Asked by tarzankim July 25, 2018

Push harder. The On button requires a little force.


Asked by DAVID June 21, 2018

The switch I installed on my bandsaw had screw connections.

If power goes off will switch stay on when power returns or does green button have to be pushed again

Asked by Eric May 25, 2018

Yes, the switch will remain in the "on" position when the power comes back on. I wired mine up and tested it as I found that sometimes these were mis-labelled as "magnetic." It is not.

Need help with wiring. From the motor I have three wires green, black, and white. Same from the o...

Asked by Badger June 26, 2017

Green is chassis ground , they should both be connected together and screwed to the metal frame of the device you are wiring. If the wires are in a plastic box they can just be connected together. For 115 ( standard house voltage) the white wires can be connected together like they were before. One black (power in) to really any of the four screws and then power out ( to device) to the screw that matches vertically ....one on bottom right one on top right. you can also wire the white wires the same way if you want. One of them top left one of them bottom left. It is a dpdt switch that is double pull double throw. when you activate the switch it connects the top screws to the bottom screws

How do I get ahold of the company that makes this?

Asked by Support October 27, 2016

I would contact you local Home Depot for assistance. I'm not sure how to contact the manufacturer.

Start button is stiffer than I would like but the important one is much nicer than original equipment on Jet table saw. Had to modify install plate to allow body to connector "box" to fit. No wiring instructions were included .... long time searching on iphone to find that... original equipment had a grounding screw this did not, but did have screws that I thought it might be that weren't after looking it up.

I like the quality of the construction. The On button and Stop button are nicely arranged but require a little too much force for safety purposes. That's a minor point but I mention it since many of my other tools with emergency stop buttons don't require as much force. The big issue and the reason I cannot give it 5 stars is that I feel as a safety switch it should break contact upon power down if a circuit breaker trips. Otherwise when the power returns, as with this unit, the tool will start up again without pressing the On button.

I should of checked the size, this is a big switch, I returned it and ordered a smaller one. The switch and the smaller one felt well made, I used the switch to bypass the difficult to reach switch on my old table saw.

It doesn't come with any instructions on how to wire it to your tool. I found some on line, but when I wire it and try to turn on my saw, nothing happens. The "on button" doesn't feel like it's working.

The part was an exact replacement for the switch on my bandsaw. I like the paddle shut off.

It was not at all what was pictured. No paddle, just two buttons. I threw them away. Lesson learned.

The PowerTec paddle switch works well. It’s exclusively for my router table (120-VAC. I installed the PowerTec paddle switch into a 4-inch metal electrical box with a 1-gang square metal mud ring. The PowerTec’s mounting screws are metric, so in order to secure it to the mud ring I had to use 2 screws that I took from an older toggle switch. Also, the electrical connections, on the backside of the switch, are specified for spade lugs. You will need a crimper and stranded wire to accomplish this. PowerTec did provide a wiring diagram that shows connecting the black wire and the white wire to the switch -- Yes! This is correct. Follow the wiring diagram provided and all will be well.
