Hi Folks,

I got a G0435P planer back in December. The power cord on it was so pitifully short, that I went to change it to a much longer one, I’d rather not have to use an extension cord with 240v.

So, when i unhooked the cables from inside the magnetic switch box, one came loose by accident, and I’m not sure where it goes. The diagram in the book is for the non P version, which has the magnetic switch box up top with the start/stop buttons; the P has it seperate. I called Grizzly, and the guy on the phone couldn’t find anything referencing this.

I’m probably being really cautious, as I don’t want to fry it.

If someone has the Polar Bear version of this planer, would you be able to open the magnetic switch box and tell me where the wires from the buttons up top go? the positions are labeled. There are 4 wires:
Blue (I’m set with where this goes)
White (I’m pretty sure that is where it goes, i didn’t touch it)
Black (This is one I need to know where it goes)
Red (This is also one I need to know where it goes)

If you do, make sure to unplug the planer first please.

The help is much much appreciated.

Hello again folks,

Found the answer. Grizzly also made a G0453Z planer with the separate button box, and that book has the proper diagram I was looking for.

You can buy vary heavy line cord(10 Gage) that will carry the load for 240v.I have 15 feet on my GO 691 3hp 240 volt table saw.It’s not cheep but it gets the job right.

Have your say...
