Using updated Gsender for the first time. Was calibrating my machine when the z axis continued down and I could not stop it. Now all three axis’s are stalled and all I get when I try to jog them is a humming sound.
Can you share your Grbl settings?
@Mitch Welcome to the group, Mitch.
I’m sure that if your grbl settings can shed any light on your problem, @NeilFerreri is the guy to see it and give you advice on how to fix it.
Neil, here are the settings I get when I try to jog the machine:
I experienced something similar with my MkII yesterday – strong humming noise and no motion from any axis. The problem magically fixed itself after I unplugged the controller for 30 seconds (I had cycled the e-stop a few times first and that didn’t fix it, I had to physically unplug the controller.) Hope it helps.
There should be more settings than that. They should go up to $132.
I’d also recommend restarting the PC as well as the machine controller.
Neil, I tried both disconnecting the power to the controller as well as restarting the computer. No change.
Here is the missing gcode from my last message, plus the message sent on the console.
$132 = 105
$J = G20691 Y - 0.2 F3000
How about your $100 - $102, $110 - $112, $120 - $122
Yes the 691 is G91
Something has changed since my original post. The lead screws are no longer locked in place. I can now move them by hand, but the machine will still not move in any direction.
I don’t have a longmill, but I bet that should be something other than zero.
Change it to $100 = 200
Neil, I changed the Gcode for $100 and $101 to 200 as per a master list I had and the machine is now working. You are a genius. Thank you very much.
I’ll need a notorized letter for my wife!
Those $100, $101, $102 settings are the X, Y, Z steps per mm.
As the original issue has been addressed, I’m closing this topic. If anyone else has a similar concern, feel free to start a new topic, which will ensure that it is addressed promptly.
