    CNC 3018 Y Axis - horrible jogging noise

    Hey all,

    Got a BangGood CNC 3018.

    LINK: https://www.banggood.com/3018-3-Axis...r_warehouse=CN

    Didn't expect much from it, and that was confirmed after I put it together and tried to jog it...

    The Y-axis makes a horrible chugging/grinding noise - like the steps are not being cycled sequentially; like it's fighting itself.

    If I put the X-axis stepper on the Y-axis control port - the X-axis now makes the same behaviour (it's the Y-axis controller).

    I've already asked the manufacturer for comment - but just on the off chance this is a "known issue" - I thought I'd try here to see if anyone knew of the fix.

    Else I'll just wait for manufacturer to get back to me; will advise what they do to fix it.

    I would not expect much help from the Vendor.
    I would check the wiring on the Y Axis Motor Driver. It might be just a simple wire swap.

    You get a machine from "BangGood" and you're surprised that it bangs so well? Try dialing down the acceleration on the axis giving troubles, see if that helps.

    Replace the driver. Just a reprap 3d printer step stick stuck on the GRBL board. Less than 3 bucks for those usually. I'd also put heatsinks on them, those WILL burn up without them.

    Re: CNC 3018 Y Axis - horrible jogging noise

    In my case the "noise" is in the x axis and comes from the stepper motor. The axis was bended and it was forcing the stepper damaging it... it still works but makes noise.

    In the stepper says "Anchuan Motor 57HD0401 - 15SB 1.8 2.0A N1801"

    Any Ideas For a replacement!?

    If its just bearing noise, they are quite easy to replace.
    Theres not much else to go wrong.
