New assembled Simple Metal making noises

Postby wildpalms » 2015-Jan-Fri-13-Jan

I recently got an assembled Printrbot Simple Metal here in the UK through amazon (having seen that they were official distributors). It was a rather late Christmas present.

Having read a lot a lot on material and watched a load of videos we got it printing and I couldn't be happier with the quality. Very nice and simple to use (living up to it's name).

However I do have a problem with the noise it makes: When moving in the Y axis there is a loud metallic grinding noise. (Add the following path to the standard YouTube url /watch?v=D6jQR_iikRo&feature=youtu.be) Can hear it in the video as the clicking (my iPhone not too good at audio).

It almost sounds like there is debris inside the bearing block and it grinds against the rod when moving.

Is this normal or do I have a broken machine. I can return it to Amazon quite easily but they no longer have the assembled machines here in the UK.

If you move the y axis by hand when the motors are off, does it make the same noise?

Is the noise occur consistently at the same location of y travel?

Yes. I did the video whilst printing as easier to hold the phone. The louder clicking noise is very much towards the middle of the travel.

I've just wound the Z up and looked at the linear shafts. The lower Y axis one looks like it has some scoring along it's length for about 4"
