Thank you both so much for your help. After all that, the electrician was about to follow the advice of bypassing the switch, went to one of the terminals suggested and the wire just fell out. It wasn't in there properly or tightened down. So, we aborted the plan, put the cable back tightened it down, and that was it. Problem solved.

I feel a bit silly, but didn't really want to start playing with the wires on the control board without supervision. Turns out this is why the signal has been intermittent for the best part of a year. Thank you so much for your help again.

So onto the next problem, the stalling axis. What did you mean Argos by can I stop the X axis by hand?

Open the door,
(Carefully please) please a finger on the x axis trying to stop it.
Jogging the axis, and trying to stop it with your hand, are you able to stop it?

If it`s stalling at high feed rates in manual then you will need to remove & clean both leadscrew nuts.

It`s not a massive job as long as you remove & clean them one at a time & check the alignment is correct as you put it back together.

Are the lead screw nuts the triangular ones?

Apart from the alignment of the nuts, is there anything else I need to check when reassembling?
