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.

Steve

SOURCE: Trash Compactor Removal

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?

I can't get to the rear of the compactor. How do I get the front off to get to the rest of it?

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

You have something wrapped on the compactor screw assembly (The assembly is a threaded rod about 24 inches long and 3/4 inch in diameter. ). Most likely it is plastic bag or some other plastic. Pull the entire compactor out (remove the hold down screws first). Then look for the obstruction on the screw assembly, cut it off and try while not in the compactor hole to make sure it works.

I would guess there is a limit switch that tells the machine to stop once the compactor has retracted.

Ge compactor stops after just starting


the running cycle for this type of trash compactor is a max of about 30secs. The fuller the bag is the shorter the cycle. However, if this is not how yours is running try checking to see if there is any trash stuck between the ram and the basket. Or make sure that the foot peddle is still staying in the "up" position.
