Issue with y-axis popping noise and skipping

Postby AlexJTucker » Sat Mar 18, 2017 8:27 pm

I really need some help with this. The printer won't find home or even stat a print correctly. The issue isn't electronic because it happens even when the printer is off. It won't go forward or backward without a skip or a bumping noise like a popping rubber band. It might be a motor. If anyone can help please please do.

Okay, I found the issue. Due to stress from an earlier print the y-axis motor had detached from the spindle responsible for actually moving the extruded. Now I just need to find a way to repair it or get a replacement part for that connection.
