Fan Switch Trick

Postby littlebeaver » Wed Jun 08, 2011 3:46 pm



I have messed with these fan switches for some time now, I can fix them to work like new again, if you have one that's not working please send it to me and I will try to repair it for you, ok. here's a tip on putting the fan switch back in it's hole with no problem or issues or cussing or fuss, simply wittle a 3/8's dowel to fit between the posts, this makes it easy to make sure your threading it in
correctly, sometimes the socket is a pain...Here are some photo's...works for me everytime hassel free..
Wittle down one side of the 3/8's dowel to fit between the post

Get you some long needlenose pliers from Harbor Freight or where ever, clamp right in the center of the rubber plug and gently pull straight back, should come right off...I just had a guy send me a bad switch and I already have it working, if you wish to do this, just send me a pm..
