Z-Axis won't move downwards

Post by ChaboCC » Mon Jun 11, 2018 2:18 am

Hey guys, does anybody have an idea?

My Z-Axis-Motors are moving upwards without problems, but when turning downwards, they make a horrible sound and won't turn. I removed all of the rods, so it's just the motors left. Also, I tried plugging the motors as Y-Axis, there they work without a problem. Is my board broken or is there a way to fix this on my own?

Thanks in advance!!

I sugest to check the order of the wires in the plug.
On the forum I help to use the rod, I don't give fish.

Hi,
Have you done the A4988 test?
Switch A4988 of Z-axis with X-axis.
