Power switch advice needed (Saturn/dreamcast); Hardware electrical replacement

My power switch in my Sega Saturn recently stopped staying clicked in when depressed so as a short term fix I replaced it with a power switch from a spare Sega Dreamcast - it powers on and there don't appear to be any issues but I really don't know if I should be doing this long-term does anybody know if this is something I need to cease immediately or if I'm ok to keep running my Saturn with this switch installed until I can purchase another?

Thanks!

That should be fine. A switch is just a mechanical way to connect two points.

I was a little concerned because the box on the saturn switch says 144v I think? And the DC switch is 230-240v
Appreciate the reply dude
