Noisy stepper motor


#1

i have been using my wilson2 now for a few months, and it prints amazing.
since day one the motor for my Y Axis seems much louder than all the others.
almost a buzzing vibration sound, there are no loose parts and the belt is neither too loose or tight.
should i get a replacement motor to try or are there settings to adjust?
Thanks in advance

Maybe it is a stepper board? So the first thing I would try is swapping out the X and Y stepper driver boards. (Make sure power is off.) Then see if the noise goes with the X axis.
This is the easiest thing to try. So I would start there.
If the noise stays with the Y axis, then I would try taking the belt off and see what happens to the noise.
