    Those switches aren't particularly good, and should be replaced unless there's a really good reason not to.

    I've used a couple of those. Couldn't find a schematic anywhere, so I just figured it out. I remember drawing a diagram on some scratch paper or something. You can see all the contacts pretty clearly and what they are doing when the switch moves.
