[Noisebridge-discuss] "do not touch - broken" signs on the 3d printer -- anyone know what's broken?

I see the Flashforge Creator 3d printer has two "do not touch -- broken!!!"
signs on it.  Does anyone know what's broken?  I haven't been in the space
for a few months, so I'm a bit out of date, I'm afraid.

I couldn't see anything physically broken; the only clue is a spare endstop
board on top of the machine.  I checked all the endstops and they look
fine, so I fired it up, connected to ReplicatorG, and slowly ran the
machine into each of the endstops, and it performed fine.  I tried heating
up the heads and extruding some filament, and it worked fine on both the
left and right sides.  The platform heated up just fine also.

Not being able to find anything wrong at this point, I ran a test print,
and it completed perfectly.  So I'm a bit mystified at this point about
what exactly is broken... can anyone help me?
