    I have a 30qt mixer I'm trying to fix, and under the cover it has a Allen Bradley 100-C16 contactor that is hooked up very strangely to a Z-BW06 switch (also hooked up strange) as well as a ZB2-BE102 and an AT-615C timer.

    I see some very obvious problems looking at it but I have a time line to get this fixed and I would really appreciate some support.

    (I've looked online with no luck finding a wiring diagram for this thing, and I don't know enough about wiring to trust myself to NOT fry the $100 contactor)

    Thanks for the heads up - I couldn't view them properly either (not sure what happened), so I edited the post to manually add them. I'm looking at the logs to see what happened :).

    If you could just confirm whether or not that little grey board on top is just passing power directly through it I will draw up a diagram of how it is currently wired

    It appears to me as just a 12 row terminal strip.
    Continuity test would confirm it.

    It appears to be a "special" terminal strip. Some of the adjacent terminals appear to be internally connected together: R and T; T and R; 6 and 5 reading from the top down. Note the placement of the test prod holes. Power it down (un-plug the line cord) and check continuity to be sure.

    It sounds like you may be unqualified to work on this equipment.
