By chance was the front cover removed to service the water pump?The switch is in there and may have been mis-aligned

As I remember,the switch can be turned 180°.and put back on.The switch does not have a stop,it can be rotated round and round.
Easy to get it wrong unless you verify it's neutral function before reassembly.
