I'm new to 3D printing and have bought an Ender 3. I have printed a few good prints but I'm noticing a worsening issue:
When I select "autohome" the axes head towards their limit switches, but the y axis in particular seems to slam into the limit switch, bending it away, meaning that the platform bounces off and doesn't activate the limit switch a second time
This causes the machine to slam against the back over and over until the limit switch is triggered or power is removed.
I've replaced the limit switch twice
I've tried supergluing the limit switch to its PCB but even with a needle and patience this caused the limit switch to be ruined
What can I do?
Edit: Here are some photos of the switch (2nd replacement). The OEM switch also did the same thing, but I don't have photos of that. The screws are loose in these photos, but this is just because my Allen key is lost - the previous two switches had the screws reasonably tightened with the correct Allen key, provided in the box
