Hello,

I finished assembling my printer yesterday, but only one Z motor works, I tried to swap the two Z connectors on the electronic, and still one works, looks like the electronics has a faulty connector to me.

I emailed Prusa Research yesterday, but I guess a forum post won't hurt.

Do both motors work but only one socket or is it the other way around?

it was one of the noobest mistakes, just right after is the plug connected...

I wired the motors wrong, and one of the Z was in the E spot.

 

So just a solid mistake from me.

A fix is a fix.

Welcome to the 3D print learning curve.
