Ok, I had to disassemble my Black and Decker electric lawn mower (mm550) switch and power apparatus because the switch had gone bad. I have an extra light switch in the garage, so I thought that I would just use that. The question becomes, however, how do I connect the wires?
Here is a picture of my setup. The mower cable is shown alongside the old push button switch. There are 4 wires coming from the mower. Orange, red, black, and white. The red, black, and white used to be connected to the old switch. The orange is connected to part of a male plug-end. The other part of that plug-end(connects mower to extension cord), you will see connected to the light switch. These two plug-ends will be the source of power.
I have connected some wires as you can see, but I really do not know what I am doing, so I stopped and decided to come here and see a) can this be done and b) if so, what wires should be connected where
I hate to throw this mower out. It is old, but still mows a great lawn. Many thanks for your help!
