I lubed everything with 3in1 oil and it worked after that. But I should do what you did and take it apart and clean everything.
I upped all my settings to quicker settings and fired up the printer last night. My plate is leveled a little different than my brothers photon and the other printers that have a swivel head. The 4 screws are kinda rough from me releveling every other print earlier on (from the burr issues I wasnt aware of.) so I had slightly raised the one end just enough to lose 1 dwarf on that end. I got 7 awesome dwarfs out of the rest of the build plate with no issues at all. I am a professional packrat when it comes to filling my buildplate. making the screws in the head not so rough should finish up the complete overhaul service I did on the printer but I think Im back in business. Im very stoked this morning. I think those issues are whats been plaguing me from the beginning. I suppose the good thing about all this is I have now figured out what each an every part of the printer does along with what all the settings do making printing easier down the road. I wasnt expecting a more severe hardware issue from the get go but that is what happens when the company doesnt deburr its metal parts.
