What you are describing is overheating drivers exactly. It was a flawless description of that issue, including the idle noises and erratic movements. Please check to verify that your back fans are working, the mesh filter is clean, and your circuit board is not covered in dust.
 
If you have changed or modified your drivers in any way, please let me know. IfI'm confident the wrong driversissue is a failing fan, clogged/blocked filter, or both. Both fans are installed, or the current setting is modified by adjusting the silver pot screw, the drivers can overheat regardless of available cooling100% necessary.

Otherwise, because more than one axis is affected, it leads me to believe it is a failing fan, clogged/blocked filter, or both. Both fans are 100% necessary.



Note
Note: you should avoid cutting particle board directly without using a vacuum to immediately capture the dust. The dust is so fine and basically microscopic that it gets onto and clogs everything. It can also find its way into the bearings too easily. If you milled a significant amount of particle board without a vacuum, you will need to lubricate your bearings and ballscrews as soon as possible. The particle board dust dries itthe bearings and ballscrews out almost immediatelyimmeidately. You will also need to thoroughly clean your back electronic cover, boards, fans, and mesh filter.
