Missing End Stop

Posted · Missing End Stop

Every time the head on my Ultimaker 2 returns to the home position in the back corner, it grinds as the belts stutter to try and push it farther. This has occurred ever since I received my Ultimaker 2. From reading threads of others with this problem, I thought it may be that the end stops that trigger the head to stop may be malfunctioning. After examining my Ultimaker 2, I found that the metal switch on the end stop in the x direction is not even there. I have included a picture to show this.

Missing End Stop

Can I send away for this part from Ultimaker since it was never included in the printer I received? How would I do this? Is it easy to install it myself?

Thanks
