Craftsman Bandsaw Model 119.224000 119224000 Craftsman Bandsaw

A:

Thank you for your question. I am sorry you are having a problem with the band saw. If the motor will not turn on, I recommend checking it for binding first. If you can turn the motor by hand, unplug the unit and remove the motor wire connection cover. Once the cover is removed, check the wire connections. If they look ok, I recommend checking the voltage at the motor. To do that you will need a volt ohmmeter. If you have a meter, turn it to check voltage. Then connect one-meter lead to the black wire and the other to the white wire. Once you have the leads properly connected, plug the unit in and turn the switch on. You should have a reading of 120 volts. If you have 120 volts, the motor is defective. If this is the case, I recommend removing the motor and take it to a local motor repair shop. They should be able to repair the motor for you. We usually do not have a problem getting replacement parts but the manufacture of the motor no longer offers the motor. If you do not have voltage to the motor, I recommend checking the switch.   I hope this is helpful. Please let me know if you need further assistance. Thank you for using Manage my life. Mark T.

Craftsman Ban Saw #119224000: Original lock switch #02a0540 has been substituted to #02a1116. The former switch had two

Thank you for your question on how to wire the new switch on the band saw.

The original switch part number is 1-HY18-32A It has changed to part number: 29432.00.

The new switch has four connections.

To wire the switch for the black and white wires from the power cord and the motor please view the switch from the front of the switch in its installed position on the saw.

The top left connection will be white from the power cord and the top right will be the black connection from the power cord.

To connect the motor wires please connect the white wire from the motor to the bottom left connection and the black motor wire to the bottom right connection.

The green ground wires should be located and connected on the chassis behind a small panel.

I hope this will help and I am sorry that I do not have any pictures to show you.

Please let me know how it turns out.

Q:

how to hook up wires to switch #29432.00

A:

Thank you for your question on the replacement switch for the bandsaw.

We had to source a new vendor for the switch because the original vendor is no longer providing any support.

I am sorry but I do not have either switch to look at but I believe from the description that you have given that the two bladed contacts on the old switch contact was for the neutral wires and the neutral power cord wire. One comes from the motor and the other from the light.

Are all the wires the same color, or are there black and white wires?

The other side is for the hot wire off the power cord through the switch contacts for the motor and the light.

You may have to have a volt/ohm meter to find the switch circuit in the new switch. It really is not different other than the contacts are in a different location from the old switch.

I believe that that this is a double poll single throw switch with one switch internally for the light and one for the motor but they turn on and off at the same time.

I tried to include a larger picture of the image below and then you can blow it up so you can see it better.

If this is not helpful and you do not feel comfortable with wiring the switch yourself you may want to have an electrician help you.

I am trying to get a picture of this switch from the vendor to see if I can help you more.
