    Ancor Rocker Switch Indicator Bulb - Can they be changed? How?-gctid363633

    I have numerous Ancor Marine Grade Rocker Switches on my control panel.

    [img]/media/kunena/attachments/vb/666652=25658-anc-554032.jpg[/img]The indicator light on a couple of them are burnt out but the switch is still functional.Despite lengthy internet searching, including here on BOC, I've not been able to find a technical reference which tells me how to change the burnt out bulb.Does anyone have any guidance, links, pictures, videos, quips, anectdotes, insults or other useful direction they might share?Many thanks in advance!

    The bulb is integral to the switch. With effort you likely could get it apart to get to the bulb. But I have reservations in saying this would be easy or be a simple repair.

    I fix almost everything since that's my profession. But in this case I think replacing the switches is a better choice.

        The Ancor switches are your standard Carling Contura II rocker switch, searching for those will get you more info. There is a LED replacement guide on THT that would get you somewhere.The rocker switch actuators are removable, so if you replace them and you have rocker switches with a printed legend, you can swap them over to the new switch body rather than having to find an exact replacement.

            but alas, they do not come with changeable bulbs. So, it's a 7$ replacement. Easy pop in to be honest so Jim and 2850's instincts are right once again.
