(Edited to add picture that disappeared)

Onegai shimasu,

The A/C guy was out doing a tune-up, and he mentioned that the contactor relay is starting to look a bit crispy.  He wants $290 to replace it.  Yeah, Right!!

OK  The contactors run about $25, but I am unclear on whether mine is a single-pole or double-pole.  (I suspect it's a single-pole, but want to be sure.)

I'm hoping someone will tell me if it's a single or double pole contactor:



I know the Totaline part numbers:

P282-0311 (single-pole)
     -  OR -
P282-0321 (double-pole)

So, I just need to be absolutley sure before I get the replacement.

Thank you.   :D

That ain't a crispy contactor. This is. LOL
That there is a called a 1.5 pole 24 volt 30 amp contactor.
It cost a bit more because the contact is a little heftier. These are quite common.

Applianceman,

Thanks for the reply.  That fried contactor...  WHOA!!  lol

I knew mine wasn't that bad; just trying some preventative maintanence. (And, avoiding the $290 the repair guy want for replacing it!)

So, will the Totaline P282-0311 be the proper replacement?

Here's a pic of one:





If not, what should I replace mine with?  Make and part number?

Thanks for your help.

The one you have pictured is ok. Make sure it has a 24 volt coil. Go ahead and get it now and put it where you can install when the other one conks out which is usually on a sunday on the hottest frigging day of the year. LOL

OK, now I am looking at the two pictures and I am noticing a difference between the two contactors.

The one that is currently in use has 4 blade connectors on the far right side (red wire plugged in on top, blue wire plugged in on bottom).

The P282-0311 has 2 blade connectors on each side (top and bottom in the pic), so which blade connectors would I connect the red and blue wires into?

Thanks.

(If need be, I can provide pics with arrows, circles, etc. for clarity.)

It is simple. The blue goes on one side and the red wire goes on the other side of the contactor. Makes no dif which side goes where 24 volts is alternating current. On this new contactor you DO NOT connect the wires on the same side. Instead of having the wires connect on one side, a leg of the coil is on each side of the contactor in this particular manufacture.Fairly common. If you look close the double blades are connected to each other (one solid piece). This video clear shows the basic makeup of the coil

Applianceman,

I really do appreciate your help.

I guess I needed a pic for my own clairty.  lol

So, are you saying if I attach the red wire to the red or blue circled blade, I would then attach the blue wire to either the green or yellow circled blade?
