Strange sound while printing


Recommended Posts

Posted · Strange sound while printing

While on a long print, >6h a strange sound started to show up.

If I pause print and wait a minute then start up again it stops but then start up again after a minute or two.

It sounds like its coming from bellow but its hard to determine exactly.

I recorded a video of it .. View My Video

Any ideas ?

Than you..

    It sounds as if the feeder is skipping.

    Make an ear trumpet out of a sheet of paper, and try to localize the source of the sound.

    Is the feeder snapping back at the moment of the click?
