First of all complaining to FixYa isn't going to accomplish anything. I doubt that the supplier of your device even knows about FixYa. Now on to your problem --- can you get me any numbers off the rocker switch? I'll do the research and get back to you. Use my original email address which can be found in my profile.

An update: Grainger has several fan controls with the same 10A capacity as the one you're looking to replace:

The screws holding the unit together are T-20 TORX screws; the center post makes them anti-tamper TORX screws. These screws are used in applications in which the manufacturer does not want the average consumer to attempt repairs. Please don't take this wrong, but if you have to ask about the "unusual 6-sided screw", then you shouldn't be opening the unit.
Unfortunately, when the heating element rocker switch gives out (3-4 years), it is usually about time to overhaul the entire iron (both the tank portion as well as the iron portion). Other things that can cause problems are the thermostat and the pressure actuator.
Contact A2A Consulting at 1-888-830-3563; they can probably fix the unit for you.

WOW !!! Finally You are dead on, absolutely 100%.... good work!!!.
Get only a genuine new switch button with spring from an AERUS Electrolux dealer and reinstall.
Then carefully reassemble the entire body and wiring harness.
Congratulations getting there.... you rate as an honorary technical genius in my book,...Your wife should be bragging about you to her friends. I am genuinely impressed and I`ve been fixing these since 1990. I bow in your presence.
PS while youre in there, check the rocker for evidence of fatigue, it is the more common issue
