One of my stepper motors is missing steps, even with no torque applied. I know the normal solution would be to tweak the pots, but my situation is a little weird, so I just wanted to get your feedback.
This is my second xcarve, first one has been running without problems for over a year. All parts arrived except the xcontroller, si I used my old xcontroller to test my setup while the new one comes.
So I’m using a known good xcontroller with known good pots settings.
However, the problematic stepper misses steps regardless of where I plug it, x, y1 or y2.
And the last issue is that in the current setup, this is stepper is assigned to Y2, worries that tweaking the pots will also affect y1.
Because of the specifics of the case, I’m thinking that tweaking the pots might not be the way to go, but I have no idea on what else to try.
Do you think a bad stepper is a possibility? How can I diagnose that?
