Motors too hot! Any ideas?
« on: July 07, 2017, 09:34:42 PM »
This is a fresh build. Just got it running thanks to help from others. Today's question is: Why is X holding at about 105F while Y and Z are cooking at 160F? My router is probably not going to provide enough metal contact to sink it away. Thanks for any help.

Check  / adjust the drive amp setting according to what the motor manufacturer recommends.

Right you are my man! Thank you. I knew the dips were important, but I was sure I had set them all the same. In reality, the Y and the Z were all off by one switch. Thanks again.
