Y-axis Thread issue

Hello, hoping someone might have a suggestion for my problem.

The thread for the Y-Axis does not seem to turn as smoothly as the X-axis, and seems to get stuck.

It will work briefly, but the motor then seems to be unable to turn the thread.

I’ve swapped the motor and the same issue persists.

I also loosened all the bolts and re-tightened thinking it was maybe not aligned perfectly. This seemed to help allowing the thread to turn more freely, but its reverted to being hard to turn again after 5 minutes of use.

Thanks for taking the time to read.

With no power to it you should be able to turn it freely by hand all the way in both directions.If this is not possible it could be slightly bent or thread damage.
