Hi just about done setting my new M Prime RAMPS 1.4 up and can not get the z to move when I hit the home button using Repetier?  It will move with the arrows but that is all?

The Z axis should move when you hit the home button and when you click on the arrows.
If the axis is not moving you can check a couple of things and let us know if it works:

  • Maybe the Z axis is not well configured. Send an M119 command and check if it is working as expected.
  • Maybe the axis motor is underpowered. Have you adjusted the motor current?
