the nut on the ram drive fell off for me and the chain fell off and then broke the grear drive. At 72$ each for the two ruined gears I don't know if I should try to repair it or get a new one.

This has happened a couple times to me and the fix is fairly simple. The problem is the trash ram is pushing down on the edge of the metal of the trash compartment because the door is partially open. The solution is to back-up the ram the the door will close.
To back-up the ram, you will need to pull the compactor out from under your cabinets and unplug it. Turn the compactor on it's side to expose the bottom. There is a plate on the bottom that covers the motor gears. Remove the plate and turn the large gear counter-clockwise to back-up the ram screws (at least this is how it works on my model works). The gears are a little greasy so you may need to add some after messing with the gears.

We just had this same problem. Your problem is most likely abroken plastic gear found at underneeath the bottom of the compactor. Pull out the compactor and turn it upside down. Remove the bottom panel and that is where we found the broken gear. We were able to retract the ram and open the drawer by manually turning the drive chain using an ajustable wrench. Clockwise is compact, counter clockwise is retract.

One of 2 causes. The valve sticks in the open position and won't close, or the ice maker electrical circuit tells it to keep filling.
99% of the time it is a defective water valve located on the back bottom of the machine. Changing it is basically a nuts and bolts job. Fairly easy.
If however the problem resurfaces you would need to replace the ice maker but since it is common practice to install a new valve when installing a new ice maker, it's really no loss.

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
