Smoking turn signal switch 444-544 1964

Hi all!

I recently replaced the (previously) non-working turn signal switch on my '64 544. Now the blinkers work as they should! I have a new problem, however.

Sometimes when I turn the switch on, smoke starts pouring out from the steering column cover (accompanied by the all-too-familiar smell of "burning electronics") The blinkers continue to work correctly, and it isn't popping a fuse.

I've taken everything out and confirmed that it is wired in correctly, and that the wires aren't touching each other in an inappropriate way.

It seems to happen mostly when engaging the right turn signal, for whatever it's worth.

Any ideas? I'd like to make this switch work if possible, as I'm fresh out of replacements.

Thanks as always!
