The lesson should be that he gave an answer that was already posted 3 posts before, it indicates he just jumped in and fired an answer.

He shared his experience and bumped a long running discussion. He doesn't need a lesson nor a lecture. He deserves encouragement to contribute another 1080 helpful posts.

From what pictures are here the problem seems to be with switches that have blue stems.

Mine is fine (albeit blue) but having got this far I decided to order one (non-blue) from Digikey; hopefully it is the right one.

They also stock a cheaper (blue stem) version, but that just didn't seem like a very good idea to me.

Another switch failure with an RT-AC66U (1 of 20). It's one of the newer units, was wall mounted and untouched for years. Failure occurred during a power outage. (!?)

Will likely report switch cover and block opening. While there is enough information here to source the part and resolder, the switch seldom (never) gets used so no loss of functionality if removed.
