desperate that I replaced the main board and did a factory reset. Unfortunately, all this did nothing.
Maybe someone has another idea?
Many thanks in advance!

      • S-Line Firmware 8.3.0 was released Nov. 20th on the "Latest" firmware branch.
        (Sorry, was out of office when this released)

        This update is for...
        All UltiMaker S series  
        New features
        Temperature status. During print preparation, the temperatures of the print cores and build plate will be shown on the display. This gives a better indication of the progress and remaining wait time. Save log files in paused state. It is now possible to save the printer's log files to USB if the currently active print job is paused. Previously, the Dump logs to USB option was only enabled if the printer was in idle state. Confirm print removal via Digital Factory. If the printer is connected to the Digital Factory, it is now possible to confirm the removal of a previous print job via the Digital Factory interface. This is useful in situations where the build plate is clear, but the operator forgot to select Confirm removal on the printer’s display. Visit this page for more information about this feature.

      • Ultimaker Cura 5.6 stable released
        Cura now supports Method series printers!
        A year after the merger of Ultimaker and MakerBotQQ, we have unlocked the ability for users of our Method series printers to slice files using UltiMaker Cura. As of this release, users can find profiles for our Method and Method XL printers, as well as material profiles for ABS-R, ABS-CF, and RapidRinse. Meaning it’s now possible to use either Cura or the existing cloud-slicing software CloudPrint when printing with these printers or materials
