Cheers, bumped it lol. Yeah I will keep looking for a diagram online nothing showing in the product manual.Welcome to AAC! Hard to tell much from the picture... Pumped it? Google for a manual if you can find make and model # on the label? Sometimes appliance parts houses have better exploded-view drawings than the manufacturer. Good Luck!
Obviously, such oversights/errors really bug me.Wikipedia
A radio button or option button is a graphical control element that allows the user to choose only one of a predefined set of mutually exclusive options.
Thanks for your help. It might be easier to order a new one by the sounds.It can be hard to figure out how those interlocking mechanisms work. That long saw tooth bar is meant to prevent you from pushing two buttons at once. When one button is pressed and you press another, the first one is released. The two other brackets, I haven't a clue where it goes. If you can figure that part out you should be able to reassemble it. However, having damaged it (bumped or pumped) chances are it might need additional help staying together. Otherwise it's just a simple switch. Actually three switches with a single off button. Low, Medium and High.
After you figure out how it goes back together you might have to glue it closed. Or zip tie it closed.
I do not think you will find an exact replacement, except from the manufacturer or an inoperative donor unit. That means, rebuild or modify.
Originally, I thought they were called "radio" switches as that is where they were used. Apparently, the modern name is "bank" switches.
EDIT: Make that Radio Button Switch
Obviously, such oversights/errors really bug me.
Are there 4 wires or 5 wires? Is one button for "off," and the others for some function? If only 4 wires,I suspect one is off and the others are for some function.
Surplus sales of Nebraska (https://www.surplussales.com/switches/swpushb-2.html) has some 4-button bank switches.

You'd be surprised how with a little trial and error you can fit that switch back together. Don't give up on it so quickly. Once you know how it goes back together and it's working properly then seal the switch unit back together. May just take a morning's exercise to put it all back together. Besides, ordering a new switch may be harder than you think. Getting the RIGHT switch may be problematic. It all depends on who's taking your order.Thanks for your help. It might be easier to order a new one by the sounds.
