Does this sail switch look okay?

    I'm servicing our Atwood 7916-ii heater to treat a mystery problem. The RV dealership gave me a replacement sail switch (see unplugged switch in picture). And it has a much smaller "sail" than the original (plugged-in one in picture). Has anyone replaced this before? Does the new one look adequate? I'm worried it won't have the full strength to close.

    Does the old switch test good with a multi-meter? If it does, it's no need to add an unproven component that can cause a problem.
