Here is an assembly drawing of your compactor.. Please note item # 102 ( direction switch) ..That may be affecting the perfomance of your motor or your motor may have a dead spot on the windings.. Here is a link to a website for parts that coincide with this drawing.. There isn't an awful lot to a compactor in terms of hardware so good luck.. Hope this helps..

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.

The "wheel" has a cracked center that you can not see unless you take the whole gear off.( I am assuming the "wheel" is off the motor and should be driving the chain that goes to the side gears ) There is a tension washer looking thing that holds it on and you can force it off with a flat screwdriver. Once off, I'm sure you'll see the center of the gear( hex shaped) is not engaging the hex gear shaft for being broken somewhere. An appliance repair store should have that part for less than $50. Sure beats the $85 the service people start with for just a service call.

There is a spring that holds up the pedal. It is broken or has come apart. By the pedal in the up position it is a safety switch allowing the compactor to run. You may have to repair this or simply put a small block under the pedal of the unit to run.
I hope my suggestions helps and all the luck to you.
