Can broken power switch be fixed?

Yes! SwiftPaws pups are very smart and try to make the flag go themselves 😅 - but they are not gentle with the switch - so if yours got broken, don't worry! It can be replaced 😊 Contact support@swiftpaws.com and let us know you need a replacement and you can complete the repair right at home! See more below.

The switch is pretty simple to replace. It comes as a single unit: the switch, wires, and connector that plugs into the circuit board.

To replace the power switch on your main drive unit:

  • Remove the screws on the bottom of your unit
  • Slowly lift the case up from the base - the power switch wires are attached to both top and bottom!
  • Carefully unplug the switch connector from the circuit board

  • Remove the old power switch from the upper case & discard (it is just snapped into place)
  • Thread the connector & wires of the new switch through the hole from the outside of the case

  • Make sure the O (power off) is facing the bottom of the drive and snap into place
  • The wires should be INSIDE the case
  • Plug the power switch connector into the circuit board receptacle

  • Replace the case and screws.
  • You're all set!

If you are not confident replacing the switch yourself, contact support and ask for a repair authorization number and instructions to send it in for repairs.

Please Note: Always bring the Main Drive Unit and Remote Controller indoors when not in use. Please remember to disconnect the battery from the Main Drive to prevent accidentally over- discharging the battery which can cause permanent damage.
