Problems with the 16mm Illuminated Pushbutton

by itek4bux on Thu Aug 10, 2017 7:32 pm

So I ordered the 16mm Illuminated Pushbutton and while I like the built-in LED, mechanically it doesn't work very well. To either open or close the switch I have to press the button repeatedly and hope that it works. The switch mechanism isn't very smooth and isn't very unreliable.

Is this just expected behavior from a cheap switch or do I have a bad switch?

Sounds like just a lemon. Do you have just the one? And it sounds like one of the latching ones?
