I have a VH4 w/ an unresponsive switch on the footpedal. Switch for channel 1 will not engage or change channels. It does not click the same way as the others. Can anyone recommend a replacement part? I can remove and resolder, I just need to know the type of switch to order. Any help is greatly appreciated! Thank You

Helps if you mention what sort of foot switch you're using.

I'm using the stock Diezel VH4 footswitch.

There isn't a stock VH4 footswitch.

These are the Diezel footswitch products.

Do you own the Columbus?

Thanks for the replies. I didn't realize there were that many options. I attached a pic of the footswitch that I have. It appears to have the same switches as the Columbus as far as I can tell.
Thanks Again!

If I remember correctly I think a Claring switch will work.

Do you think it's a single pole single throw (SPST) or a dual pole dual throw(DPDT)? My guess is the SPST, but I just want to make sure so that I order the correct one on the first try.
Thank You for your reply

I'd ask Peter to be sure. I can't remember off top of my head.

Hope you get it fixed. That's a rock solid footswitch. I use mine on a Herbert.
Do believe I got that from you Pauly

Yes you did John. It's a great switch. Built like a tank. Glad it's still working great for you.

I bought a Carling replacement switch, model #110-P. It is a single pole-single throw switch. It will turn channel 1 on and off, but does not allow the other channels to be engaged until you turn channel 1 off first. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated!

You need a momentary switch.

I can be wrong but check the Carling 110-PM-OFF.

Cheers,
Peter

Thank You, Peter! The momentary switch worked and it was the same part number you recommended.

Is Carling 110-PM-OFF normally open or normally closed ?
The web is mixed up about its actual function..
Thanks
