Judge Roy is right on again. My question to you, did you use the correct replacement? If you have a timer delay, it may take a different switch. Always clean the connections before putting in new replacement parts, especially electrical. The older ones develop electrical corrosion around the connectors over time and a lot of times, cleaning of the existing parts is all that is needed to do fix and/or repairs. 000 emery paper and a good electrical cleaner such as as-atone spray will work clean the connections.
