Question about Stihl Hs 60, 61 Hedge Trimmer Stop Slide Switch

1 Answer

Need a new Stop Switch

The toggle switch on my HS 45 is weak. Not much of a click when turning on or off. During operation it sometimes shuts off only to find the toggle flipped on it's own. I am pretty mechanically inclined. Where can I purchase a new one online? Thanks!

My troybilt bronco riding mower won't start the gas n oil r fine when I turn key it has no fire


possibly a bad starter switch which has a built in kill switch. There is a wire that goes up to the coil that is used to kill the spark when you shut it down and also goes in the safety circuit to prevent it from starting unless everything is in the right position. sometimes you can unhook the wire and still run safely. if it doesn't shut down when the switch is in the off position a toggle switch can be wired in to ground the circuit if you need it.

Wipers won't turn off


The wiper motor is defective and needs to be replaced. Inside the wiper motor is a "Park Switch". When you turn the wipers off, the park switch sends a signal to shut the wipers off. If the park switch fails to operate then the wipers will continue to run, unless the ignition key is turned off. You will also need to inspect and test the charging system. Where you had no issue before the rain, you may only need to charge the battery. After the battery is charged it should be load tested, to be sure that it is fine. Also test the alternator and make sure that it is charging correctly (@14volts). If you need more information please write back. Good luck.

Generator will not stay running


The toggle switch automatically resets all faults when it is turned to the off position. I would turn the toggle switch off, turn off the breaker on the generator and then turn off all the loads in the house except a few lights. Turn the generator breaker back on, then turn the toggle switch back to automatic. If it starts and stays running, you were overloading the generator. Turn on other loads slowly and keep track of what is on so you don't overload it again. If it still does not stay on, you may have a problem with the panel. Let me know what happens.

Crimestopper SP501 car alarm/remote starter will not respond. The 2 way one doesn't work, the sidekick does.


You need to program your crimestopper sp-501 key fobs, you need to program both the 2-way and the 1-way key fobs, during the same key fob program session. First find your valet button/switch, when you have found it, turn your ignition on and press the valet button four times, if you have a toggle type switch for a valet switch, toggle it up and down four times, when its in remote key fob program mode, it will honk your horn 4-times followed by 4-parking light flashes. Once your have done this press the lock button on the 2-way key fob, horn will honk and the 2-way will sing a little song to confirm programed, then press the lock button on the 1-way key fob the horn honk will be your confirm programed. turn ignition off this will exit you from program mode. then shut all doors and test key fobs for operation functions....hope this helps you out

Water will not stop running during cycle. the code says it water pressure but you have to shut off the water to make it stop


It could be one of two things. If the water runs into the machine even when the washer is turned off, you need a new water valve. If the water only comes in when called for then doesnt stop you need a new pressure switch and possibly a new pressure switch hose

Pump starts switching between high and low by itself for 45 seconds, then shuts off.


Thank you for posting your question here on Fixya.com.


Is this a two speed pool pump with a toggle switch as part of the motor or a spa pump plugged into a control that uses relays to switch from high to low?

If it is a pool pump you will need a new toggle switch.

If it is a spa unit, replace the relay.

Mower deck PTO switch will engage when pulled but stop when rele


The PTO switch has failed. There is an internal spring and plastic parts in toggle switches that keep them in the actuated position. It's not practical to take the switch apart to fix it, but replacement switches are readily available - probably $12 - $20. It's a good idea to disconnect the negative terminal from the battery before you do any electrical work. Be sure to put the wires on the corresponding terminals of the new switch. Good luck! Please rate if you find this helpful, thanks.

I have a moultrie d-40 game cam it will not turn on. i have put new battaries in and the only thing that turns on is the laser aim


make sure switch operator lever is properly engaging switch toggle...if front cover has been removed, it is sometimes hard to get this lever to "snap" back onto switch fully in proper position.
