UM2 : Z swtich broken?


Recommended Posts

Posted · UM2 : Z swtich broken?

My UM2 Z axis makes loud sound when it starts to print. And it just stops. The screen shows the message. What is wrong with it? Which part I should check?

    The Z end stop switch. It's located on the bottom of the printer (little black switch next to the Z motor).

    You have to flip the printer to its side to look at this.

    Check how it looks, if it looks good maybe the connection is loose, check the electronic board also underneath.

    I you don't have it look at the build manual for the UM2:

    Could also be that you have something stuck under the build plate.

    Normally a screw at the end of the buildplate hits a switch a the back of the machine.

        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.
