1. An oil return mechanism, comprising:
a base, a control switch, a first blocking ball mounted in the base, an elastic member mounted between the first blocking ball and the base; wherein the base has a liquid storing cavity, a liquid returning cavity, a communicating cavity, a first communicating opening communicating between the liquid returning cavity and the communicating cavity, and a second communicating opening communicating between the communicating cavity and the liquid storing cavity;
wherein the control switch is adapted for placing the second communicating opening into open or closed position so that the communicating cavity and the liquid storing cavity are connected or separated; wherein the first blocking ball moves between a blocking position and an open position with an external force;
wherein when the first blocking ball is in the open position, the whole first communicating opening opens, and thus a fluid flows from the liquid returning cavity to the communicating cavity;
wherein the first communicating opening is positioned in a communicating portion of the base;
wherein when the first blocking ball is in the blocking position, at least one liquid guiding gaps are formed between the first blocking ball and the communicating portion of the base; and wherein the liquid guiding gap communicates between the liquid returning cavity and the communicating cavity;
wherein the control switch includes a second blocking ball mounted in the base and a valve rod;
wherein the valve rod is adapted for pushing the second blocking ball in a sealing position for sealing the second communicating opening; and
wherein the valve rod is threadly coupled to the base.
