Looking to temporarily remove the dead man switch from my electric mower, while I wait for a replacement switch.
I have connected the black (negatives) together, as the switch connects them together when the plunger is pushed in. However, it seems the white and red wire that goes to the output of the bridge rectifier is normally closed, i.e., the opposite. Have confirmed blade spins without the white and red connected, but want to know what those connections are for before actually uses the temporary setup.
Is it for some kind of flyback resistance, or to nullify the voltage across the bridge rectifier so it doesn't damage the motor, or blow a fuse sometimes?
