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.

When the ram reaches the end of its downward movement, the motor stalls. When the motor stalls, it
causes the motor centrifugal switch to change position(s), completing a circuit through the CCW motor
windings (ram up direction). This circuit is set up through the top limit/directional switch, which is
activated by the ram. At this point, the motor reverses direction and the ram moves in the upward

Start your investigation by removing the bottom plate. There should be a belt or chain going around 3 gears. Mine has 2 metal and one plastic. The 2 metal ones are on the ends of the rods that the ram runs up and down on. The plastic one is on top of a big speed reduction gear that is turned by the motor gear. Don't pinch your fingers but see if you can turn the big gear by hand. All gears should turn. If not check each gear for broken teeth, or bad bearing & races under the 2 rod gears.
Be sure to check the threaded hard plastic nut that drives the screw that powers the scissors up and down. This is the part that usually fails.
