X Axis Keeps Jogging After Homing

When I run the homing sequence in easel (with x-controller) it runs all the axis till they hit the homing switches, just like it should. But then the x-axis keep slowly jogging away from the home switch and doesn’t ever stop unless I make it stop with ‘X’ button on the controller, even if I manually toggle the x-axis home switch. I checked the switch and it is working fine, it is not getting stuck closed like I would expect to cause this to happen.

It has done this off and on since I build the machine a few weeks ago. Normally just stopping it and re-homing works, but it is getting worse and worse.

Does anyone have any suggestions on what the issue may be? Since the switch is working fine, my first thought is software/firmware but I would think this would be a widely reported issue if so I can’t find any other posts about it.

Check your wiring, it’s usually the problem.

I have a few jobs to run tomorrow and I am sure it will happen again. I will go over all the wiring in detail then.

Thanks, hopefully it is something simple like that.
