My wife's nephew just gave me an Ender 5 with Marlin1.1.9.1 firmware and a BTL leveling kit. He set it up and once I started using Cura, the thing prints awesome prints. My main concern is when I select home on the menu, the X & Y motors slam the axis's into the homing switches. I'm afraid over time the switches will break. Is there anything I can do to fix this?

@johntech Sorry I am not sure I get your point. That is only your concern, right? Your switches are all fine now?

Trust me, when the other parts of your printer are broken, the switches will be fine. It has a very low failure rate.
