I need to replace a metal plate that broke that makes contact to turn on and off the compactor. I understand that the part is now called an off - switch actuator. The old part number I think is 9871976. It does not look at all like the picture you show. Is this a replacement of a simple metal plate that looks like a door striker? I need help. I can not see paying this much money for a plate. I do not need a kit. I am not sure a kit will fit. It is help together by two screws. the size is 1/2" X 2". Thanks

ANSWER Jerry, The old part number 9871976 has been changed by the manufacturer to the kit part number W10342596 and will work for your unit. This was a manufacturers change and the metal piece cannot be gotten by itself.
