If you examine the switch you will see that the operating knob is fixed to a shaft that goes down into the switch, on the old switches there is a small gap between the shaft and the switch body which allows water to enter the switch if you open the door when it's raining. the design of the switch acts like a funnel.

the replacement switch has a rubber cover that goes down the shaft and over the body, sealing the gap.

so, if you can see a gap you have an old switch.

hope this helps ( and makes sense)
