X/Y/Z Axis' are not moving in Easel set up

None of my axis’ are moving when I try to set up Easel. Easel says to test each axis, but where do I do that? I don’t see where I can do that. I checked all the wirings & the correct wires are connected securely to the correct areas. Help!! -Anita

Make sure you have the Emergency Stop button pulled up all the way, turn it and pull it up.

Do you hear the machine make a minor “jolt” sound when its powered up? The stepper drivers energize the steppers and this make the steppers lock onto its nearest step position. This create a minute jolt motion/sound.

If you dont notice anything, its possible that the drivers dont receive power.
One culprit may be the E-stop, it need to be firmly disengaged (or bypassed entirely while troubleshooting)

The E-Stop button is up. It sounds like it jolts slightly. Nothing’s moving. :pensive:

Ok, drivers energize thats good.
Next would be to check and verify the integrity of the wiring of the steppers themselves.
Snap a pic of the controller front panel/wires?

For some reason it just started working. Dunno how or why, but IT’S ALIIIIIIVE!!! :rofl: :upside_down_face: :face_with_monocle: :woozy_face:
