It's better not to use it until it's fixed.

kenmore 40185053210 I have 3 switches the 2 upper ore Normally open the bottom one seems to be normally closed. when i make the switch it doesnt completely go open. it always seems to read some amount of continuity in the switch. So I ordered the switch from your sight last that is normally closed.
Really appreciate your reply and would still like to see some diagrams or something of that nature.
thanks ronnie

Per the description on the problem, the cause is a faulty switch which should be Normally Open (very top one). The Normally Closed switch is the monitor switch and is not connected to this problem.
The Normally Open switch Part number: AP4044834

Part number: AP4044834


Good luck.
Gene.
