    With Alpha printed on it would assume it was made by Alpha Electronics. I would contact one of their distributors. If that fails get the name and generation of the machine controller and call them. Whenever asking for help on a machine repair list the machine make and model and the controller make and model.

    What control is on the machine? They spelled ‘spindle’ incorrectly...

    Good catch, now I will assume it isn't a Mori Seiki with a Fanuc controller.

    Looking at the pic I think that maybe those buttons were replaced? Maybe that is where the spelling got messed up

    Are you sure that your fault is the switch? Have you tested all the diodes individually. Can you open up the switch to examine/clean the contact pads and wiper - it looks simple enough.

    As a last resort it wouldn't be too hard to replace it with a standard 1 pole 12 way switch and a little PCB to hold the diodes.
