I will be replacing the fan switch in an old 220 window unit.  I have on hand a fan switch from a relatively new 110 unit.  In comparing them, the only difference is the number of connections, the 220 has an econo mode.  Is there a problem or something special I need to know or can I put this one in and tape up the extra wire.  Can I post pics. somewhere or a link if I need some clarification?

Thanks,

Joanna, Gulf Shores, AL

I agree, Most 110 volt a/c switches have a line and neutral on them where 220 volt a/c switches have 2 hot lines ie: 220 volts. i would also advise against trying this swap .

Thanks, Guys!

Now my problem is the parts #.  I can't find/get to the model #.  All I know is that it's about 12-15 years old, it's 220, and the front plate has Whirlpool-DesignerStyle. 

There are 2 #'s on the backof the switch,  ASR8173-461 and 1158669.  It also has a GE logo.  Could you tell me which one of those?   Haven't found anyone locally handling parts for a window unit so I may not be able to compare.

The switch was working but the switch knob plastic stick thing broke.  Is there a way to fix that w/o replacing the whole part?  Superglue?

Thanks, again.

The part# 1158669 is the correct part# to order.

Here it is: CLICK HERE to see and/or order.

Here's a parts break down of a unit like yours that uses the same part, (part ref# 26 is the selector switch).

More thanks to you Guys!

And Willie,  you gave this Senior a great confidence boost when you let me know the part #.  I've been concerned about ordering the wrong one and armed with the specific #, I'm gonna try calling around locally again.

I apologize. I was not thinking and I'm not very savvy when it comes to web manners regarding things like this.  The puchase from anywhere won't be made  until/unless I get the mold and mildew in it destroyed.

Sinecerely!

you could use a dremmel and a small cutter wheel and make a slot in the shaft just big enough to get a small flat blade screwdriver in it . just for a getby

Thanks.

I have a Dremel and cutting wheels but might need a thinner, smaller dia.  It's broken almost flush to the switch.  Can't use it as it is, sure will be worth the effort.

Peace.
