  • Spindle Stopped working/spinning

    Hello, all

    During my project, my spindle stopped working between projects, and as far as we can tell, we didn't do anything to it. This happened after we fixed another problem where it wouldn't initialize, which gave us an X-exceeded error. While fixing this, we flipped a few breakers in the control box, and that seemed to fix it, but now the spindle won't spin. We looked over the G-code and found nothing out of the ordinary.

    It turns out we had a flipped breaker, which was causing the problem.

      The circuit had to be shorted or overloaded to open the breaker. Each time a breaker opens it weakens so maybe an old breaker? I would attach an amp meter which can record over time. I suggest you need to get to the root of the problem. IMHO.
