RE: Parts for CPAP machine
The sale or transfer of prescription-only items such as CPAP machines and masks is not allowed for legal reasons. Now, when we get to parts for masks we're afraid of the legal issues so we stay away from that. But here you're just looking for advice on how to repair a CPAP machine with a broken switch. I think we're safe.

I'm going to move this thread to the main forum where it can get more attention.

My first thought would be that if it's a simple on-off switch, I'd bypass it and put an inline switch in the cord, or something like that. Unless you're trying to actually replace the faulty switch with a new or used one.

Depending on the age of the equipment, you might find a repair shop for your machine. Or you could donate it to a sleep apnea charity run by Supplier #2. See: http://www.apneaboard.com/forums/Thread-CPAP-Supplier-List
