Z axis won't go up

Post by drtdray » Sat Jun 08, 2019 9:29 am

So I had quite a bit of problems with the printer, but I solved most of them except this one I can't figure out. I start a test print and everything looked fine until the extruder wasn't able to lift up any higher and remained at the same level.

I can get my z axis to home just fine, there is no issue with both motors lowering the axis. However the z motor on the left side doesn't do anything when I try to move it upward. The right z motor turns on and lifts the axis a little bit, but then stops and starts to grind because the other motor isn't doing anything.

Any ideas?

Hi, You can 1. Check if the left and right axes are at the same height;
2. Check if the left and right shafts are bent;
3. Detect the driving board voltage (0.8-1.2V);
4. Is the screwed brass nut too tight? It can be adjusted and then tightened.
I hope these can help you.
