Description:
This Rocker switch has 4 terminals and a compact design for easy installation. This authentic Delta replacement part is sold individually.

Switches are commonly replaced parts in power tools, handling all on/off and variable speed operations. They also have a role in electric breaking; they can momentarily reverse electrical polarity. Because switches use mechanical internals, they will degrade and wear out over time, eventually requiring replacement. Some common signs of a broken or failing switch are:
  • The tool will not start when you use the switch, or it requires multiple tries to turn on, until eventually it refuses to start at all.
  • The variable speed function and electric braking aren’t working properly.
  • Compatibility

    Broken Switch, would not turn on.

    Remove old switch by depressing wings on old switch.
    Remove four push on connection systematically, so they go on the same way as the old.
    Push new switch into hole left by old switch.
    Reconnect electrical connections.
    Reassemble switch, and switch plate onto lathe, making sure safety cover is correctly positioned.
    Plug lathe back in, and try.
    Worked great.
    I used a 1" putty knife to push the wings in on one side of the old switch, so they would depress equally. After that, the other side dropped out.

    Tool Type:
    Radial Arm Saw
    Parts Used:
    Switch - 438010170206S
    Repair Difficulty:
    Easy
    Time Spent Repairing:
    Less than 15 minutes
    Tools Used:
    Screwdriver, Allen wrench
    Original switch failed and was permanently in the on position.
    Unplug the machine first of course. Simply remove four phillips head screws on the switch plate, as well as the two allen head bolts that hold the handle on. This allows access to the switch terminals. Simply unplug the four wires,. Make a wiring diagram of where the wires are connected to the switch. and remove the switch. Reverse order with the new switch and you're done in less than ten minutes!

    Tool Type:
    Radial Arm Saw
    Parts Used:
    Switch - 438010170206S
    Repair Difficulty:
    Easy
    Time Spent Repairing:
    Less than 15 minutes
    Tools Used:
    Screwdriver, Pliers, Allen wrench
    Shorted and burned out switch
    Remove the draw handle and the front plate, remove the old switch, install the new one. There's some little clip keepers to compress, it's obvious and easy. Four wires unmarked, change them over one for one. Close quarters too, maybe have a look at the distance between the terminals before you close it up. They can be tweaked a little to give them some room away from one-another.

    That OEM switch is not that heavy duty for a 220V saw, and when it goes out, it's a short, burning plastic, and an open circuit breaker. If you're sensing something amiss, I'd change it and avoid the fireworks. It's inexpensive insurance. This was in use probably 15 years, but I did have it out once for burnt plastic, should have changed it then.

    I appreciate e-replacement parts, have had always perfect interactions. You have a very special place in my heart out here in the woods.

    Press the tabs on the top and bottom of the switch and pull it out of the housing. Replace the wire leads one at a time on the new switch. Then press the switch back into the switch box.

    Is the on / off switch on the delta table saw
    ( model # 36-978 )
    a press fit into the housing? Before I crack the
    housing that mounts to the saw, I thought I
    would ask the question. It does not want to
    push out easily. Any advise would be
    appreciated.

    Hello jmacmillen,

    The switch part number, 1344600 is an updated switch for a number of Delta products and will wire just the same as the older style switch.

    Hope this helps,

    It may perform the same function but the terminals are located different, there is no color, and labeling is meaningless.
