Trash compactor does not stall the motor and reverse direction when it gets to the bottom of the travel. If I stop manually with the switch and restart it then travels back up. I checked the Top Limit and Directional switch and the Rotary Start/Stop switch and the continuity is working properly. I replaced the plastic ram stops. The Plastic power nuts appear to be in good shape - don't see any cracks or stripped threads. Not sure what to try next. Thanks for the help.

Hello Gene, Thank you for writing. The top limit/directional switch should have no continuity when activated. If yours has continuity, it may need to be replaced. We hope this helps!

The left side of the foot step has detached away from the foot pedal. I can only open the drawer on the right side of the foot pedal. What parts do i need to repair it?

Hello Ida, Thank you for your inquiry. We have researched your model and recommend first checking the screws on the left hand side to make sure it is tight. We also recommend checking the wheel and roller assemblies as well. Good luck with your repair.

Compactor stuck in lower position
Moved the compactor out from under cabinet and unplugged the powercable.Laid compactor over on its side Removed the top (4 screws) and base plate (3 screws) as well as the coverplate for the motor(3 screws)Found that large drive was broken in half. Used two screwdrivers to start split ring then pliers to pull it off the rest of the way.
Removed the drive gear and the washer.
Used a nail to drive out the pin for the smaller drive gear kit. Removed and replaced with new, used new pin to lock it on to the shaft. Changed out the bearings and washers on one powerscrew, put chain back on. Then was then a simple matter to put the new gear back on the chain then slide the whole thing back on the drive shaft. Replace the washer then slip the split ring back in place and seat it home with the pliers. Greased chain, gear drive and powerscrew. Put all covers back on with the screws. Pushed button it worked.

Trash Compactor ram wouldn't lower
I pulled the trash compactor out from under the counter.

I took out the four screws that kept the top cover in place to expose the ram.

The gear shafts were turning but the ram would not lower, at first I though the ram drive bolts were stripped and it wouldn't engage the shaft. Then I realized there was a mechanical directional\limit switch at the top that controlled the power and direction the gear shafts were turning, this switch was broken.

Just had to take off the front plate that was held on by a number of screws and replace the switch that was held on by two more screws. It had five wires attached to it, the new switch was clearly labeled as to which color wire went where.

Scratches in Surface
This product comes in a bottle with a brush like Liquid Paper. It goes on incredibly easy. A second coat might be needed. I wanted to prevent rust from setting in so I covered the scratches and dings. The paint is a little brighter since my washer is 10 years old but it still looks great.
