Y Axis Squeaking

Post by Marauderz » Thu Nov 10, 2016 2:19 am

When my Y Axis moves (the one that goes in and out, thats Y right?) I can hear a squeaking noise, this is much louder during the first few layers. At first I thought the print head was too low cause I offsetted it a bit to print PETG, but even during movement like initialization I can hear it squeak. Is there something I should do about it?

X axis is the table going in and out, try applying grease to the linear rail.

To remove the platform table - remove the two allen screws underneath the table.
Then emove the cover over the linear rail by removing the 4 allen screws.
Apply a thin layer of grease to the rail.
