On/Off Toggle Switch For Cornelius 130R1500

Thu May 28, 2020 2:05 pm

Looking for an on/off switch for my Cornelius 130R1500 Compressor if anyone has one to sell. I was filling tanks last evening and when I went to shut off my compressor it just kept running. So the procedure now is plug in / plug out until I get a new switch. :roll: I checked the manual that I downloaded from VDH when I got this compressor and don't see any part number or much else for that matter. All I can find in the manual is that it is a 2 pole on/off toggle switch. In the interest of keeping an original switch in this compressor I would like to buy one if anyone has an extra for sale. If not; any suggestions. If all else fails then it's a trip to the hardware store. :D

Thanks for the info Tom; much appreciated. I haven't taken the switch out of my compressor yet but when I do I will compare it to what they have on the website you sent me and take it from there.

Well after looking through the catalog link that Tom sent me and some searching on the net I reached the conclusion that I would probably not find another toggle switch to install in this compressor that would mount to the compressor the same way as the original with the 2 mounting screws. That being the case I decided to make a trip to my local True Value Hardware and see what I could find there. I found a Gardner Bender model GSW-14, 20 amp switch that would do the job and it did have 4 screw mount terminals just like the original switch. The only difference was how it was installed in the compressor. Instead of using the 2 mounting screws like the original I just slid the post through the hole in the compressor base and then secured it with the circular nut. Overall it was a pretty easy procedure; all I had to do was drain the oil from the compressor so I could tip it up, remove the bottom cover, remove the old switch and then install the new one. I then reassembled, put the oil back in and fired her up - works just fine. Thanks again for the info Tom!
