Default Marantz 1060 power switch

I inherited my brother's 1060. It all seems to work fine except the power switch does not stay depressed. I removed it and tried to bend the thin metal cam arm thingy into a shape that would work, but it quickly stopped working again after I buttoned everything up. Anybody know where I can buy a replacement switch?

How about a photo. I have a lot of old push switches of that era, the kinds used in consumer audio products as power switches, but no idea in the world if any are what Marantz used in that model. Always nice if the exact thing is available.

Thanks for the reply! Here are 3 shots of it. The embossed printing on the top says:

461W
TV-3
ESB-1150DS

The label on the side says:

Matsushita
Snap-Switch Issue No. 1-545

The distance between the 2 threaded holes is 29/32", and the distance between the outside of the 2 mounting ears (that contain the threaded holes) is 1.25". If that helps give you some idea of its size.

Have you used tuner cleaner on it yet? the shaft looks gummed up from the pictures.

That black gummy stuff is some type of adhesive that holds the cylindrical button onto the shaft. And I did spray the internals with WD-40 to see if that helped (my can of tuner shower was empty, which doesn't surprise me since it's probably 25 years old). The problem is that thing piece of metal that rides in a slot. It's bent out of shape or something is worn, and kind of a bad design in the first place. I tried bending the protruding end to help it work again, but that didn't last. My local hi-fi store guy says this was a common problem with these switches. So somebody's gotta have a supply of them, or a decent replacement.

I believe that switch is the same one used for the power on function in Marantz 2230/2245/2270 receivers of the same era - I think your amp is the same as a 2230 without the tuner section. This is a common failure part & the failure mechanism is as you experienced - no latch. I replaced the switch in my 2230 many years ago. They are widely available - about 10 on ebay for $25 buy it now pricing. Good luck!

25 bucks is a ripoff
You can buy a switch from Digikey that will fit that unit
for less than 5 bucks and it will be better than the original.

Perhaps, but after trying for several minutes to figure out what search criteria might find the switch I need, I gave up. It also doesn't help that a lot of the products didn't have a photo. Nothing matched keyword "marantz", whereas the ebay search did.
