I went all over town looking for a switch. finally found two lighted switches at grainger carling technology part no. 1A824. ground down the outsides glued both together jumped across top and bottom terminal with copper wire and it seems to work fine now.only time will tell. i hate our throw away society which the junk imported in from china seems to foster.
