Peloton's response after requesting service to replace the damaged On/Off power switch:
"We have received a response from the warehouse - but, unfortunately, we are unable to send out this part by itself. The power switch is part of the manufacturing process and upon damaging it, there is internal wiring that would need to be redone in order for it to function as normal. In order to replace the power switch, it does appear that we will have to swap the base in its entirety. We truly apologize for the inconvenience."
Since any damage from "moving" a Peloton tread is not covered under warranty, we were looking at a cost of at least $2000 to buy an entirely new Tread base. To this, I say BULL S%!T.
Replacement switch ordered through Amazon for less than $10.
Switch is rated at 16A 125VAC/250VAC.
Multiple manufactures make these rocker switches. Just make sure you get the correct rating. Link below to the one I ordered which matched the original switch size and specs exactly.

Replacing the On/Off rocker power switch is very straightforward.
Unplug the power supply cable to the Tread base. VERY IMPORTANT
Remove the existing rocker switch from the Tread base by pulling straight out of the Tread base. You can use a flat screwdriver to gently pry the switch out by sliding the blade under the edges of the switch. There is not much slack in the wires so the switch only pulls away from base an inch or so.
Before disconnecting any wires, make careful note of the wiring orientation and locations where each wire is connected. There are four wires connected to the switch. Two incoming power supply wires (Black#1 and White#1) and two outgoing wires (Black#2 and White#2).
The incoming power supply wires are on the Lefthand side of the switch in the photos below (under the "Off" side under the "O") closest to the power cord connection and circuit breaker reset button. The outgoing wires are on the Righthand side of the switch (the "On" side under the "|"). The outgoing wires connect to the Tread motor and electronics bus.
Recommend marking the two Incoming wires (Black #1 and White #1) with a Sharpie for identification.
Remove the wires from the switch by gently pulling straight off of each post. I used needle-nose pliers to grasp the wire connections at the base of the clear plastic connection cover. Be careful not to damage wires or connectors.
Connect new switch by reconnecting wires in the EXACT SAME
orientation and locations. (If you mess this up, you will fry your Tread and probably get electrocuted when you try to turn it on.)
The same color wires must be on the top and the same color on the bottom of the switch. (i.e. white on top side, black on bottom side, or vice versa)
The incoming wires must be on the left side (under "O") and the outgoing wires must be on the right side (under "|")
Helpful Hint - Connect the longest wires first then the shortest ones. Grasp wires with needle-nose pliers on the clear plastic connection cover and gently push them onto the posts. Do not damage the wire or connection.
Push the switch back into the hole in the Tread base. It should gently snap in place.
Reconnect power cord and turn switch on. You should be good to go.
