Part identification: Worn down switch
« on: June 05, 2017, 08:07:16 pm »
Greetings

The hood in my kitchen is failing me, its the on/off switch that's worn down. I'm usually the parts procurer/finder at my job, but my searches come up blank.

I hope someone knows the markings on the switch.

Thanks in advance

Pry Open it up from the plastic slot slowly and clean the contacts with deoxit.

Manufacturer is either Schadow or Schurter

It's unlikely that a mains switch is suffering from contact oxidation, more likely is that the contacts or mechanism are worn out. A worn and arcing mains switch is a fire hazard.

Hi all

Thanks for the inputs! Didn't think to clean the contacts. However the wifu managed to kill it completely today, and that left a skid-marks on the PCB.. It was a bad solder on one of the pins! So a bit of solder managed to salvage the hood.

What a crappy circuit design they made though.. All wires a connected on a single board with spade connections..

Thanks again!
