Merlin: crazy noise from the lower motor

by gloob » Tue Nov 08, 2011 4:34 pm

Hello,

My lower motor does make crazy noise when moving horizontal. The seller means that this is normal after some time and I should have a look at the price of this device. Does anybody have some similar problems with the merlin?

Is there a possibility of getting spareparts for the motor or replace the whole motor with encoder with a better one?

Regards
Stefan

A photoelectric barrier is placed on the motors
Perhaps its LED is bent in that way that it streaks the small black wheel (check the yellow marked area on the photo below).
If the wheel can`t rotate free, carefully bend the Led a little bit back
