I replaced the original switch on my Unisaw with a paddle switch for safety but it does not work.
The motor runs as long as I hold the start button in, as soon as I release the button the motor stops.
The Unisaw uses a motor starter
Any idea why?
Thanks.

If it makes any difference, the switch I bought is this one.

Problem solved:

I took the paddle of the new switch and I mounted it on the original switch; it works perfect.
