  • General Electric Back-End Motors

    I've got a bit of a problem. I have 32 GE backend motors and that pesky start switch isn't available anymore..hasn't been for a while, but I had a decent supply in stock til now. I tried to hook up the Quality brand SS start switch to a stator that just died on me but either I'm dumb or the instructions are not correct. Has anyone ever installed this switch to a GE backend motor before, and, if so, could you let me know how to hook this baby up correctly? If not, are there any other solid state switches out there that would work? Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

    Hi Gem.

    Solid State Motor Start Switch: Part # 610-309-042 is what you want. Works on National, GE, Westinghouse, and AO Smith backends. I have used many of them and they work great. I think they are a little more expensive, but they do work.

        i have national backends (use to have GE's in my old center) i too have had bad luck with "quality" backend switches. the "042" switch is much better for backends. it has a screw which you can personally adjust to get just the right amount of "umph" to start that pit.

          Amen to that, the solid state switches are excellent.
