Just got a new printer (first time setting it up myself).

While trying to level it, it appeared that the left side was higher than the right on the Z-axis. When the nozzle moves left, it digs into the platform. I checked the Z-stop sensor on the right side and it appears that when the screw hits it, the motor doesn't stop like it's supposed to.

After a few tries, the screw has managed to push the lever out to the side. I'm not great with tech, anyone have suggestions?

    $\begingroup$ The Z-axis is usually the up/down movement, X-axis is left/right, and Y-axis is front/back. Your question sounds more like it is the X-axis, can you confirm this please? $\endgroup$

    $\begingroup$ Could you edit and add a photo or two in order to illustrate the issue better? Maybe of the errant screw, and the pushed out lever... $\endgroup$
