Explanation:
"Closing switch to common": Translates:
"Colocando el interruptor en la posición común". But, looking at the text, it involves a multiple position switch, that manages different functions, like: 1 UNDER, OUTPUT 2 OVER, OUTPUT 3 ERROR, this suggests a master control console, with a multiple-function switch for the different tasks of the machine, and in these positions, the switch stands in "close" (inactive) position.
Hope this can be helpful.
Luck!

..dejando el interruptor en el punto de partida....


Explanation:
I assume that the switch turns right or left whatever, but it does have to have a starting point for all functions.


Good Luck!
