DW272 switch wiring

I recently purchased a new trigger switch for my DW272, removed the old one, put in the new one...and must have gotten a couple wires in the wrong push in holes. It snaps and crackles when I hit the trigger now. Where can I find a wiring diagram for the trigger to show me which one goes where?

    I have the same problem with my DW511 hammer drill. The new switch does not have the same holes for the input leads. Pop a breaker when I tried.

I would go to the mfr's website and download or look at the wiring breakdown. All these companies have breakdowns online

How do you replace the trigger switch? I have a new one and have taken the saw apart but am having problems with how to attach the new switch wires.

I have not disassembled my Remington Pole saw but mine has a two-wire circuit (no ground) so it should not make any difference which wire is connected to which post. Preferably, though, you should match wire colors. There should be some kind of connector block linking the trigger switch to the incoming power wire and the wire that runs to the saw motor. Attaching the new wires should simply be a process of reversing the procedure you used to remove the original trigger switch. If you cut the wires to remove the old switch, hopefully, you left enough wire end to strip them and solder the end of the new switch to the old wire.

I have a sony kdf 655wf55 t.v, I'm not getting a picture. Turn the t.v on and the lamp comes on with audio but no video. The screen lights up and thats it. Put a brand new lamp in, but still the same....

It may not be something serious. In the lamp compartment there are a couple of plastic strip kind of things that hit the door switch when you close the door. Even though you have closed the door correctly, it is very easy for these strips to miss the switch. Please open up the lamp compartment and adjust the strips that the strips hit the switch when the door is closed. If it does not resolve the problem let me know and we will continue the diagnosis.
PS: Bad rating = No further help!

My dw272 type4 don't work with new brushes

in most cases we have seen with dewalt drills the fault is corrosion around the power points to the motor they snap off if this is not the case then it will be the trigger switch

:o( you're going to have to pull the radio out to see what they did. They probably added a wire to an inappropriate circuit to power the new radio or amp. I will paste your factory wiring colors below. If you now have an extra wire, that is the likely culprit. Trace it to see where they hooked it in. If it isn't going to the the fuse box and using an extra slot, make it so by connecting it to the cold side of the fuse and put an approprite size fuse in. To determine the fuse size to use, you can compare the wire gage to other cold side wires and use a fuse the same size as you see being used for similar gage wires. Let me know if you have more questions.

Westinghouse Lighting 3speed Ceiling Fan Switch 7707500: I just replace the speed control switch in my Hunt...

Typically the old and new switches have no relative relationship to each other .. One way to figure this out is shut off the power and then using the black power wire attach each speed wire to it and turn power back on to observe the speed .. mark the wire with the speed 1, 2, 3, .repeat this untill all the wires are identified .. . then you can put the wires on the appropriate terminations on the new switch ..

Bosch 1590EVSK Problem

No safety or reset. The problem is likely to be a bad connection somewhere inside the jigsaw or dust around/inside the trigger assembly. If it is new or recently purchased, seek a replacement. If out of warranty, you could try disassembling it and checking for loose wires, or using an appropriate multi-meter to check where the current is absent and go from there.

Replacing a power cord for a Dewalt electric drill

some of the dewalt drill switches have a one way trap (like) for the wire. you push the wire in and the harder you pull it gets tight on its self. your wires go in the bottom of the trigger look right on top of each wire there is a small **** (no bigger then 3/16) for a flat head screw drive. In the **** you will see a small lever, it needs to be turned at the same time pull. It will help to have a friend.
