You can buy a $3.00 micro switch from Radio Shack and replace the fault gap detector switch if you can solder electrical connections properly.

I've done dozens of them.

Bad GAP HOME is a problem with the sensor (switch) that senses the automatically set printhead gap. Usually the wires break from flexing that run to the switch. Could be a bad switch also, or others.

You need to test the switch and wires with a meter.
