Customer Question

have "levelrite" 3000 tongue jack only work in down position. took apart cleaned wiring connections and contacts in switch all looked good reversed motor leads and jack would raise. i think motor is ok there are two limit switchs for up or down. cleaned connections wiring connectors on one i don't think this switch is working no continuity when switch is closed other limit looked ok. toggle switch looked ok but could only get continuity from hot lug to one lug of motor lead. i dthink up and down toggle is bad but looks ok. do not know how limit switches fit into this operation.

Thank you for using Just Answer, I will quickly, and methodicly work through your repair needs.......Thank you.........Michael hi, is it a six terminal double throw momentary switch?
Customer: replied 3 years ago.
yes it is 6 wire double throw switch. there is ground wire 2 motor leads one 12 volt supply one wire attached to 12 volt supply lug which goes to one limit switch and a wire from the sixth lug to the the other limit switch. i hope this helps i sent email to levelrite co. they did not respond. i realize diagnois from a distance is almost impossible i hope this helps thank ypou
Expert:  Michael Reush replied 3 years ago.
Thank you for responding, what the swich is doing is reversing the signal to the motor so ck where the pos and neg are on the switch, depress it, you will see it 'passed' to terminals on one side, then when you press the switch you will see the polarity reversed on the other end of the switch.........
Customer: replied 3 years ago.

i not sure i understand. when i depress the switch one way i can switch motor leads and it will run jack up or down. when depress switch other direction i get nothing it is not reversing polarity i don't know if it is toggle switch or problem with limit switch arrangement. i have had switch apart and cleaned contacts can not see a thing wrong with toggle. one limit switch had corrosion cleaned it up even replaced one wire connector. i dont think limit is any good it does not click when button is depressed on side of limit other limit clean clicks when actuator button depressed. tried to contact leverrite co. would not respond.

Expert:  Michael Reush replied 3 years ago.
can you bypass the limit switch in question, I have tried to contact them also with no reply....................................
Customer: replied 3 years ago.

YES I TRIED TO JUMPER IT OUT BUT NOT SURE WHETHER I GOT THE RIGHT 2 WIRES ONE IS HOT LED TO BAD LIMIT. GOT BETWEEN IT AND GROND AND SMOKED MY JUMPER. THERE ARE 3 WIRES ON EACH LIMIT. I THINK ONE IS HOT, ONE JUMPS 0VER TO OTHER LIMIT AND LAST NOT SURE, OTHER 2 WIRES JOB I APOLOGIZE I KNOW THIS IS NOT MUCH HELP. I KNOW JUST ENOUGH TO BE DANGEROUS AND BY TIME I FIGURE IT OUT I HAVE MESS SOMETHING UP.

Hi, I really need to access a wiring diagram for this unit, I a tried before, and with the info given me can come up with nothing............Please take a good look at the unit, or any paperwork you might have and see if you can come up with any model numbers or anything at all............thanks
Customer: replied 3 years ago.

i am sorry you have not been paid. all i have is what i gave you initially. i have no paper work or instructions the only thing i have is what is on the jack. "level-rite hi-power 3000" barker mfg battle creek mi. i sent them an email a week ago and have heard nothing. "just answer" should pay you they put 4 charges on my card totaling 66 dollars 4 days time and had one question answered. i do not understand the charging methods. the experts have been great including you doing all you can. in the future i will be more carefull about submitting questions and charges involved. i am sorry i have not been able to provided more information. i will accept your answer so you can be paid.
