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.

Gilbert, search the internet for the make and model of the exact switch that you have and I’m sure you will find a supplier.

The Safest Way to Test Electrical Devices and Identify Electric Wiring!The Non-Contact Electrical Tester
This is a testing tool that I have had in my personal electrical tool pouch for years, and is the first test tool I grab to help identify electrical wiring. It is a Non-contact tester, [amazon.com], I use for the detection of Standard Voltage in Cables, Cords, Circuit Breakers, Lighting Fixtures, Switches, Outlets and Wires. Simply insert the end of the tester into an outlet, lamp socket, or hold the end of the tester against the wire you wish to test. Very handy and easy to use.
