North Star Horizon reset switch

I suspect the reset switch on my North Star Horizon no longer functions; I get 0L on the multimeter on both switch positions. The switch was made by Carling Tech. One position is the default, with the other temporary. I’ve had no luck trying to locate it, although I was able to locate a Carling power switch for the system

Does anyone have an idea as to what model it is, or perhaps an equivalent?

Thanks

Try flipping it back and forth a number of times. It is likely that the grease inside is a little old and dry.
It is better to keep it original.

I tried that and finally got about 3.5 ohms on the temp side, still 0L on the other. Maybe that’s how it’s supposed to be. Hitting the temp side closes the switch and pulls the RESET* line to ground? I couldn’t tell with the Compupro CPU-Z mounted because the IC running RESET* failed. Waiting for a new one
