I just finished upgrading my stepper motors from nema 17s to 23s and everything is going smoothly except one thing. The 2 Y-axis motors seems to stall out at longer movements. To explain in greater detail…
I use Universal G-Code sender, and let’s say I set the manual control increments to 10mm. This works fine for all directions. However If I set the increment to something longer like 100mm, the Y axis motors will run smoothly for about 40-50mm then they’ll stop spinning and make that rumble/vibrate noise everyone seems to be familiar with. As both y axis motors are doing this identically, it leads me to believe it’s not a problem with the motors themselves.
I’ve triple checked the wiring everything seems to be connected properly… plenty of wire contact.
Any idea or suggestions would be greatly appreciated!
