Rocker switches

In case you have not yet found the switches, look on Arrowhead Electric's web site:

www.carbonbrush.com

The switches are from the 20TC series of Klixon circuit breaker switches.  The number after the dash indicates the amperage rating of the switch.

Thus, my 10-amp pitot heat switches carry the part number 20TC4-AK-10.

I had the same problem that you did.  The cover broke, but the underlying switch still worked.  Sadly, they don't sell just the cover, so I had to buy the whole switch.  The good news is that you can buy directly from them.  The bad news is that mine was $275.00 plus shipping.

Hope this helps.

I have the same issue, the outer cover breaks in two. My E & I guy says they are the same as the metro aircraft. He is going to find out where he gets the covers from and when he does I let you know.

But apparently they are obtainable.
