Hm. if the it is a 'control switch' do you mean it is the main power switch, or something else?

If it is the main power switch, you should be able to solder it in yourself.
Does it take 110VAC and 60 Hz.?

Actually if you have the new control switch, you should be able to orient it, disconnect it, and put each connection onto the corresponding parts of the new switch.

Does your unit not function correctly, or not at all with the old switch?

Thanks for your time.

I have a Jet JWL-1442 woodturning lathe. The on/off switch has given up the ghost. My question is how do I fit a new one.

Dear David,
I wish I were there to help. However...
If you never get it out, a last resort might be ( what I have done in the past) to take a tiny tester (that you touch on a piece of wire that will tell you if it is "hot" or not.) and find the hot wire going to the switch. Turn off the power and cut that wire close to the switch.
Mount a separate electrical box on your lathe with an on /off switch and use that one to power you machine on and off.
God bless your efforts.

Brake lights not working

the brake switch tells the shifter lock system that you have your foot on the brake so it can go into gear-so this must be working in the old switch-how many wires are connected to the brake switch-follow the wires up under the dash to see if anything has been cut or rubbed through- Denny

Have a 2006 dyna wide glide foot brake light brake light hand brake does not replaced lever wherte is the brake switch

The front brake switch is located inside the right handlebar control. It is a plunger type switch. The correct way to install a new one is to solder the wires on the new switch to existing wires from the old switch. Cut the wires about 2 inches or so from the old switch. Be careful when reinstalling the front lever or you may damage the plunger on the new switch.

I have a set of hand controls for a 95-06 Harley with no diagram how Do I figure out witch wire from the switches go were

If you're simply replacing the controls with other controls, the color coding of the wires should be the same. Simply unplug the old wire from the plug and insert the same color wire from the new set. Now, if you're trying to install a later set of switches on an earlier model bike, you need a wiring diagram of BOTH the new switches and the old bike so you can figure out the color codes on the wires.

Good Luck

Brake lathe chattering bad

There's a lot of reasons why a brake lathe chatters during a cutting operation. They range from lack of maintenance, adjustments, cutting speeds, wrong cutting tools and so on and so forth.

Be a little more specific.

What kind of machine are you using?
What are you cutting? (rotors? drums?)
Are you using the proper silencers?

Come back with some answers please.

Long story but I had someone "attack" my T-72 Freezer and I'm trying to figure out what they did. I think they tried to replace the defrost switch with a non standard switch and stopped half way through...
Go to this web site. Be sure to have the serial and model numbers. You can request a wiring diagram from the tech line. This is most likely your best place to start. True uses a variety of different devices so I would do this first.
Let me know if I can be of more help after you get diagram.

My Mitchell does not show the proper diagram. I need a diagram that shows ALL the wires to the brakelight switch.

I finally got the diagram by combining system diagrams from the 94-96 mitchell. Dumb way to do it. Piece of cake after that. Some idiot installed an aftermarket remote start and pinched a wire. took a while to vibrate through the insulation and ground itself. Corrected it and now everything works fine. The factory connectors at the headlamp switch also will deteriorater over time but all you have to do is unpin the connector and direct connect with solder. Lasts forever. I've been doing the same with a lot of GM underchassis connectors that go "green". If you're careful, you can cut the connector and expose whats left of the connector blade that is embedded in the plastic. Depin the appropriate wire or wires, solder direct, then embed in GOOD silicone. Milspec advised if you can get. If not, good old ultra black permatex is about the best. I saved two customers a bundle doing this on buick and olds Rendevous at the all wheel drive solonoid. Turn a $800 dollar job into $150 job.

Park brake switch

If you have the old firmware then all you need to do is ground the parking brake wire..

if you have the new firmware(just bought the system) a toggle switch is involved:
1 - connect e-brake wire from dvd unit to the switch
2 - connect a ground wire from switch to the unit chassis(any good metal grounding surface will do)
3 - pop in a dvd, toggle the switch back and forth 2 or 3 times depending on what wire you placed where...and voilaa!! your dvd system should work in motion!!
