    I've had the left Y motor stop twice in the last couple days, on Workbee 1010 w/ 2.2kw spindle. First I thought the Nema 23 high torque motors; however, if I shut the system down and reboot, the motor and all motors work fine. On the most recent episode, was cutting a tiling project and on the second cut it forgot zero, went off course and then the suspect Y motor stopped working. I noticed there is a firmware update, going to try that, any other clues?

    1) Which controller are you using
    2) Have you checked current adjustment on the motor that stops (sounds like thermal cutout - which resets when you power cycle / gave it bit of cooldown time)
