No volt meter?

    Comments about RadioShack SPST 16A 125V Illuminated Round Rocker Switch with Red LED:

    Well, it would be nice to have instructions printed on the bag, but really? If you are installing this switch I would assume you have a volt meter and a little knowledge on how to use it. Good switch. Easy to install. BTW, a motor surges. Maybe that was your problem. Get the right switch for the job.

        Correct wiring

            Comments about RadioShack SPST 16A 125V Illuminated Round Rocker Switch with Red LED:

            pngoat has the wiring description backwards. For LED always on, Pin 1 - to load (what you are turning on and off), Pin 2 - Hot (black or red wire) from line in, Pin 3 (the brass one) to neutral. For LED on with switch, Pin 1 - Hot line in, Pin 2- to load, pin -3 to neutral. You can confirm this with a multimeter. With the switch unconnected measure the resistance between pin 2 and 3 will always have a resistance regardless of switch position. Measure between pin 1 and 3 you will get the same resistance, but only when the switch is on. I built a step down center tapped transformer in a project box with this switch, an inline fuse and three banana plugs (all parts from RadioShack) following pngoat's wiring for the switch and got it wrong the first time around. Oh well.

                  Radio Shack #275-0020

                  This is a very nice switch, it can carry full line voltage and it eliminates the need for an additional LED or neon light to the build.

                  Since the Radio Shack switch packaging doesn't give a diagram of the wiring, this might help:

                  Pin #1 & Pin #2 - LED never on
                  Pin #2 & Pin #3 - LED always on
                  Pin #1 & Pin #3 - LED On & Off

                  For U.S.A. builders, the 20mm mounting hole is slightly smaller than 13/16".

                  Use of a stepped-type drill bit is suggested.

                          There are two ways you can wire this switch. 1. If you want the light on constantly: Pin 1: Line in. Pin 2: Load (switched). Pin 3: Neutral. 2. If you want light on only when the switch is on: Pin 1: Load (switched). Pin 2: Line in. Pin 3: Neutral. I wired mine the 2nd way to control a light that is out of view of the switch. Works well.

                          We hooked it up to small DC motor, just wired the + and - terminals to the two silver tabs and ignored the ground. Works like a charm, and the installation was a piece of cake too! I'll definitely be back for more.

                          It sucks when you find a good product but have to research on how to install it due to lack of diagram or instructions. Here is a link to a PDF that will get you well on your way to installing this switch. Even a dummy like me understood it. Good luck...[@]

                            When I bought the switch I was surprised the wiring information wasn't on the packet, but I figured it must be on the RadioShack website. Amazingly, it's not! Except for the information provided by a few users (thanks folks!) [...]Selling mains voltage rated electronic components with no wiring information to the general public is very poor practice!
