Noisy left side of X axis.

Trying to figure what is wrong. Appeared after about 100 hours of printing (though majority of stuff was printed on the center of the bed, so may have been there before), left side of X axis only, on a long movements. Oh yeah, it's stealth mode.

Any ideas?

First try cleaning and lubricating the smooth rods.

Cheerio,

Did that when noticed. Sounds more like resonance, to me, but no idea what is resonating.

If you can predict the sound try gently touching different parts of the printer to find which part is actually vibrating.

100 hours is approaching time for your first maintenance session (later 200 hours is about right):

Give the printer a little TLC and re-assess.

Cheerio,
