Default Monitoring system test switch broke

I'm trying to figure out how to remove the monitoring system panel from the wall so I can replace the test switch. This is the fresh, grey and holding tank levels and battery level monitoring panel.

There are no screws showing. There is a little hole at the top of the panel that maybe a small screw driver can be used to unlatch it?

Or maybe the bezel around the panel needs to be pried off?

I can believe the refrigerator would need to be removed to replace the panel.

Any help would be appreciated,
Thanks,
Steve

Hi Steve - does your panel look like this one? https://www.amazon.com/KIB-M21VW-Mic...14564288&psc=1

If so, I think you would just pry the front plate off at the tab on the left side. That should expose the mounting screws inside. You'll need a small flat blade to get into that tab I suspect.

However, this panel (and mine) do not have a "test" switch. It DOES have the water pump switch though. If yours is different, please post a picture.

Thanks Jack,
My monitor panel looks exactly like this but has a HiLo logo:

You can barely make out the little slot at the top of the fresh water scale.

Hopefully since yours and mine are built by the same company, KIB, the catch/latch is just different variations on the same theme.

Thanks again for your input,
Steve

Yes, your panel is different than the one I linked to and that looks like mine. Sounds like you've got opening it figured out though, and it's cool you've found a source for the switch!

That little slot DOES look like the way to open it.

yes the little slot at the top pushes down on a tap. Although the plastic is so brittle now the bezel actually moved up to release the monitor panel.

My local RV part counter had the switch ... I was shocked!
