Medieval Madness broken switch

Why do switches always break at the worst possible time ?
Was playing Medieval Madness yesterday, had a very good game, 4 blue lights were already on..
and then suddenly the microswitch inside the castle didn't register anymore :-(
The gate was open but a ball shot trough it didn't register anymore. It's the same switch that registers a pinball that's being locked, so I also couldn't start multiball anymore (and only needed 1 shot).
No use continuing my game as I couldn't get any big points anymore..

Turned the machine off, removed the glass, lifted the playfield.. one wire had broken off.
1 minute of work to solder it back was all it took to make this pinball machine play well again.
