Anyone familiar with switches? Trying to replace this one

I’m not sure on the type of switch this is. Can anyhelp help identify? It’s from ITW and it’s 12mm diameter. When it worked, you would push the button and it toggles the light on. Is that a momentary switch?

Check it with multimeter for continuity. Momentary have continuity only pressed.

You might need to unsolder the wires and back the holding nut off to remove the switch (will need to do this anyway when you put a new one in).

then read the model number from the switch.

With that info you can find the datasheet for the switch to know its type, current and voltage rating, etc.
