Rotary switch to open window shutters

Junior Contributor

Rotary switch to open window shutters


we have this rotary switch in our bedroom - used to open and close the window shutters.  

I am unable to turn the knob to open the window - seems to be stuck. 

is this available in Bunnings and is it easy to replace this as a diy?

please advise.

Hi @bm,


I am not aware of us stocking a similar switch mechanism.


Replacing the switch mechanism requires electrical work and is not a D.I.Y. project.


Let me mention a couple of our knowledgable members @bruce93 and @HandyAndy. They perhaps would know where to get a replacement switch or they might advise that contacting an electrician is your easiest option.


Please let me know if you need further information or had questions.




See something interesting? Give it the thumbs up!

Hi @bm ,

thanks for the tag @MitchellMc 

i don't recall ever seeing one at bunnings, and i don't have any experience with window shutter controls personally,

however, i would highly suggest contacting a local electrician, or at the very least speaking to the (or any) window shutter manufacturer/installer.
this would likely be a proprietry product, or something that can only be purhcased at a window shutter manufacturer or electrical wholesaler.
