Loud Y-Axis Stepper Motor

Post by jammin0 » Fri Oct 09, 2015 10:01 pm

I have started using 2 different up! minis in a classroom setting and have run about 50 hours on each of them. One of them seems to be a lot louder than the other one when the extruder head is moving right and left. I can't really remember how loud it was when I first started out of the box but it seems to have gotten a little bit louder and one of them is for sure a lot louder than the other one.

Is there any type of adjustment I can make on the stepper motor? Anyone else experience this? Thanks for any help.
