The best source for a replacement switch is at the link below. Keep in mind that you need to note the wire colors on each termination. If not, you'll have a problem making it work.

r u there?
Electrician: Mike G., Master Electrician replied 1 year ago

Missed that. Remove the switch and take it to a home center for a match. Also, if in hand you may see a part number.
