Question Replacing NEMA 23 2.8A with 3.5A Motor Damage Control Board?

My x-axis 23H276-28-4B bit the dust today. I have a brand new 23H2100-35-4B motor available. Would installing this larger motor have an adverse affect on any of the electronics?

TIA,
Bryan

Yes.

It won't hurt the control board, but the drivers and motors are set up for each other. That may need some tweaking or changing out.

What drive does your machine use?

Old school Rockcliff Stepper Driver 4X from 2009. Well, technically 3X since I fried one drive many years ago. Luckily I only need a 3-axis driver.

If you have the power supply to handle it, put in a drive that will handle the motor

These larger motors are for when something beyond repair in my current machine goes and I replace the PS and Rockcliff with a G540.

Turns out the motor was fine. After troubleshooting, it was discovered that a couple wires were loose on the individual drivers causing what is shown in the following video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nVhZ96bIf6s
