broken instamatic RV-162 fridge power switch

This is the switch that turns on 120VAC power for the fridge. It's a red rocker switch.

Does anyone have any suggestions on where to find a replacement?

Also, does anyone know how to remove it from the FRONT? It is inaccessible from the rear. I dread the thought of removing the fridge to replace a $10 switch. I have already tried removing all the screws on the front plate. The place where the switch is mounted remains firmly in place (which makes sense, since this panel also supports the valve for the gas). My only hope is that there is some kind of trick to prying off the bezel, etc.

Many thanks!
