Thank you for the offer. I went ahead and ordered a new one.I have read here on IH8MUD, that some of the switches are opposite of what you need. Yours should be normally open. Some are normally closed for some reason. That will not work for you. Don't know if off shore knows what they are selling. Be careful.
If I had that switch, I would try to take it apart and fix it. That's what I always do. I learn things, nothing to lose and sometimes I fix the part. It would be a very simple switch to fix. The hard part is getting it apart without destroying it. Send it to me if you want me to try. No charge.
