Switch spring location on Brute air compressor
by Donald King
I know how generic that sounds but it is what I need to know.
My compressor is a Brute. It's 10 gal. max 125 psi unit for light home DIY application. It is powered by Briggs and Stratton and any searches on the pressure switch ends up at B & S.
The OEM number for the switch is 201826GS.
The points started sticking so I took it apart to clean them up. In the process a spring bent to approx. 120 degrees with tension coil in the middle and each end bent to "hook" for mounting came loose before I could see its location an now I can't get it back in place.
I am pretty sure it's purpose is to hold the points "bar" stable as the contacts move on their own springs to perform the on/off function. (I may have that just opposite, not sure)
Is there any way you can help? An exploded view of the switch would be a big help.
