Open Question

I cannot obtain a defond CYM-1213-A switch for my Toro leaf blower. i want to install a comparable variable-speed rotary switch--13A, 125VAC. any way to jerry-rig a suitable replacement?

There are 4 terminals/ leads on the old switch [one doubled up black] with 3 wires [black, purple, blue]connecting to a CHN 418 transistor or resistor [sorry, I'm not an electronics whiz]. is the resistor absolutely necessary?

Hello,

The black goes to the L connection the others are a guess. You can do this two ways. Connect the colored wires in any sequence and then see what switch sequence give you high and lowest, the other one will be medium. Once you determine that, mark the wires with a piece of masking tape as high, medium and low. Otherwise you connect them, turn power on and use a multimeter to see which color gives you the highest voltage and which gives you lowest. Since you aren't comfortable using live wires and a meter, go with the first option and use the process of elimination to find the wires giving you the speeds you need to find the highest and lowest. Next, you need to determine how your switch sequence works. First pull has to give you highest speed. so you may end up wiring them in reverse if your first attempt is backwards. There is a reason the first pull needs to be highest, it powers up the motor so you can then chose a lower setting. A low setting first will over tax your motor and wear it out eventually as it has to work harder at first.

Let me know if you need further clarification and perhaps this is all you need to get fixed.

Regards,
Worldvet
ps I checked on the Internet of a wiring diagram and I bet you did tok all to no avail.

SOURCE: Replacing a pull chain 3-way ceiling fan light switch

OK .. the thick black and white are the power for the fan , are there also white wires on the lamp sockets ..??
The thick black wire should connect to the black wire on the switch.
The small black wires connect to the red and blue wire on the switch .. two small black wires each .. that should give you a position for 2 lights , and 4 lights, on the step switch .. but there should be white wires from the lamp sockets connected to the thick white from the fan .

please respond .

Please Vote !!

Where can I buy a Defond CPU-2113 safety switch for a Toro Blower/Vacuum?


If you do not use the Blower / Vac for Vac you can cut out the the reset switch, it's only when you get foreign material in the impeller using the Vac stopping the motor, I cut out the switch. As you look at the Defond switch (side with writing you see a white wire and a black wire side by side. mark the black wire with a small piece of tape 1-1/2 inches from the connecting lug. Cut all wires off the switch. Strip wires back 3/8 to 1/2 inches. Use heat shrink tubing
and slide it back on the black wire with the tape, same thing thing with the black wires on opposite side of the switch. Use a end to end splice as opposed to a parallel splice because of wire routing space..Splice the white wire with the black with tape, Then the other two black wires. using heat shrink tubing to cover the splice. Good idea to take a picture (smart phone) so as to see wire routing after you separate blower halves, very little wire routing space. Make sure motor is seated in it's nest before joining halves together do not use Vac if you use this fix. Mine works just fine, save $60+ bucks.

Toro blower-vaccuum stop working


Replace the variable speed control with a toggle switch. Cut the 2 power wires that go to the big rotary knob and wire to a toggle switch that you can install by drilling a hole near where the power cable enters. Works great and full power all the time.

Stopped abruptly won't restart


tThe flywheel is indexed to the crankshaft with a soft aluminum "shear" key, when the blade is stopped suddenly the key is broken instead of the crankshaft. The flywheel will need to be removed and a new key installed. Make sure to clean the shaft and flywheel mating surfaces so they fit tightly or the new key won't last too long.
