Redsnapper Gen3 Z Axis doesn't stop

Hi Guys,

I have a question concerning RedSnapper. I built a Mendel with Gen3 Electronics. I can connect the printer and the z and y axis are moving fine when I use the xyz controls. However, once I try moving the z-Axis the motor just starts running and wont stop at all. I have to shut down the whole printer in order to stop the motor.
I tried Win XP and Ubuntu, same result. I tried ReplicatorG, same result, z-Axis doesn't stop. I'm using Gen3 Atmega644p, the firmware is from the reprap wiki. I'm hoping for an rookie error, but right now I'm stuck. If anyone has an idea what else I can try, I'd be glad...

Maybe your z_steps_per_mm is set to some insanely high value ?

Have you tuned your firmware config already ?
