Item specifics

Used: An item that has been used previously. The item may have some signs of cosmetic wear, but is fully ... Read moreabout the condition

The following switches are optional extras for my used motors.
It is not recommended to buy these as a separate item, as wiring to motor is difficult!  See DIY below.
Read all the information on this listing before buying!! If not sure ask me a question.

The Following switches for use 1/3 HP motors may be ordered with your motor.

$6.00 for off/on switch near the motor (Buy one switch)

$6.00 for two speed switch (Only) (Buy one switch)

$12.00 for forward reverse switch (Only) (Buy two switches) (Wiring in DIY book listing (pix 3), see DIY at end of this listing)

$18.00 for both forward/reverse switch and 2 speed With Off/On Switch (Centre off, up High, down Low) (Buy three switches)

The switch will have exposed terminal and a box will need to made to cover them or be incorporated in to the motor cover.

There is no postage on these switches if ordered with a used motor

I do not recommend 2 speed switches for motors with heavy starting loads.  Reason: the motor starts on the fast speed and when at its speed it changes the slow speed.

The Following switches for use with Capacitor run motors (about 1/6 HP motors) may be ordered with your motor

$6.00 for forward reverse switch with centre off (buy one switch)

A normal motor has two power wire (A,N)  + an green/yellow earth wire.  A reversible motor has 3 or 4  or more power wires to the motor with connections inside a terminal box.  Note swapping the two power wires will not reverse the the direction of an AC motor.  The wiring for both types of listing is shown in the pictures of this listing.
