What is the purpose of the micro switch? Should the ilder bar tab contact it on the top or the bottom?

Van for Model Number mde9700ayw - 35001082 item# ap4045614

ANSWER Hello Van. The micro-switch 35001082 is used to shut the machine off if the belt breaks. The idler bar should be above the switch bar, so if the belt breaks, it drops down and activates the safety feature.
