Locating A 3 Rocker Isolating Switch In The UK
Background: Gilbert, a Homeowner from Irvine, United Kingdom
Question: I have a rectangular 3 rocker isolating switch in my fitted kitchen that controls my fridge/freezer, dish washer & washer/dryer. The rockers are embossed with the names of the appliances. One of the rockers has snapped off & I can no longer turn on my dish washer. Do you know where I can get a replacement switch? I have tried several electrical suppliers with no success.

Additional Comments: This is my first time I’ve tried it.

    I have a outlet that has 220 and 110 on it and I cannot find one to replace it, or do they still make them?

    • Dave Rongey says:

      Hi James,
      Please describe the outlet your trying to locate, such as a NEMA number, Voltage and Amperage ratings. Most replacement outlets are available with few exceptions.
