I had a contactor go bad on my Enco 110-2071 a couple of years ago. Couldn't find a contactor with 5 terminals either. Took the old one to a local motor repair shop and the owner came up with a 4 terminal contactor with a single terminal "piggy-back" contactor. It was a tight fit in the electrical enclosure but I got it to fit. Been working great ever since. I'll take some pictures and see if I can get some part numbers for reference.The spindle does not turn in the direction that is controlled by that contactor unless I override the coil by pushing the override button.
I will try switching contactors and see if the problem follows the part.
I have looked for a same/similar contactor with no luck. most have 4 sets of terminals, instead of the 5 I need.
Yes, in that I had to use the button to engage the contacts. Ultimately the problem was the contactor itself, not the coil.Hi Tom, thanks that helps. Were you having the same symptoms as Hoover? The contactor would only work if you pushed the button
but the coil wouldn't pull it?
ps Hoover I suspect the coil has failed somehow, probably gone high resistance. If you have an ohmmeter you could compare the readings of both coils (shut off the power and disconnect the coil wires) to verify the problem for sure
