Stepper motor wont turn
July 15, 2015 06:59PM
One of my stepper motors for a 3D printer just vibrates and doesn't turn, it used to though.

I have tried swapping the connection, changing the step stick but doesn't work.
I have also taken it out of the printer.

Any help appreciated.

If the same stepstick and cable work on a different motor, then I suggest you take the faulty motor apart and look for a broken wire.

I ordered new step sticks which came today but still the same problem. Using a volt meter testing the coil pares there is continuity. I now believe it might be the ramps board as now both x and y don't work, these are what i was switching around to test. When i turn the printer on the x motor (y is disconnected) is humming, is locked unlike the other motors and when on pronerface i press "Motors Off" nothing happens to it (it also doesn't move).

Also I have changed the arduino.

It was a firmware problem -_-

// For Inverting Stepper Enable Pins (Active Low) use 0, Non Inverting (Active High) use 1
#define X_ENABLE_ON 0
#define Y_ENABLE_ON 0
#define Z_ENABLE_ON 0
#define E_ENABLE_ON 0 // For all extruders

For me it was just the code.

If one motor works you could try the other motors in that slot to see if the motor isn't working or if it is something else.
