REPLACE TOGGLE SWITCHES

Please be sure that the power cord is unplugged before servicing.

Before we start, please make sure the machine is not plugged into the power source. Utilize the lockout tagout procedure, and refer to the EZV manual.

Remove the Metal Switch Plate

Remove the metal switch plate on the back of the sander handle using the #2 Phillips screwdriver or drill. There are 4 screws holding it.

Remove the Locknut

Use the 9/16" nut driver or deep socket wrench to remove the locknut that holds the broken switch to the front of the sander handle. Take care not to lose the locknut or the plastic spacer, as these will be used with the new switch.

Disconnect the old switch

Disconnect the bottom wire from the old switch using the flat-head screwdriver. Make sure to keep that metal jumper, as you will need to use that with the new switch.

Install the new switch

Now, reconnect the free wire to the corresponding lead on the new replacement switch. Use the metal jumper taken from the old switch. Please note that the switch itself is supposed to be upside down with the 'off' position at the top. Repeat this action with the remaining top wires, also using the metal jumper from the top of the bad switch.
