I was having trouble with inserting filament, so I took the black box at the back of the printer apart, and manually inserted the material, but in the process I had to unscrew the motor that drives the turning thing that inserts the material. However, I underestimated how large and heavy the motor would be, so when I unscrewed it, it fell pretty hard. When I went to observe the damage, I found these two switches, but couldn't find where I should re-attach them. I think they have to do with the lifting of the plate, but I'm quite new to this and don't have a great idea on how to find where they should go without recklessly dismantling more stuff :). Any help would be so appreciated!

 

Thanks!

In the top of your printer you should see some holes for them (left back i believe). They are the end stops so the axis run into them.

There's an assembly manual -

no need to take it apart that far... 😃 ... but you can use the pictures as a reference:
