Hello,

I've been working hard to find a Professional to assist you with your question, but sometimes finding the right Professional can take a little longer than expected.

I wonder whether you're ok with continuing to wait for an answer. If you are, please let me know and I will continue my search. If not, feel free to let me know and I will cancel this question for you.

Thank you!
Nicola

Hello, is the on/off switch a rocker switch, or push-to-make?

Also, could you explain more about shorting out the switch? Presumably you did this with the electrical supply turned off?
