Looking to change this A/C disconnect box.

Good morning. I am looking to change this A/C disconnect box has the plug that I turn over to turn this on and off has become difficult to insert. Would someone mind pointing me in the right direction as to what replacement I need to purchase. Yes, I will be killing the power to this before replacing. Thanks!

Cheapest bet is a 60 amp A/C non fused disconnect at a big box store, usually less than 15.00. Or look online.

Thanks for the reply. If you wouldn't mind confirming: https://www.homedepot.com/p/GE-60-Am...0RCP/100674085

Also, Can I assume that it is fairly easy to change?
Thanks!

The function is interchangeable. In other words you can use any disconnect but make sure the wires will reach to the new terminals.

The one you linked to is fine.

They didn't have the GE one in stock...
