Repair/Replace switch

Postby saki » Fri Nov 06, 2020 1:17 pm

I have a chrome switch plate that has 2 dimmer switches and two light switches. The plastic button on one dimmer is split and does not work. I would like to buy a new plastic button but cannot find any on the net. Could someone point me to a supplier or are they not available as a part. Failing that I would want to replace the whole switch plate but again cannot find any for sale with that configuration. Anyone know of a supplier. Plate size is 145mm (w) x 85mm (h). I have attached photo.

The switch you have is made from different parts, it is a useful way of making the desired combination.
You need to search again, and use the word "grid switch" (There are several brands, you would be best looking at yours for a makers name)

Okay. Got it. Didn't know about them. Hopefully be able to replace the single dimmer control. Thanks for your help.
