I recently got my lulzbot mini and I believe there is a problem with the Y axis. There is a strange noise coming like thwap thwap… like something is scraping. Prints are fine just there is a noise where there shouldn’t I believe. https://youtu.be/61Z_4rZKD-o
I included a video. The sound is kinda faint in the video so I hope some experienced users can identify what it is. It has been just a lil more than 24 hours
Here are the possibilities for what is making that sound, in order of likeliness:
- There is a belt end loose that is rubbing on the rest of the belt when the bed is in motion
- The entire belt is loose
- The small setscrews on the Y motor pulley are loose and shifting
- You are one of the lucky owners of a mini with a broken Y motor shaft.
- It’s a bad idler bearing
- it’s something on the Y rods that needs cleaned off
Can you also tell me what I need to do to fix them?
So I played around a little bit… Now thwap thwap sounds like a freaking pigeon in my printer. Any help? Such noise much annoy help pls
