Should this power switch be switched On/Off in quick succession,
in some cases it will fail to switch On at all. This is due to
functioning of the internal protection circuit and is not a breakdown.
Consequently, should such a symptom appear, switch Off power
for a moment, then switch On again after waiting 1 or 2 minutes.
