I am hoping someone can help me. The gremlins are holding my printer hostage.
I recently completed a print and when I tried to start another I got this grinding noise on the x-axis as the extruder was moving from left to right, simutaneously back to front or vice versa. When it travels on the y-axis (eg. front to back) without the extruder moving- no problem.
The other problem is when the grinding started I cannot get the extruder to print properly. It starts wandering off into the distance and does its own thing.
Any suggestions would be appreciated.
1.Lubricated all the travel arms and cleaned them.
2. Replaced the motor on the x axis.
Thanks very much.
