Generac Model G0070422 22kw air cooled generator. This is a brand new installation and I am going through checkout procedures, inside auxiliary shutdown switch needs to be set with switch label "|" however, external auxiliary switch on back of generator needs to be set with switch label "O" to clear auxiliary shutdown alarm and permit run. Rear switch either has inverted label, reverse switch contact logic or reverse logic in Evolution controller. According to exploded diagrams these are single pole single throw switches so moving a wire over on switch isn't an option., I didn't check to see if switch face will pop off and turn around. Any cause for concern here? Thanks in advance, Tom

I would just warranty the switch and get it replaced. The switches are SPST and do nothing more than break a loop back to the controller.

What I ended up doing was I popped out the switch removed and turned around the toggle and then reinstalled, working as it should. Someone fell asleep in the switch factory that day.. Lol!
