SOURCE: trash compactor problem
I have had this problem on my GE Monogram. The 'smasher' is near the bottom and does not move anymore, even though the motor is working.
What I did was to get a crowbar that would fit through the crack and hook the underneath side of the bottom plate. You also have to hold the switch so the motor runs with the door open and pull up on the plate until the drawer can be slide out. The trunnion nut (a plastic nut) was cracked. I replaced it 3 years ago, and it just cracked again. They now make it out of metal, so maybe it will last longer. Ordered it from appliancepartspros.com.

Most likely the motorwindings have been overheated after staying to long time in down position and trying to get up.
If there is a Emerson motor in your compactor than you will not find anything wrong most likely it is the winding of the motor, we have had this two times, changed the motor and the problem is solved.
