CR-6 SE Power Failure

My 1 month old CR-6 SE lost power just after pulling filament out.  I preheated the PLA and then pulled the filament out when the unit died.  No power.  Is there a reset on the power supply?  Other possible causes? Fuse is still good.

Check the main switch.  Do you feel a real click when you move from off to on?  If not it is a bad switch.  There were issues with them when the printers first shipped.

So I checked and I do NOT feel a real click when moved from off to on.  Can I get a replacement switch?  Looks pretty easy to replace.

I have bypassed the power switch and the unit powered up and runs okay.  I have ordered the switches.  Thanks.

I just purchased and opened the CR-6 yesterday.  My son assembled and it doesnt turn on - no red light on power switch or lighting on display panel.  After reading this string, I wonder about my power switch.  Any other suggestions?  My first test will be to bypass the power switch and see if it gets power.

I think that's the best approach and it's easy.  Mine clearly did not have the snap when you hit the switch so I pretty much knew it was the switch.  If not, next up is the power supply.
