[Solved] Y Axis Bed Noise

Y Axis Bed Noise

Hi folks,

I have an older MK2s printer at home. It's still working well, but I've noticed an almost rattling/grinding noise coming from under the bed when the Y Axis is moved. Now I have noticed if I place very gentle pressure on the bed while moving it solves the issue. I'm wondering if it's a bearing issue, my first port of call would be to maybe tighten the U-clamps holding the bearings, but I'm worried about overtightening them.


Any one had anything similar?

Well just an update. I think I had been fearful of overtightening the U bolts. I have tightened them all more, and that seems to have solved the issue. Hopefully not too much and I may need to replace the bearings in the future.
