Rewiring On/Off switch on band saw

Rate this topic

10 posts in this topic

Like the title says. I took the switch off to replace the switch but when I put the new one on and than plugged it in to test it the unit would pop the circuit. Thought I wired it wrong so I changed the wiring and same thing. So I put the old one back in and same thing. What could I have done wrong?

On a plug the round is ground, the big blade is neutral and the little blade is hot. The neutral and the ground are wired directly to the appliance and do not go to the switch. The black (line) goes to one side of the switch and the black from the appliance (load) goes to the other side of the switch. The switch interrupts or connects the black hot lead.
