New U2 not homing?

Posted · New U2 not homing?

I just opened my Ultimaker 2, and followed all the instructions.

When it tried to home the z axis it creaked and complained because the glass plate was packed underneath the build plate and it couldn't reach the limit switch I assume.

Then when it went to home the print head, the y-axis (forward and back) seemed to home fine, but the x-axis (left and right) just kept grinding. I can't seem to see a limit switch for the x-axis.

Any ideas?

    The left-right switch is in the back left corner, under the top panel. The rear black sliding block is supposed to trigger it. You may just need to tweak the angle of the lever on it, and/or bend the left fan on the print head down a little bit, so that the switch triggers before the head hits the side panel.

    See this thread:

    Did you get the glass out? If not, just turn off power and rotate the Z screw until you can get it out. Then wash your hand.
