I opened up a switch because water got into it, and after I disassembled it, I got very confused.
the picture shows the exact order at which the parts are assembled. what is making the connection between the 2 ends of the switch? there is only a metal ball and a spring and the 2 conductors, everything else is plastic.
the ball is always in contact with the 2 conductor bars when assembled, and even when the button is pressed, the position of the ball doesn’t move. I don’t know if the spring touches the 2 conductor barss when compressed, but it seems to be the only possible choice that this spring is the conductor that connects the 2 conductor bars. is this how it works?
