    Tony, you were offering a replacement switch ‘for a small fee’. Do you still have one I could buy rather than going on the open market please?
    I have the same problem on a NAP180 and although I dismantled and reassembled the switch so that it would work when horizontal it wont do so reliably when in the correct orientation.

    Rocker switches are notoriously slow to make and break, leading to arcing - O.K. on a resistive load but poor on a big inductve load - as you have found. Strangely ordinary 13A switched sockets often seem to last well - a test bench I used for nearly three years gave no trouble using the same socket switch dozens of times every day to switch a couple of 500 watt power supplies - knocked out three PSUs though.

    Hi James, I was actually offering one of my 500 amps "For a small fee", in a jokey sort of way! Sorry, but I'll hang onto the switches I bought (see link on page one) just in case.
