Hello, I haven’t used my mini in a year so obviously nothing works (buy British by twice as they say) but love it all the same

As per usual took a witch apart and it exploded bits all over the place, cleaned the contacts etc

Each configuration I put it back together the switch feels all sloppy so if anybody can see what’s wrong please let me know.. already rage ordered a new one lol

If in your opinion 'it's buy British buy twice' can you educate us what nationality we need to buy so we don't buy twice?

 

Does this apply to only to the classic mini which granted is an anachronism.

The white plastic “cartridge” with spring loaded contacts has a top and a bottom.
I took mine apart and marked the top of the switch and the top of the white plastic with tippex
But
The tippex on the white plastic part came off!!!!
Damn
So
Do you know which end of the “cartridge” goes to the 4 terminals of the rocker switch body ?
