Help with a Craftsman Radial Arm Saw switch? Answered
I acquired a CRA from my Dad this last spring and the switch wasn't working right so I ordered a new one. Other than it is plastic it looks the same but the wiring for the new switch isn't like the old. The model of the CRA is TPC-2610B. There is only 4 wires on the old and the new switch. The guy sent me a new wiring diagram for the new switch. It doesn't wire up like my old one exactly. Looking at the back of the switch where the wires go in my old one has 2 red wires at the top close to the trigger and a white wire bottom left and a black wire bottom right. The new switch indicates to wire the black top right close to the trigger and a red one as well on the left and at the bottom below the black wire goes a red wire. Then the white wire would be in the same position as it was on the old switch. I don't know if this is right or not and do not won't to mess up my saw if it isn't. Maybe the old switch wasn't wired right, I don't know and I am certainly no electrician.The switches look the same. Somebody who knows more about this type of stuff might guide me in the right direction please!
