MPX-90 problem

Post by johnb » Wed Apr 20, 2016 5:31 pm

I'm having a problem with my MPX-90.

After printing, the machine emits a high-pitched wine for a brief moment while the head is moving back to base. Subsequent prints are then misaligned, and the head will not correctly centre. It's as if the spindle which operates the forwards and backwards movement is slipping. Oddly, the problem is intermittent. The machine can operate perfectly for a while, then suddenly the problem appears.

Has anyone else experienced anything similar?

Checked the inside of the machine for any cables that are trapped or crimped, it could be caused by this.

I've checked the cables - everything looks OK.

Problem SOLVED !!!..............possibly.

I tried lubricating the rods on which the X and Z axes slide. Now the machine appears to be operating OK.

But then I checked the manual. In Section 5-1 Daily Care, it states "Never attempt to oil or lubricate the machine".

What is the correct thing to do?

Use a lint free cloth to remove any excess oil.
