    hey guys, curious of you know what might be the problem. Ive leveled it many times. cleaned rods and not sure what else i can do. the motors work fine. but when it goes up a bit then stops when it tries to come back down and sounds like it gets stuck. any ideas??

    video maybe?

    Ignoring any other symptoms if it will only go UP then normally one of the Z switches is out of position and effectively stuck open (meaning that the printer thinks the extruder is on the bed and can not go any further down).

    That is the part that I don't understand. Is something blocking the carriage? A video of this might help.

    Mine was doing that and after a good clean/lube of the Z axis threaded rods it stopped.
