What's in the Box

Info

This AFCO electric fan switch uses a ground wire to turn the electric cooling fan on. The thermal fan switch features a 1/4" NPT threaded brass body with a spade terminal for hook-up. Cooling fan switch activates a cooling fan relay (not included, sold seperately) when the bulb is immersed in coolant that is 200° F. When the engine cools to 185° F, the contacts on the fan relay switch open, and the fan stops automatically. Make sure the temperature fan switch bulb is submerged in the HOT engine coolant.

  • Non-adjustable radiator fan sensor 
  • ON @ 200° F
  • OFF @ 185° F
  • Uses ground wire to switch current to fan

Horrible

May 31, 2016
Went through 2 of these. Both failed unexpectedly, short lives. Use only as ground for relay switch, not for direct power to the fan. Seems to be the only 1/4 npt switch on the market.
Pros:
  • Fit 14 Npt
  • Act As Ground
Cons:
  • Not Durable
No, I would not recommend this product.

Good Product

It's difficult to review a product like this. The important specs were explained fully; it works as advertised. Shipping and handling were expeditious; Speedway often ships the same day I order. Great selection, great service. It's that simple.
Yes, I recommend this product.

Afco electric fan switch number 10685286 is a grounding sender and an override switch can be wired into the lead wire from the fan to the switch and then to ground via an override switch. On our website if you look up the suggested relay kit number 91064028 and on the main page click on the purple print PDF it has a lay out featuring an optional over ride switch.

Does this act as a ground for the fan motor or does it need to run to a relay?

Part # 10685286 This acts as the ground and utilizes the ground wire from the fan. Engine needs to have a good chassis ground for proper application. Power is normally fed to the fan motor by way of a relay to absorb the current surge on start up.

I'm sorry we don't have a the maximum current rating however this does need to be used with a relay so not much current should pass through this switch
