I’m have a daVinci 1.0 Pro and had the same problem. This is what I had to do to fix mine, but I’m not sure if it’s the same problem with the mini maker. It would be worth you taking a look at these instructions to see if it’s similar to your issue. Good luck!
I didn’t bend the pipe, I just left it straight and put it into the push-connector and then used garden wire to hold the whole thing in place.
