Un-park and move the gantry over to the lowered build table. Now you
can reach under it and wipe it with a damp paper towel. Stay away
from the print heads.
The problem may be due to a damaged build table lead screw or the
lead screw motor. I hope that you have a service contract. This can
get to be very expensive.
