I got this printer literally yesterday, at first it was fine but after a few test XYZ cube prints it started making a breaking noise when the Z axis moves down! Please see the video!

I'm about to return it, but thought maybe I have misconfigured something!

I'm not 100 % sure where exactly the noise is coming from, the motor itself or the connection of the pole with the bed!

Note this only happens when the z axis is moving down, the other way around it is fine!

Also this might be helpful: it stops making the noise when it is 2/3 of the way down then it becomes smooth!

  • $\begingroup$ Have you looked into binding? You could check the linear guides and lead screw if the printer is correctly assembled, or that those parts aren't bent. $\endgroup$
