- ok anyone here with some knowledge of switches as im getting an odd thing happening.
I built a 3d printer and wired it up according to the manual and everything works as intended but due to my disability wanted a power switch at the front of the machine to power on and off instead of reaching around to the back as its against a wall.
I bought a 240v 5amp current Push Button Switch with led. I have wired it as per the first diagram mode 1. the 2nd pic shows the 5 pins.
I have taken the Live and negative from the rear switch to the front so when power at the back is on its still off until I turn it on at the front. I have wired the switch as per the diagram but when the printer is switched off at the front with power on at the rear the switch led is a dim glow. When I press the button to turn the power on its bright and everything powers up as intended.
when i turn rear switch on the front led glows dim but when i push the switch on all the internal electronics light up as intended.
