Description:
This Trigger switch has 4 terminals and a locking mechanism on the trigger. This authentic Porter Cable replacement part is sold individually.

rnrnSwitches 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 needing replacement. Some common signs of a broken or failing switch are:
• The tool has stopped functioning – it refuses to start.
• The tool operates intermittently, requiring multiple tries to turn on, until eventually it won’t start at all.
• The variable speed function and electric braking aren’t working properly.rnrn3.5" L 7/8" Depth 3/4" W

Tool Type:
Router
Parts Used:
Switch - N224532
Repair Difficulty:
Medium
Time Spent Repairing:
30-60 minutes
Tools Used:
Screwdriver, Pliers, awl (to spread contacts to release wire to reuse)
The plastic trigger broke which when turned on, it would not release to turn off.
1. Removed four screws that held "D" handle cover.
2. Unscrewed switch assembly from "D" handle.
3. Removed wires from switch.
4. Tried to place same wires from broken switch to the new switch. At first, I had the wires to the new switch in the same basic position as the old wires and switch. When turned on, the circuit breaker snapped off.
5. I looked at the old switch and noticed that the wire positions were not what I thought. I then paid attention to the numbers "1" and "2". The switch is a double pole switch so the wires had to be inline correctly.
5. A couple of wires were short so had to improvise to replace the wires. The awl was used to spread the contacts to release them from the original wires to use the contacts again on the new wires.
6. With the wires in the right position, I did a quick test before putting everything finally together. It worked and worked fine when fully assembled.
7. This is a favorite router and it was great to have it run correctly again.

    Bandsaw switch replacement
    My band saw is older and the part available is not an exact fit but I was able to adjust the wiring within the saw and its now working perfectly. There was some difficulty in timely shipment of the part but one phone call to the company and the problem was fixed! Very courteous service person handled my issue professionally and to my complete satisfaction. Good Job!
    Guest - October 29, 2019 Verified Purchase
    Worked as per description. Made the tool go.
    Easy to find. Easy to order. Order arrived in a timely manner.
    Bruce - May 17, 2019 Verified Purchase
    Worked just as advertised.
    The only reason I didn't give 5 stars was because I don't believe it doing that, but as I said, it worked just as advertised and was shipped quickly and efficiently and with as little pain as is imaginable.
