You can find a replacement for the switch at a Sears store, hardware store, or builders supply store.

Take a picture of the wiring of the switch or make a drawing so you can rewire it. Remove the switch and take the old one to one of the above stores.

Look on the old switch for the amperage it is rated to carry. Be sure the replacement switch is rated for as much or more amperage than the original.

These switches are usually in the hardware department of the store and there are many variations. Select a switch that will mount like the original with the correct amp rating and it will work.

James did not read the whole question and gave a useless answer, and should restrain himself in the future. The site moderator should remove his answer. Jimmy K also did not read the question but his answer is a bit less useless. Had he read the question or bothered to research it himself he would have discovered that THE PART IS NOT AVAILABLE FROM SEARS. The rest of his advice is sound about finding a substitute, but incomplete, and Jimmy K should restrain himself in the future.

Mike, the switch for the grinder is not available through Sears Parts Direct as the original part number. Sears, and many hardware stores and builder supply stores carry these switches in bulk and that is what I recommended to the customer. Thanks for your input.

OK I'll bite this back once (last time). Jimmy K should just stop. Sears has no way to cross reference equivalent switches, effectively rendering the part unavailable through Parts Direct. Hardware and builders supplies will not carry such an esoteric part. They carry HOME LIGHTING switches, not appliance replacement switches. Radio Shack is also now out of that business. Since the fit into the grinder switch plate is critical, and the original switch manufacturer also no longer offers a precise drop-in, I finally found a suitable replacement at W.W.Grainger which was slightly larger in both dimensions and required some file work to make the hole larger. It is also a ROCKER switch unlike the original TOGGLE switch (it actually looks better). Their stocking number is 2LNA7.

I did not receive the sketch you sent of the wiring connections.

If you will go to www.searspartsdirect.com and enter the model of the grinder, you can see a parts diagram and list. In the top left corner of the page is a wiring diagram for the grinder.

The wiring diagram (schematic) is not real clear but it does show how the motor leads connect to the relay and the on off switch.

If you take the schematic and compare it to the actual grinder parts I think you can figure out how to connect the wires.

I hope this helps.

Jimmy K your response was not helpful at all. I had already gone to that website and found that it was such poor quality I could not use it. I don't know why you can't find my sketch. It shows very clear on my post. I did just finish wiring the motor by trial and error. Lucked out I guess. It works fine now. If you need a coppy of the revised sketch I will gladly send you a copy. Thanks Ancil
