My service tech and I rotated the Chassis disconnect switch several times. He even put a DVOM on each side of the switch but got "false" readings. I asked him to make sure that the switch ACTUALLY made a connection. Then I was told to go mind my own business and let the tech troubleshoot the problem. Well after almost 2 hours he finally comes to me stating that HE found the Chassis disconnect switch is BAD. Oh really! Bypass the dang thing and get me outta here.
I then ordered another switch and installed it. Everything is back to normal.
When I put a DVOM continuity check onto the old switch is was not making full contact in the ON position.
To check you simply remove the switch and bolt the two power cables together.
When this happened to me there was absolutely NO power getting to the FRB electrical compartment for ANY Chassis functions. Your wiring may be different, not sure.

That's classic. Glad you got it fixed.
RE the "false" readings. You cannot ohm out the switch in the circuit, you have to isolate it by disconnecting one of the contacts you are measuring across.
