This does indeed sound a bit weird.
Which version of Mach3 are you using ??

If you attach your .xml file (the one from your Mach3 folder named <your profile>.xml [typically Mach3Mill.xml]) copy and rename it to paragon.xml then use the 'Reply' tab and Additional Options to post it - I will see if I can spot any problems in your set-up that may be causing the issue.

Just from an initial look at your .xml may I suggest the following…

Config. / Ports & Pins / Motor Outputs  -  change Step Pin # for A Axis from 5 to 8.
Config. / Motor Tuning  -  reduce Velocity for both X and Y axes from 400 to 300 & save each change.
Config. / General Config  -  Uncheck Use Watchdogs,  Increase LookAhead to 200.

Please see if that makes any difference.

Can you provide some details of your system...

Your PC ?
Your CNC controller ?
Anything else connected to the system ?

Which version of Mach3 are you using ?
