Hello and thank you for choosing the Leapfrog Xeed for your printing needs.
If one of your Z stepper motors has stopped working this i quite a serious matter and has to be addressed as quick as possible.
To that end please follow the steps below:
1. First remove the top cover of your printer in order to have access to the electronic board where your stepper motors are connected; Access to these connectors will be restricted but all you need to check is if the connectors are loose in any way or damaged:
2. Once you checked the connectors on the board the next step is to check the connectors in the stepper motors themselves:
- Front left Z motor: - open the drive unit drawer and remove any filament spools as you will need room to access the connector:
- Next is the front right and back stepper motors. The connectors for these motors are much easier to access:
If you find a connector which is loose please do reconnect it and check the motors by using the jog controls for the Z movement;
If a connector is damaged at either end please make sure to contact our support department as fast as possible;
A motor not working could be due to loose connector, a loose wire in the connector thus the signal from the mothreboard to the motor is not properly transmited or a damaged wire harness ( a kink in the wires which results in a interruption of the signal sent from the board to the motor)
