tw125 stop bar switch and fuse

Recommended Posts

Ideally yes, but 25A is far more than the stop circuit can need to switch a relay. I looked at the Spectrum plant spares and it seems to be Pizzato FR501, which is 10A rated switch - I would say that is pretty typical for industrial type switches.

I don't know why they have a 25A fuse, I guess they haven't had a lot of electrical problems to make them fit more fuses in the design.

That's mad, 10A rated switch and a 25A fuse, no wonder it isn't taking the fuse out before the switch is knackered.

 

Now I know that I'd go for warn wiring as well.

The fuse is on the ignition box of the petrol honda engine, not on the timberwolf part of the chipper. I cannot find a fuse anywhere on the timberwolf

Give me a direct link to the wiring diagrams.

 

Edit: it doesn't matter where the control box is mounted, the wiring for the switch on the machine will still go back to that box.

I'll have a look, did you catch my edit above?

Thankyou yes i did, i have just loosened wires on switches and sprayed loads of wd40 in them and took out the relays and sprayed wd40 where they plug in as it looked pretty gummy and hey presto chipper is working! i think maybe the relays are a bit old maybe.. but its working again! for now anyway!

Ideally you want to use some contact cleaner on all the connections, blasts it all of with an airline, then use the wd40
