If You have economy 7 water heating and a separate immersion heater
If one of these develops a fault it can trip the main fuse this is possibly why you are thinking that it might be the switch
Backer complete economy 7 unit with immersion 3kw approx £80 plus fitting if it is not the fuse and the complete unit needs to be changed

Hope this helps as I fitted a Backer recently only to find that the fuse had gone

Kind regards
