My machining center kicked into "not ready" mode mid part and eveything stopped. I reset and when I zeroed all axis X and Z moved in rapid but my Y moved very slowly and shot past home and kicked the Y axis over travel, I shut down and tried agian and it homed OK but then shortly thereafter not ready kicked on and it would not reset I opened up the back cabinet and there was a AL 24 displayed on the LED on the spindle drive Is the spindle alarm somehow related to a Y axis homing problem - home switch stuck on? - this thing is a Fanuc OM. Any help is greatly appreciated.
Re: Alarm 24 displayed on spindle drive - not ready
Good day, I have just registered on thus forum. I was drawn here from the use of Google. I am a maintenance tech, just started the job so first time for me to get in about cnc machines but, I have an error 24 on my drive in my puma 250. Called mills who described the fault as a broken wire...cool but I read the thread and you mention a decel switch...where is that? Or even look like. I'm sorry that its such a basic question but with no training, Im doing my best.
