SOURCE: Trash Compactor Problem
Had a similar problem with mine. I took it apart and found that the nut that is on the bottom end of the ram screw was loose. I tightened it and it fixed the problem. That was about a month ago. Now it is doing it again. I'm going to tighten it again this weekend and apply Loc-tite to the threads.
To get to the nut, you have to lay the compactor on its side and remove the plate from the bottom. You'll see a chain that goes around the motor sprocket and both ram screws. You need to tighten the nuts on the ram screws.
Hope this helps.

I noticed that my compactor attached to the countertop above it at the front, but that it is also possible to do the same at the back. Can you get access under the cabinet at the back of the compactor and check it out?

Most likely a ram position switch but could also be a bad motor. process of elimination will lead to the faulty component...Eric
