Loud click from motors?

Post by m_bergman » Tue Jun 11, 2013 8:00 pm

This new UP Plus I have is displaying an odd trait - the Y and Z axis motors make a loud click noise once every rotation. On the Z axis you don't hear it that often, but on the Y axis if the part being printed lies in that area I hear a continual (and annoying) click-click as it passes back and forwards over that point.
If you move the table unpowered over that point while touching the motor, you can feel the motor jolt. I've had the case off the arm, and it is definitely in the motor.
The old machine never did this. Is this normal for these newer motors, or are they faulty?
