Need push button light switch for 25 yo Rangemaster hood

Hi all,
I need to replace the silver pushbutton light switch on my mother's 25-30 year old Rangemaster white hood. It's 30" wide and I could not find a model number. The light and fan button switches are silver and the one for the light just gave out.

Does anyone have good online source for parts this old? This is a very old school looking part and I'm sure they are common. I haven't taken a photo yet but can if it would help.

Thanks so much!!!

Got It!

What you need to do is go to and see what they have. I'll bet you can get an old Rangemaster push-button from there. If you don't see it on there, I'd just get a repairman to come out and try and fix it. That's all I've got, and hopefully it will work. Days and days will go on, so I'd do it soon.

Check a hardware store. I also remember seeing them at big box blue years ago, but I think they stopped carrying stuff like that.
