I have a portable ARB single piston compressor over a year old and the switch has broken. Here is a repair guide:
Step 1 - remove switch. This can be done with your fingers - just squeeze the tangs behind the metal plate. Record where wires connect and disconnect wires.
Step 2 -Once you have removed the swich gently price the rocking lid off (you need not open the switch up like I have)
You will now see why the switch is not working - the little actuating lever has broken off.
No point gluing it - it will surely break again.
Step 3 - Drill a small hole, add glue and then tap a small screw in. Then saw head of screw (I sawed the head of first and twisted in with pliers)
Step 4 - Reassemble.
All good to go.
