Refrigerator 12 Volt Switch

Hi, anyone out there know where I can get hold of a 12 Volt switch for my Electrolux RM 4261 refrigerator. We are in North Yorkshire.
We couldn`t get it to switch over after our trip away this past week. On investigating, we have supply to the switch with engine running but the switch feels as though it`s doing nothing inside.
We are going away again soon and would like to get it fixed before we go.
The refrigerator works fine on 240 hookup & gas.

(Had to Edit as I`d left the wrong title in)

rather than a switch, do you mean a relay that operates the 12v to the fridge when engine running. this is a common relay, should be available most places.even Hlfords.

I dont know if this will be too late for your trip, but if you're going to the Peterborough Show Dometic will have a stand there.
Last year I broke my 'fridge door lock and a new one was £17 !! I had a chat with the chap on the stand and he gave me a new one free of charge, so you never know....
If you're not going to the show there are a lot of web sites that will supply your switch online, try
