Several years ago I bought a Shop Vac QPS 10. I have used it a lot
around the shop and yard.
My problem is the switch gave up the ghost and I am trying to replace
it. I went to a local part supply house and they said that they could

On all of the websites I have found, Shop Vac will gladly replace the
motor assembly with the switch for about $70 but state they do not sell
the switch separately.
This is not a realistic solutions.
Does anyone know of a replacement for the switch in the QPS10, or if the
part from Sears 82318-10 will work in the QPS 10.

Any rocker switch will do, If it is larger cut out the case to fit it.
If it is smaller, then put a piece of aluminum over the spot, drill it
out or cut it out for the switch size. Attach it using screws. Who
cares its a shop vac..
