I don't but I can show you generic rotary encoders. you can compare them to see if they are compatible. do you mind removing the panel for pictures? we need distance between the pcb and panel. this is the mounting height of the part that must be an exact match. any clues such as alps, panasonic, bournes may be stamped on the side with black ink.

I broke a stepped encoder on a 225e back in 2009. I could see a part number once removed - I would guess it's not the part you have, don't remember it as bright green. Anyway the part I had was RE11CT-V1N12-ZF7CS which I googled to Switchchannel.com . Had one sent and fixed it.

If you show a picture and measure the mounting height then I would show you something that is compatible definitely.
