Sounds like your steps per aren't set right in motor tuning or maybe you have changed the drive from 10 mirosteps to no micro steps. Is this a new set up?

OK, you are running 2 different profiles?  Have a look at motor tuning, steps per for each profile if you are and compare the z axis steps per.

Micro steps arent set in Mach and if all the hardware is the same between the set ups, it will be a config. issue.
