Hi! Last week one of my drivers committed suicide, it simply “burned” up. This was for the z-axis. I thought it was weird since my z-axis slides well and I’ve never had any problems with it.
This is what it looked like.
Anyways I sent a support request and velleman sent me a new driver. I received it today and started printing.
About three hours into a print I smelled burned driver(!).
It´s the exact same problem but now with the y-axis?? The driver is burned in the exact way.
Since the same thing happened with both y and z-axis it cant be an alignment problem, and should’nt the drivers turn themselves off if they´re starting to overheat? (All fans are working)
Anyways, doesn’t really seem to be a solution just to replace the driver and wait for the x-axis driver to burn up.
