B9Creator X Motor Replacement

1. Unplug the power and USB connection from the printer. Then remove the 4 hex cap screws on the front rail to allow for easier access during disassembly.


2. Remove the red aluminum tray.



3. Loosen the 2 set screws that hold the gold arm to the x-motor shaft. Once they are a slightly loose, the gold arm should slide off at the top.



4. Remove the 4 screws and hex nuts that hold the x-motor assembly to the x-axis.


 5. Pull the X-Motor assembly off of the screws. You will now need to clip the 2 zip ties and remove the connection to the PCB to fully remove the X-Motor from the machine.



6. Remove the 6 screws to detach the x-motor from the red motor attachment plate. Once this is done, you can attach the new motor.



7. Reverse these steps to reassemble:

  1. Bolt the x-motor back to the x-axis plate
  2. Connect the x-motor connector to the circuit board
  3. Slide the gold arm back over the x-motor shaft and tighten the 2 set screws. Make sure there is a small gap between the gold arm and x-axis plate to ensure the gold arm does not contact the x-axis plate as it rotates (see picture below).
  4. Align one screw with the flat section of the X Motor Shaft and then tighten both screws.
  5. Add back in the red plate
  6. Bolt down the front slide rail.

Once back in place, you can test the x-motor for functionality by plugging in the machine and using the toggle switch. Now you are ready to calibrate the build table and begin printing!
