Transfer Switch - Broken Case

Recommended Posts

I picked up my Oliver Elite II in Aug 2019. I noticed yesterday that the Transfer Switch case was a bit loose.

It turns out two of the plastic molded tabs that are used for mounting the case had broken, so the case would not be secure for travel.

I alerted Oliver Service, and contacted Progressive Dynamics.

They immediately agreed to send me an exchange switch unit...and I'll ship back the defective unit.

Here's a picture showing where the tabs broke. I don't know why/how those tabs broke, but when I put in the new switch, I'm considering also using some 3M 4100 to hold the switch case down to the mounting board...(along the edge so I can cut it with a knife if needed.)

Although I’ve owned two PD TX Switches on two different Oliver’s with no problems, your idea of additional hold down capability using adhesive sounds like a good plan. Also, be careful to only tighten the screws until they are just snug.

Update: Warranty Repair Completed.

 

I received an immediate reply from both Jason E. (Oliver) and Progressive Industries the same day.

Progressive sent me a new transfer switch, along with a return shipping label for Fedex Ground.

It took about 5 days for the part to arrive, and it took me about 30 minute to replace the switch.

The only tricky part is that removing the actual switch requires that you remove all the cables first, then remove the screws holding the box down. You can only reach the back left screw by rotating the box counter clockwise to reveal that screw in the back. (Normally you can't reach that screw.) I also used a right angle bit for my power screwdriver.
