Q & A

Q. My GE original style RFS-6switch is 25V, but this replacement is 24V. Will this cause an issue?

A. No, it will not cause an issue. The new style replacements are only 24V. You are able to install a switch that pulls less voltage without it effecting the system. A problem would only occur if you installed a switch that pulls more voltage because it will overtax the system.

Q. My old GE switches are mounted in a strap. Do I need a new strap for these?

A. No, these new switches do not require a strap (unless using with bracket mount plates) because they will just push right into the front of the New Style Switch Plates and snap into place.

Q. Can I use these new switches with my old strap?

A. No. Do not try to install these switches in an old strap. These new switches are slightly larger than the old rocker switches and may be damaged if you try to jam them into an old strap. The buttons can become stuck because the housing will be pinching too tightly against the strap.

Q. Is this a 3 way GE low voltage push button switch?

A. Yes, any low voltage switch can be wired as a 3 way switch. You will wire the switch in parallel to the relay it is controlling. So for that reason, you could have an unlimited number of switches controlling the same light. The relay just responds when receiving a signal from the switch.

    Ideal Replacement

    Great to locate a supplier of replacement parts for old lighting systems. Happily, the switch came with matching switch plate (as the old was not a perfect match), so that replacement of switch and plate went smoothly and solved the problem of a broken switch.

    Almost perfect

    We had to file out the end of the holes a bit for them to fit in although it didn't take much and they are working very well. *** Staff Note - these new switches should not be jammed into the old straps because they can stick and burn out your relay. New switches should be used with new plates which are designed to be large enough to accommodate these larger switches.

    Excellent product and service.

    I have been looking for low voltages switches and plates for a while. We have a low voltage system installed in our house in Canada which is over 60 years old. The parts that I found at Kyle are exactly what I needed. Kyle fulfilled my order immediately and the parts arrived at my secondary residence in Florida in just a few days. Excellent service and the right parts! Thank you.

    Easy replacement

    I found changing out the old style to be a snap and will definitely be ordering more in the near future.
