That a bummer. Send it if you don't mind. Maybe it will help me find more.That 20.5 amp is an oddball. There are plenty of the 15 amp D45X switches out there. Based on what I found, it looks like that particuilar swtich is used in a lot of Arcade machines. I can send you a link, but the minimum order is 100 of them.
Thank youI think this is the same switch. The part no. is different but all the specs are the same.
It's working just as you described.Common to NC spade should have continuity until you press the button
Common to NO spade should be open until you press the button
Checking from NO to NC spades should never have continuity
They were tight but have some tarnish from corrosion.In your picture of the microswitch it looks like both the No and NC spades got hot, see the discolored black and blue on the spades. Could it be as simple as a bad connection to the plug on terminals? Do they feels tight when you slip them on?
I'll put it back in and try it again. It seemed like it wasn't working right at first when I was clicking it but I wasn't sure I had my meter set right. Now when I do it it's perfectSince the problem is that the saw runs without pulling the handle it proves the saw motor is functioning and the circuit is conducting electricity. Could the problem have been that the switch was stuck in the ON position and when you took it apart it became un-stuck? My bet is still on replacing the microswitch if you can get a new one shipped to you relatively cheap. You could remove the saw blade and try it on the bench with your existing switch to see if it is working properly now.
