This part repairs a broken Start Button from a GE Aurora Dryer.

  1. Disassemble the control panel and make sure your button/switch doesn't work because of a bent Button-Pin.
  2. Print the part.
  3. Glue it to the PCB Board around the tactile switch
  4. If necessary, put a spring around the button-pin to aid in pushing the button back to a neutral position.
  5. Reassemble the control panel.

Print with the Conical Side down on the build platform.

There are 2 files, basically the same thing. The one marked 'trimmed' is in case the tactile switch on your control panel has another component right next to it (like the capacitor in the photo is right next to the tactile switch)
