    Found the switch easily on the web site and ordered it, when going through payment it gives you postage options of lower cost or next day more than twice the price. leaving the cheaper checked when I pressed pay I noticed the postage had changed to higher without asking for it but too late to change it as my finger was already pressing the key so my warning to you is make sure you check everything before paying. Intentional or not beware. The switch arrived the next day & fitted it fine, great service despite the cost.

    This replacement switch arrived within 2 working days. It was an exact replacement for the old switch in the Flymo Hover Vac HV2800. It was basically easy to replace, having good screw terminals on one side. However I don't know why the manufactures didn't use screw terminals on the other side, instead of push fits. It was difficult to remove the push fit wires from the old switch, (braking the switch up is probably the best way). When the wires were pushed into the new switch they seemed a little lose; however it worked ok when all reassembled.

      Actually I found the best way to remove the two wires was to prise the back off the switch (doesn't matter if you wreck it). It is then a simple matter of removing the clips securing the wires and pulling them out intact. This way, there is no danger of damaging the solder tags on the ends of the wires, which are useful when refitting. To refit, simply push the wires into the appropriate holes in the new switch and they will latch. Same for the capacitor.

      The way I removed the wire from the old switch was to push a pin into the hole beside the wire and pull. The wires are held inside the switch by a simple spring mechanism!

  • Q Do I need a new capacitor? 1 Answer

    We have just bought the above switch for our Power Compact 400 and noticed that the existing switch has another little box on it. From reading reviews here it seems to be a capacitor. Do I need to buy a new one or can I use the existing one. The lawnmower just decided not to work when we tried to use it - no fuses blown, nothing else wrong with it. thanks

      You can reuse the original. to remove push a small pin into the switch next to the capacitor wire to release it.

      Without the capacitor the mower will work but may cause interference to radios TV.s and phones nearby.

      Other reviewers suggest breaking the old switch apart (take photo first to identify them).
