Thanks for the photos. They help.

But we really can't assess what's happened without removing the plate.

I appears, although the photo angle is not ideal, that the plate itself is not bent, but rather has pulled away from the body. Depending on how it is attached, that means that either the attachment screws (?) have stripped or the body part to which the plate attaches has distorted, or something even further up the attachement chain is the problem.

We really can't blame the plate at this point, unless it is clearly bent or distorted.

If Melville won't help, OP may want to get the unit to a shop that can do the dissassembly for a modest fee. It probably means replacing many of the rubber coverings, not a big item, but some cost. Only once inside can you assess the damage and decide on next steps.

Good luck. We're all interested in following this.
