If you look at the top of the switch where the operating knob is, you will see on the old switch the operating rod goes into the switch at the bottom of a funnel shaped moulding.
that is where the water gets in, with the door open in the rain.

the new switch has a rubber cover moulded onto the operating rod that covers the opening, therefore stopping the water ingress.

an easy spopgap cure is, don't open the door for too long when it's raining
