Z axis not working......Help

Z axis not working......Help

Postby Buddy » Tue Sep 13, 2016 6:26 pm

Well it happened. While configuring the Z axis dimension it just stopped.
The X and Y axis jogs just fine but Z is just dead.
I checked all wiring at the bo board and Z dirver. Everything looks fine.
The Z axis motor is warm as is the other motors.
What would be a good way to check the bo board and driver to see if
there may be a short in one of the connections.

I would swap X or Y with Z. This way you know if the motor or the electronic has a problem.

Thanks Larry104
I did that and the motor is ok. Did the same with the electronic driver and it did not work. So I ordered a new driver.
