Replacing the high limit switch?

The lower bed in our 2015 Voltage 3970 will descend but not raise and I believe the problem is the high limit switch. I've checked the fuse and it's fine. I've found the limit switch and can see the flap that, I'd guess, is what activates it. Up until now I've been able to jiggle the switch and the bed would raise; it won't do that anymore. Does anyone have any experience in this regard and/or replaced the limit switch? I really don't want to have to turn this over to the dealer.

If the switch has push on terminals they may have missed most of the wire when the terminal was crimped. Or, perhaps the switch itself has died. If the spades on the switch are sloppy the connection inside might be broken.
You can try and touch the wires together or jump them emulating the switch action to see if the bed will rise. If it will the switch is bad it's a simple replacement process.
