  • TESTING? Solid State Starter Switches

    Is there a way to test these things on the motor or other wise to see if they went the way of the devil? The type I have are the orange cans. Motor are Nationals. Thanx

    Re: TESTING? Solid State Starter Switches

    The most reliable way to test any type of solid state start switch is to put it on a known working motor and if it starts and runs, the switch is ok. If it doesn't, it's not.

    You can measure ohms across the blue and red and black wires until you're blue in the face, but the best test is a real one.

      the orange type (610-390-042) yes you can test, tho i forget sitting here at home, if you have the instructions in your shop it is printed there. i think its L&S should have continuity & L&R should Not. or maybe its the other way around in reverse. if your still wondering tomorrow, ill let ya know
