its just a momentary switch... and its powering with the up motion since it closes...

the only way to check it will be for isolate the power wire and test it while you push forward on the switch

I read this yesterday and today, and my apologies if I am off base, I just can't help thinking you are not activating the switch properly. It doesn't push straight up. It kind of rotates up. PIcture the top of the switch as a pivot point, and you want to rotate the bottom of the switch rearward and up (more up than rearward). They are tricky until you do it once or twice and understand how it works.

Sorry if I am off base here, but this is easy for you to try.
