I am trying to replace the switch in my space heater, but am unsure what type it is to do a search for it. It has three terminals one one side and 2 on the other.

This part is from a Duraflame heater (Model: DFH-NH-1-T).

CQC brand. Confusing markings. One side shows 250VAC, the other 125VAC, but at least you know it's 15A rating is clear. – Matt Jun 4 '14 at 0:23
It looks a lot like a switch you would find in a box fan. The main difference being that box fans typically use push-in connections instead of blade connections. – Brad Gilbert Jun 4 '14 at 16:09

I was able to find this site: http://www.czjinhe.com/english/content/product5.htm

Which show some information about your switch and might sell it. I used this query with google: zhongling pa66 xk-2 switch

PA66 identifies that the switch is made of polyamide (nylon) 6-6, so probably isn't necessary to uniquely identify the part. – ArgentoSapiens Jun 3 '14 at 22:01
@zersped I e-mailed the company and they responded with the following: "Dear sir:This switch is our patented products, but this switch is a copy one. www.czjinhe.com If you buy heater which use our switch, it will not out of order. I think you could ask the the heater service department to change one for free. Thanks and Best regards!" – Rick Jun 11 '14 at 11:17
I created a ticket to Twinstar which is the company that makes the Duraflame heater (Model: DFH-NH-1-T), but they responded with the following: "Thanks for the inquiry sorry to say we don't have any parts for this units/ thanks/" – Rick Jun 11 '14 at 11:19
