Grinding Noise All of a Sudden

Post by TheNeck(Roger) » Sun Apr 01, 2018 5:37 pm

my photon since Saturday, i just got it Wednesday too. it will not print anything completely ever since it started making this awful grinding sound. it only print 3-5 layers no matter what i print, even it is says the print is finished. :( ive releveved the bed many times, clean the z rod and lubed it too. you name it i tried. most likely the stepper motor is defective, all i can think of. what do you think before i return it and maybe get a replacement.

With these descriptions, it really seems to be a motor problem Roger.

The faster the return is made, the faster Photon will be replaced.

thanks that is what i was thinking. sucks because all of the FDM printers i have and 1 SLA printer, i have never had a bad stepper motor with over 1000s of hours printed on them too. :(
