  • Centrifugal switch installation

    Curious to see how other people install there centrifugal switches. I can get it on with minimal to no play but other times it will split open or have to much slack in the switch and will not work properly.

    New ones never seem to fit like the originals. Did you ever try Solid State Switches?
    Give me a hammer and some duct tape and I can fix it!

      We had one in stock that i did try, unfortunately i had a terminal to close to motor case i didn't see it arched and blew an ssr switch in the mp chassis. On the other hand the new centrifugal switches that don't fit right i have been using locktite as a fastener and it seems to be working very well so far.

        For westinghouse combos I never had much luck either but then I started craming the large disk westie BE motor on the shaft-thats tight as a frogs butt and stays put!
