Clicking sound when moving in X-axis

Postby Anown » Tue Jun 22, 2021 7:30 am

Hello all

I come here with a problem that has been accuring since my last print.
A annoying clicking sound starts making noise whenever the printer moves in the + X-axis, could it be that the bearing has failed?
You can find a clip of it in the URL below.

Does anyone know how to fix this issue?


Kind regards
Jeremy

Based on the video that you provided it sounds like one of your drive motor couplers is broken or damaged. If you notice the sound mainly in the X-axis I would suggest inspecting and replacing the X-axis coupler.

Please see this guide on how to axis the coupler; https://support.raise3d.com/N2-N2-Plus/ ... 3-923.html

You can look in the upper rear corner with a flashlight and see the coupler, move the carriage to see all around it and look for cracks.
I had the same issue a little while after I got my printer and thought the coupler was broken, when I took it apart it wasn't broken and when I put it back together the problem was gone. I don't know if something was loose or misaligned.
When I was having the problem I could (with the printer off) move the carriage back and forth and hear the clicking.
