One of my stepper motors sounded exactly like that when the stepper driver current was set too high. A few seconds later the stepper driver was gone... :sad:

The information you need for checking the stepper drivers / the currents can be found here: http://wiki.ultimaker.com/Electronics_build_guide

I had the same problem once, and I was scared because I think I found a heat sink in my room that looked like one from a stepper driver. After moving the head manually back and forth for a couple of times it seemed to work again. Should still check whether the heat sink was from the stepper driver though, didn't have the time until now.

move the head around by hand and feel if there is some friction. Oiling the rods could help this way.
