    Many thanks for your request.

    Model Ryobi ECS-2040
    16 in

    I have some problem reading 2 first chars in serial no.,but most likely it is: AG 1838/05 or RG 1838/05.

    I hope a new switch will solve my problem. I have repeard it will glue but it will not release proberly now. (A litle bit danger involded by using it since I have to remove the wall connection to stop the saw)

    Thank you for your reply.

    No solution so far cause my model number (ECS-2040) and (AG1838/05) dont match the required format for model (00XX000X000) and for serial (0X000X00000) where X represent all letters and 0 represent any number and/or dashes

Where can I get a new ignition switch? The ignition key has snapped off in the switch, and I can't start the bike

You may not need a new ignition. Take the bike to a locksmith where they should have a broken key extractor tool, and then have them cut a new key from the broken piece of the key. It should not be too difficult for them.

97 expedition new window motor and switch still don't work

You have to use a voltmeter and make sure the motor is getting power. If no power at the motor, check for power at the switch, first make sure power is coming into switch, and then operate the switch and make sure power is going out to the motor.

Make sure you have a good ground on the door.

Could have a broken wire between switch and door, or between fuse block and switch. A wire can be broken on the inside without the insulation being broken

Broken light switch on fridge door

Any appliance parts store can get this switch.
Yes you can DIY. Take a butter knife and CAREFULLY pry the broken switch from the cabinet. Be careful not to scratch the plastic liner around the switch.
Remove the 2 wires, place them on the new switch and POP the new switch in place.
If this is a half-moon switch make sure it is installed in the correct direction.
