What stepper driver are you using?  

Stepper basics may be of interest.


And what power supply? A stalled stepper of this  size can easily draw 2Amps

I will design & code for you, but I will also charge you (PM me)
If you don't like my answers, realize : I'm not being cheeky, I'm Just trying to prompt you to use your own brain/google etc.


Maybe there is a loss of one of the coils. I received a stepper motor that had one broken cable.... It behaved strangely. Check Your convertion from 6 wire to 4 wire.
Use Your knowledge. If that's not enough, look for education.
Having knowledge, think outside the box to gain more of it. Only trains run like the train, on the rails. The rest run between the rails.
