Interior light switch replacement

I have a light switch that no longer works and I'm looking for a source to replace it. I have talked with Eric Olstrom and he directed me to Oregon motor coach's Greg "the guru", with no luck. Greg did give me some hope that he has had them on order for months but with only that when they come in, I would be notified. It's been months and I'm wondering if anyone may have found these anywhere other than our usual go to guys (ie. Olstrom or OMC). I have included some pictures, I have an 01 Magna and continue to battle to bring the coach back to original state.

I believe it's a "paddle" type switch with a green light indicator, three bladed back. These are all over the coach, some in a single setting as well as some with no green indicator and some duel settings. The one that is bad is the dual in the pictures. The switch itself is just under 1 inch long and .5 inches wide.

Im no expert on these but would like to get some extras in the case that more of them fail.

Thanks in advance

Those look like pretty standard rocker switches. Search for "illuminated rocker switch 12v green" on Amazon or eBay, and pick one the same size.

Kevin Waite in Junction City has been able to keep those mini switches in stock in the past. Check with him at kvn.wt.7629@gmail.com or 541-953-6162. They were made by JR Products (https://jrproducts.net/) and I've found they still have certain replacements, even if not listed on their website. Get the part number off the switch and you can try calling them to see if they have it.

If they are Sigma switches, there is an excellent source on eBay, bupps cards. I just ordered a switch for my basement wet bay heater.

I also tried the bupps cards contact and search on eBay with no luck...

The saga continues.!..

I was trying to find the switches some time back as I wanted a momentary contact on for my water pump switch located on my main overhead panel -- no luck period. I did have a couple of spare lighted single throw switches like you need but have since used them.

That looks like a Cole-Hersee mini lighted panel switch.

Finally found a source

Want to thank you all for the information. Kevin Waite has a nearly exact replacement for this switch. The only difference is that the replacement Kevin has on hand are 4 bladed rather than the original 3 bladed item. While not cheap, the amount of search time and desire to have the same look through out the coach without changing everything, I paid his price.

Thanks again and consider this thread closed and recommend Kevin for the replacement.

On to the next "small fly in the soup".

John

Timing and patience is everything. Currently on Ebay the switches are for sale. I'm going to buy spares while available. Just wish the momentary ones would become available.

Had a bit if time today and circled back to my water pump switch issue.

As I have not been able to find a replacement I took a closer look at it. It has two small leads that attach to two of the blade connectors externally. I re-soldered them and sprayed the inside of the switch and its functional again, and illuminating when on.

Photos are of the switch in the bathroom that was operating correctly, the one on the motherboard above entrance stairs was not functioning correctly but I don't have a part number for just the switch.
