SOURCE: Have a Viking trash compactor

I have had this same problem and found two causes. Latch was never the problem.
#1 - Ram not in full up position. To check remove top plate and attempt to run compactor - depressing microswitch when ram is at the top. If compactor will not run you can check the ram position by turning the primary screw drive with a ratchet wrench. When ram is at the top position attempt to open the compactor drawer. The stop microswitch seems to frequently bend out of alignment - check the microswitch positioning before resecuring top plate and adjust if necessary.
#2 - Can (or other debris) is wedged in between ram and drawer. Remove back cover and carefully inspect insides of the unit - use a flashlight. Pry out any debris that may impede the drawer from opening. Attempt to open the compactor drawer.

Good luck,

Hello, welcome to fixya

Here's what works for me, move the rack stops to the left if you haven't already and then the rack itself. i.e.

1d854c5.jpg

and

cb82cce.jpg

Now you'll need to remove the bumpers at the back of the rack rail...

i.e.

push down on the bumper as shown

a6e3c04.jpg

and pull it down and out at the same time...it takes some force, you can use a small screwdriver.

Now you'll need to slide the rail all the way out as shown, but careful not to let the ball bearings fall into the sump area in the process.

I usually hold the broken piece in place while removing the rail...

...( they come in a kit at "repairclinic.com" under number 1394379 like shown here )

The trick now is to install the balls into the holders first

9177d05.jpg

and the holders into the stationary part of the rail on the inside wall...

9c58331.jpg

The inside wall rail will keep the holders in place as you slide the inside rail into place...this will usually require holding the holder with one hand while pushing the sliding rail back into place...

Once this is done, re-install the back rail bumpers followed by the rack and then finally the front rack stoppers and that should do it.

Hope that explain it for you or gives you an idea of how it needs to be done. Please take a moment to rate the assistance I provided here today favorable and a brief testimony is also appreciated when providing free solutions.

Thanks for visiting "fixya" today for your repair help. Let me know if you require further assistance.

Good luck.

Regards,

Macmarkus :)

P.S.

I should also mention you as I alluded to, be sure none of the old 8 ball bearings didn't fall down into either the drain pump or circulation/wash pump. This is something I've seen far too often on Asko/Viking dishwashers with the end result being a broken impeller in either pump...or both, yikes ! I use a telescopic magnet to fish around as it will be the only object made of metal...unless something else has fallen in the sump well area, it's good to check.

Again, good luck :)

I want to install a vinotemp Model: VT-TC32SB. Currently, there is a trash compactor in the space. If I pull the trash compactor out, can I just slide the fridge in place? The countertop and cabinets are...


Hi, It depends a little bit on how your trash compactor and cabinetry are currently set up. Some people have a tough time getting the trash compactor out/cooler in because of the lip that comes down off their counter. However, if you can pull one out, you "should" be able to just slide the other one in. Likewise, you'll need to be sure there is an electrical outlet available in the space. Usually, this isn't a problem as your new Vinotemp will plug right in where the trash compactor was plugged in. But in very old houses sometimes the trash compactor was wired right into the electrical. As long as your counter/cabinets were designed with enough room to move units in/out, this change should go smoothly for you. Best of luck!

Kitchenaid compactor KUCS03FTSS makes banging sound at end of cycle


I bought a Kitchen Aid trash compactor the end of Sept/2008. By July/2010 I have spent $528 on having it fixed! It only cost $623 new so I called Whirlpool customer satisfaction line where after waiting 15 minutes was told that "With all due respsect mam, Whirlpool owes you nothing" Then " as a courtesy" they offered me 50% off an $80 part that I still need to pay $60 in labor to install! So,that would be an additional $100 on an appliance that has been trouble from the get go...I have had numerous compactors before this brand and have never had any trouble...Do NOT buy anything made by Whirlpool as they have apparently, a NO customer satisfaction policy.
