A new arrival came without the switch and accompanying screws.    Please help a broken fan...  :D


Not mine - a pic from the net:

Please disregard this request for the time being.
Incredibly I believe I've found the exact correct new old-stock switch on eBay out of Germany for under $20, shipped.

Fingers crossed...

My switch from Germany turned out to be a skosh too large  :(
So I'm back in the market...

Not mine.  I think it looks like this.

Hi Tom.  I think I have what you need. Check the pictures to be sure. The fan on the right is a 42X548 that I have pictured for comparison. The one on the left is a 257599 with a good switch and screws. They look exactly the same to my untrained eye. I will sell you the complete base of the 257599 for $25 plus actual shipping cost. I'll leave plenty of head wire attached so you can splice or do whatever instead of risking damaging the switch.

Steve, thank you so much for this offer and taking the time to converse via PM - I'm looking forward to receiving your switch in the days to come!!   :D
And thank you to everyone else who wrote as well!  Obviously an excellent association community here.  I have been blown away with the generosity, kindness and fun from members here since signing up as a guest recently - so much so that I'm joining as a full member for 2018!   :D

Thank you all once again.  May you all have a thankful Thanksgiving day, today...

It looks just like Jim's pic (thank you again, JIm)!   :P



Thank you again, Steveo.  And thank you for sparing me the trip to Home Depot and Menards to peruse screws (that probably aren't there), followed by giving McFar dough for 98 screws I won't be needing.  Funds heading your way...

Rest well - the fan Gods are smiling upon you tonight...   :up:
