    Normally open. I changed the lid lock and solved the problem. The one that was bad seemed to ohm right the last time I checked it, but still did not work. I was thinking it had been backward as in closed until the lid was open. Not the case the last time I checked.

    I thought I had posteda link to the lock.

    The bi metal had released at the connection point inside the switch/lock and I tried soldering it. I don't trust it. Still would not lock. I may have put it back together wrong.

    The other had overheated and melted the plastic piece the bimetal fit in to open and close the lock. The metal on that one had started to burn through the switch/lock casing when it burned through the plastic part. The metal being curled like it was let it get against the plastic housing and start to melt it.

    The first switch/lock did not have this curl in the metal. Looks like it is supposed to have the curl in it to work the lock when power is applied.

    Yeah, I like to take things apart and see how they are put together and try to figure how they work when they go bad.
