Yes. That wasn't it. There was a little plastic part broken inside
that looked un-glue-able. It still clicked, but no electrical contact
was made any more. YMMV, of course, but that's what happened to mine.

Thanks for the correction about what the switch actually does. The
wires looked like they went different places, so I just assumed they
were different circuits, No reason for that, of course.
