End stop switch work but wont stop motor

Postby PCSC » Mon Nov 30, 2015 11:49 am

I sent the M119 command on every axis and they are all correct. When i send the all command using Matter control it goes up hits the switch and just keeps smashing into the top never stops and when i turn it off all of the end stops are being pressed.

Sounds like switches are wired wrong or defective.
Do you get different results with M119 when switch is pressed vs. not pressed?

sorry, I don't remember at the moment whether they are supposed to be Normally Open or Normally Closed.
Look in the assembly manual and double check your wiring.

When they are not pressed it will show a L after the axis letter and while pressed it shows an H like it says it should. All of the wires are in the proper places and plugged into the proper port on the MotherBoard

Double check that you've got the right axis wired to each of the right connectors. Also make sure that you're connected to the xyz MAX connectors and not the minimum endstops.

It is on the end stops and they are all on the correct axis. When i send the M119 command it shows an H after the correct axis. When I do the home command and press a switch nothing happens on any axis i have checked all cabling 5 times now so it is all wired properly. It just wont stop when hitting the end stops

Just for giggles, can you copy & paste the output you get from the serial terminal as you test each switch?

tnx.

That is correct. Very, very, weird.

Try re-running the EEPROM_CLEAR program and then reload the firmware.

Let us know if that works.

I am having this same problem. Nothing seems to work. I just spent the last 6 hours trying to figure this out. When I run the M119 tests everything responds. Tried to run the eeprom_clear and then reload the firmware from the IDE but that did not help either. I have tried everything I could find in every forum. Everything else works, updated the hotend with the E3D v6 and that works perfectly. What am I missing?

Did you check to make sure that the motors are plugged into the correct axis connectors on the controller? Realistically, barring a hardware failure on the controller, that's the only reason the motors wouldn't stop when the end-stops are hit (and the end stops are both working and showing the correct axis when triggered.)
