According to the troubleshooting guide found Here:


E06 - Z axis stall (Normal)

Description of Issue

A Z-axis stall is caused when the difference between the commanded distance becomes much
more than the actual distance over the allotted time interval. An easy example of this would
be putting your hand on the cutting truck and preventing it from moving during an operation.
The computer is commanding it (and expecting it to move a certain distance in a given time
interval) but your hand is preventing it from moving; or stalling the movement. A stall does
not have to be a physical obstacle to movement. For instance if a power lead to the motor was
broken then the motor would not move when commanded and the computer would record a

Possible Causes

Causes include: obstacles blocking the movement of the cutting head, outdated firmware,
faulty electrical circuit in the shop, and electrical short in the machine, a loose connector, a
faulty power supply, or a cut motor that is not spinning.

Troubleshooting Steps

Suspect your FFC flat Cable is bad.

A Test... Turn on the machine and go to the options and Sensor Data and Z Data. Move the head up to the top mechanical stop and record the number. Lower the head to the bottom and record that number.

Now move the head up and down about 6 times while moving the FFC cable in the back. You are looking for a broken wire inside the cable for the ENCODER Data. I broken wire will result in the counter stopping while you move the head up and down. After 6 moves the numbers will be different. This only tests the Encoder Wires but is a high failure.

It could also be other wires inside the FFC Cable but if the Z Power Wires inside the FFC Cable do break then you usually just get a stall.

A Classic cutting into the board is usually a bad FFC Cable....

Good Luck,
