help hooking up rocker switch for 120v ac motor; no drawing on the switch!!


OK, so what happened is that I was changing the cord to a longer 12ga cord on my Harbor Freight dust collector since the OEM one is too short. I am normally very careful about these things making a drawing before I touch anything just in case. Today however I was only going to take off the two connectors on the line-in one at a time and replace them with the new cord's connector but.... I was working off the first connector and slipped and yanked all 4-off (input and output side)!

The switch is a J-9301A rocker type but I can't find a wiring diagram on the web for this and there is no diagram on the switch, cover, operators manual, etc. Can anyone tell me either send me a pic of their switch hookup or a drawing of this switch or tell me how to figure out what goes where with a multi-meter?

Thanks!

Never mind; I took it all apart and was pleased to see how simple it was: it is now fixed.

glad to see you figured it out for yourself. While assistance (such as this forum) is a great source of help, nothing beats the satisfaction of figuring it out for yourself.
