blade 1000 broken tab for interlock switch

807557 Member Posts: 35,835
the tab for the interlock switch has broken.
is there a way to fix this since it is just a piece of plastic?
the blade will not turn on because of this


  • Perhaps take a hot-glue gun and affix a blob of material where the tab is supposed to be on the side panel?

    Alternatively you could bypass the switch on a semi-permanent basis.
    It's a standard normally-open, spring-loaded switch.
    Cut a hole and replace the switch with a SPST toggle switch.
    Give yourself a way to return the original switch to normal capability, at some future date.
