All of those switches are available new from Eaton. I have part numbers out in the bus, I'll be out there later tonight and I'll grab them. The ones I bought are exactly the same switch so they match, too.

Fortunately, they could be accessed from underneath while an assistant carefully lifted on the switch. It came out easily, and it appears that many/most of the switches could be accessed similarly without unscrewing the panel.

Now for the question: while researching replacement switch options on the WOG, as the Chicago switch company no longer appears to be an entity, the recommended Eaton switch is listed as AC only as was the broken removed switch. Can anyone tell me why Wanderlodge used an AC switch on a DC circuit? Does it matter?

Thanks
If you look up the specs on your particular switch, you're likely to find a footnote saying something like 8A 14VT. I believe the 8A = 8 amps, the 14V = 14 volts DC and the T = Tungsten. So the switch in this hypothetical example would be rated at 8 amps of high inrush current at 14 volts DC into a Tungsten load (such as an incandescent light bulb).

Thanks for the info, some of the switches in the series look like they conform to that standard, not all though, specifically not the one(s) that look like they match what I have. I am interested to see what part numbers badandy has.

160611E is the momentary on-off-on, like what you use to set the cruise control.
160011E is a simple on/off.
160111E is a on/off switch, but momentary on.

I don't have a part for the double-switch versions, I think they don't make them anymore.

Allied Electronics and Onlinecomponents both have these. I got mine from Onlinecomponents a while back. There are the original switch, 100% perfect match in every way.

Thanks so much for all the help! It appears that all the Eaton 1600 series switches have more or less the same specs. Aaand, it does appear that the on-off-on switches are discontinued. The part number is 160411E. Found them at “Newark”. Ph# 800-463-9275 for anyone interested, their stock # is 23F004, $2.79 ea. Bought 10, we’ll see how they work.
