    Help, Has anyone replaced the switch in their porch light. My switch is bad and I'm having trouble finding one. I hate to replace the whole light due to a switch.

    My black switch in on the very bottom of the light assembly

    thank you

    Its just a small rocker switch. Maybe its time to upgrade to a nice LED they are not that much money.

    It is a really common switch and easy to replace. Sadly the days of Radio Shack are gone so I don't know where to send you to get the switch. You might just look around at junk in your house and find one actually.

    O'Reily's auto has the switch, but a new LED porch light is only $10 on Amazon. My new one was brighter, and takes far less power than an incandescent. Came with a spare lens as well.
