It is wonderful that you have the manufacturer's name and part number if you want to know where you can buy one. Yessiree BOB! That manufacturer's name and part number sure comes in handy.

If you were to ask an electronics supplier like Digikey, Newark or Mouser which part you were looking for, you'd give mim the manufacturer's name and part number. Sure comes in handy. Yupper!

And if he couldn't find the exact manufacturer's name and part number he'd probably be able to find a suitable substitute part by cross-referencing that manufacturer's name and part number. Maybe even look up the parameters of the device from the data sheet for the manufacturer's name and part number and find a reasonable substitute.
