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 .
I dont think I would try a 110 volt fan switch on a 220 unit

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?

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).

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 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.
