I'd like to bend this mesh into a curve. Basically almost like a U shape. I've set an empty to be the origin of the modifier but the result is skewed. Its like as if its being twisted. I just want it bent. enter image description here Any suggestions on how to bend this?

More detail on the shape i want : enter image description here Its a switch and i would like it to follow the curvature of the large object.

Here's the file to this specific part

You need to align the empty orientation with the object orientation: Select the empty, shift select the object, go into the N panel and right click into the Rotation values > Copy All to Selected:

Now rotate the empty 90° on its own X axis (RXX 90) and play with the SimpleDeform Angle value until you're good:
