spindle problems mach3
« on: February 07, 2009, 02:12:06 PM »
I have spindle problem and tryed some of the differant post answer but still have issues
1 hit spindle button nothing happen flashs yellow have to hit reset below spindle button to turn spindle on when I do that I get a massage by the red reset switchpwm bumped to minamal setting.
2 calibrate spindle nothing in that box seems to work the spindle
3 if I input rpm or pick spindle speed lets say 3000 rpm when I hit the spindle start button the speed disappears and says zero and the spindle does not turn on Iget the same problem stated in number 1
4 to make life easy is there a way to override the spindle and turn it on by hand.
IT is a maxnc15cl thanks for anyhelp it been a long hard road uphill

Sorry dont know anything about the Maxnc machines but you should be able to hack into the wiring to the spindle to switch on via a switch. Have a look at your pulley settings and see whats entered there, also check to see you are on the correct pulley.
