    I just got my Startt printer, my first 3D printer, and have not been able to finish a single test print. At first, for the first 10-15 seconds of the print, it is working ok. Then the X motor starts clicking and not moving. I check wire connections and limit switches- but they are 100% connection and in the proper order/place. The driving track is a little loose, but manually turning the motor (when powered off and motor unplugged) is perfectly fine and easy with just my fingers (the track adapter on the stepper motor is screwed in and not freely moving).

  2. First of all, welcome to the 3D printing world.
    So, your x-motor starts clicking and then stops altogether after about 15 sec of a print.
    Can you hear the clicking noise when you move the x-axis through the LCD control panel of the printer?
    Have you also tried to connect your printer to a computer and moving the x-axis through the software? See if you see the same issue there.
    Can you hear the clicking noise from any other motor?
