Motor will not jog at slow speed.
« on: November 25, 2015, 10:29:02 PM »
Had a motor lock up on me.
First thought the x axis screw was in a bind but enede up being  the motor locked up.
Order new motor and installed and now the x and y axis are acting like they are binding up when jogging at a slow speed bit when you get it over 60% they move. But when moving 100% they are fine.
Thought it was my g540 driver messed up put a spare one in and same problem Tried different setting and same issues.

Deleted mach 3 thinking maybe something got corrupted and reprogram everything same problems.

Screws turn fine when motors are powered off.

Also noticed with using the keyboard which is the only way i have to jog right now.
If i go in one direction x-  then go x+ the direction doesn't change if you click back and forth on each one it straight up. it does it in the y direction also.

here a link to a video showing my issues

Figured it out after stating to troubleshooting motor wiring.
Both the x and y axis wiring had a bad spot in them. Replaced wiring both axis working fine now.

Running a test cut now and see if I have all my setting back to where they need to be.
