All coils will have the coil operating voltage on a tag somewhere on the side of them. They are inexpensive and easily changed. First you should check for what that voltage is against what is required and do what is necessary to get it to match.
This starter in particular has no replaceable "heaters" like the old ones that had to be changed to match the amp draw. See the little white arrow point at the 6:00 position under that little radial switch? The setting is above the arrow. Read the nameplate amp draw on the motor relative to the voltage you are operating it on then rotate the dial to match that amperage.
The little blue button is a manual/automatic reset switch. Typically set it to the manual position so it has to be physically reset.
Try FactoryMation at 1 800 972 0436 for the correct coil. Hopefully they will handle the brand. If not WW Grainger would be a good one to try. It is an ABB brand.

Pushing in the contactor squarely for a short time to hear it run will not hurt anything providing the motor is wired correctly for the applied voltage. Good Luck. By the way, it looks like the control's reset is tripped in the picture. Just push it in and you should feel a little "click".
