    You probably need to change the type of switch from momentary to On-Off latching.

    You put the sealing contact in parallel with the normally open START switch. These two switches are in series with the normally closed STOP switch. This is in series with the coil. This makes one ladder rung.

    The sealing contact should be a normally open contact from the same relay as the coil. When the coil is energized the normally open sealing contact in parallel with the START switch allows the START switch to open. Later whn the STOP switch is activated the current is removed from the coil which opens the sealing contact.

    Does that help?
