    So one of my motors seems to have a bad bearing. I was in the process of taking the cover off to replace the motor and somehow I broke the piece pictured off of the main board. Is there any way I can get the piece back on? The metal connections are so small I am scared that there might not be a way. I am sick about it. A replacement board is $400.

    You could probably re-solder that if you took the board out-- and you are pretty good with soldering circuit boards -- I wouldn't try it with the board in the shell

    That's a tough one and not sure if possible without a gas reflow set-up (even for an experienced person).

    Even than it's iffy IMO.
