Reset button won't reset

The reset button, like the ON/OFF switches found on some air compressors, are electro-mechanical.

They wear out, they get contaminated, they break.

If, after being bathed in oil, yours doesn't work any more, it's time to pull it out off the casing and see if you can clean it to work again, if the oil is the problem.

If not, then I would think it's time for a new one.
