The button top is threaded onto the switch to allow replacement of the light. This is not necessary because it is LED illuminated, but requires that the plastic be fairly thin. The mushroom top with ample purchase for fingers invites people familiar with heavy-duty pull-to-clear e-stops to pull on it instead of twist, which they did, repeatedly, breaking the plastic. The button needs to be re-designed so that people can't pull on it but instead are clearly invited to twist it. If I bought another one of these, I'd remove the button and saw off the rim before installing it.
The push button cap breaks easily. I have replaced 3 of them just going through the qualification process for this machine. For the price of three, I could of purchased a more durable one and saved the future expense of replacing these again and again and again.
Outer button strips and comes off rather easily. Not very sturdy product. Go through them here like crazy. At least the price is right.
The button heads break fairly often and need to be replaced.
