My 10 year old (out of warranty which ends at 8 years) blender on off switch broke. The unit still runs great, I don't want to trash it. I just need to replace the switch. But I don't know what kind of switch it is. The switch is not labeled, and Blendtec doesn't sell replacements. I have reached out to them for the part or model number to no avail.
Found this StackExchange question about a labeled switch being able to handle the power/current but my switch isn't labeled.
My question, is there a way to calculate how much energy the appliance would draw from its label, and the calculate what type of switch would be safe to use with it?
The label on the blender says: 50-60Hz 120 a.c. 1560 WATTS
