I have what I believe to be an early 1950's Westinghouse mobileair floor fan. Mine is the 4 blade model with the circular motor. fan is all original except for the last bit of the power cord. Last night when switching it off the power switch literally broke apart and fell inside the fan. I tried to reassemble the switch to no avail. The fan is 2 speed and the switch itself is a Leviton style roller switch. What are my options to fix or replace. Love this fan and I've got to get her running again.

You should be able to use a single pole double throw switch with center off.
