Why did my switch lose the tactile feeling?

ID: FAQE20077E



The contact dome may be deformed or damaged which leads to the loss of their tactile feeling. Please check the operation of the tactile switch.


Since the contact dome of a tactile switch is pushed indirectly, the force is directly applied. Keeping the switch strongly pushed in may degrade the contact dome and/or damage the switch. Pressing the switch diagonally may damage the plunger and/or deform the contact dome.

Quick tips

Examples of problems caused by pressing the switch can be found on The SOLUTIONS [Operation Switch], which shows "Mechnism of failure occurrence" and"Checkpoint for prevention".
