Sears Snow Blower - won't start with electric starter.

I have a Sears 30" 11 HP snow Thrower model No. 536-881114 with electric start. The electric start currently dosen't work. Nothing happens when the button is pushed. I had a Sears tech look at it when I had my tracter serviced and he determined that the switch inside the unit is defective. The motor appears OK so it comes down to the switch. When pushed in no noise, no power seems to be coming through, tested with a meter. Sears tells me )through the tech) that the whole part - switch and motor will cost $450. That's crazy when it's jsut the switch. It's also crazy when the entire snow thrower only cost less than $800 new. I hope that you can point me to where I can purchase the switch alone. Actually I found the part as a replacement (Starter kit
PART NUMBER: 6218) for $180 with probably shipping and sales tax that will bring it to $220.00. The switch should cost @ $8.00.

Substitution: 33-738

I look forward to your response.

@Robert: There is no battery on this snowthrower with this type of starter system. It's a 110VAC type starter system.
