Replacing the XY Stepper Motor

Removing the XY stepper motor from your printer is a process that requires finess and small movements. Be especially careful not to strip the screws or pinch the wires during this process.

  1. Secure the belt around the axle of the new XY Stepper Motor.
  2. Connect the four-wire connector that attaches to the front of the XY Stepper Motor.
  3. Place the new XY Stepper Motor on the metal shim so that the shim and motor are aligned with the screw holes in the printer case shelf.
  4. Thread the screws into the bottom of the printer case shelf and up into the XY Stepper Motor.
  5. Tighten each screw until it is completely tight and in place.
  6. Check the belt tension for the belt attached to the motor. Adjust the tension if necessary. For more information about adjusting the belt tension, please see Adjusting the Belt Tension.
