Hi. Replacement (6 months old!) tap in our sink is becoming increasingly difficult to activate its micro switch. Annoyed because went for Hymer original at stupid price. Thinking I might be able to adjust or somehow clean the micro switch I have taken off the hot/cold indicators but found not a screw as there was in the old one that died, but the arrangement shown in photo. Does anyone know if/how I can get anywhere with this? Any comments thankfully received!

Probably a broken wire that touches when you move the tap.
The micro switches rarely fail its nearly always the wires to them.
Save yourself a lot of hassle fit a Shoreflo pressure switched pump, that what I did.

We have gone through 3 micro switches in the last few years. So I changed and fitted a Whale pressure switch. Kept the nice quiet submersible pump and by passed the micro switches. Very easy to do once you have all the stuff you need. Cost less that £50.

A Shureflo is only 50 quid & if you fit the 20psi one it's quieter than the submersible pump.

Time to get your ears tested Lenny :LOL:. Can't hear my submersible

In your £50 you have not included all the bits to change the plumbing and wiring. My £50 included bits and bobs and getting QR fittings to make changing easier in the future.
