The screaming wheel probably has a problem that need looking into carefully, Get lots of photos and post.


Oh no, I’m sorry you’ve hit snag.

For us to better understand the circumstances around the trouble, could you include a video showing the grinding noises you’ve described?

We look forward to hearing back from you!

I got it working , I had to restart it like 10 times before it just found the Head after the electric went out. Its no easy fix when that happens but its working again until next time.

Thank you

yea, you manually needed to ‘home’ it;
With the power of the unit off, gently push the gantry back to the back, and then push the print head (again gently) all the way to the left.

I had the same problem, but it wasn’t the GF, it was a truck hit a pole!
