    Your new one on right is definitely oriented correctly, as for your old one, who knows what happened, whether it was assembled incorrectly by the manufacturer, or someone decided to turn it around?

    Thanks, I thought the new one was right. The old looks new or recently repaired, but I switched it :) Thanks for the confirmation.
