    Anybody had problems with the rocker switch failing on your Western salter control box?? Had a buddy that two of his failed. I was able to research and find a comparable switch for it. Re-wired it in and it works great. Certainly beats buying new at $300-$350, no?? Suggestions on whether it would be worthwhile advertising to repair bad boxes for about $95 each!!! I have e-mailed sponsors of this website asking for permission. Just wanted to check with the people who use them and get some feedback. Thanks for reading.
