Bed drop down alone after 5-10min of printing alone....

All is on the Title. I don't understand why is dropped down alone, with a great "CLAC" while touching the bottom of the printer.....
How to resolve this problem?? Any bootloader to flash?
Thank you the community!!

Hello Hazuka,

The problem you describe is most likely due to a Z axis stepper driver failure, most likely due to overheating, you will need to either:

- Send the printer for repair, the best option as it ensures everything will work corretly and you will keep your waranty.
- Buy a power unit and replace the control part of the printer yourself, not hard to do if you are handy
- Fix it yourself by dissasembling the motherboard out of the bottom of the printer and ensuring all the heatsinks, fans and air path are well seated on the stepper drivers a clear of any debrys.

Best regards.
