New printer fails calibration on x axis

This printer keeps doing the first point, going to the edge of the printbed, then stopping and telling me it failed. When I go to the manual movement the printer will hit the other point before its gets to 0, it ranges from the mid 50s to 180 on the X axis before failing. Auto home dopesnt help, tensioning belt doesnt help, I took it apart to make sure the stepper was correct. I can't find the issue please help.

Please help

Hello,

I got this printer and got it all setup and had issues with the x axis failing. After tearing it down several times I was able to get it to print and got about 30 hrs on it before the x axis started not moving. So now it has been 3 days and have tried everything that I can find but it still fails. It moves now but when it get close to edge the stepper makes a grinding noise. This only happens when getting close to 0 and 180. Any help on this would be great.

Does the axis move freely by hand with the printer switched off?

Have you tried a little lubrication?

Cheerio,

It moves freely by hand with no issues.
