COMPACTOR USE
How Your Compactor Works
The compacting ram is the part of the compactor which
compresses the trash. The compacting ram does not go to the
bottom of the drawer. You will not see compacting of trash the
first few times you load the compactor.
NOTE: The compactor drawer should be more than ¹⁄₂ full before
the compactor can begin to compress the load.
You may hear a noise when glass breaks. Strong glass bottles
may not break at all. The trash in a full compactor bag will be
about ¹⁄₄ the size of its original bulk.
2. Place trash in compactor.
■ Wrap or cover wet or messy trash.
■
Do not compact items that may develop offensive odors
such as raw meat, fish, grapefruit rinds, disposable
diapers, or personal hygiene items.
■
Load bottles or cans on their sides in the center of the
drawer. Do not load bottles in an upright position.
3. Close the drawer.
Starting the Compactor
Load bulky trash, bottles, and cans in the center of the drawer.
Bottles or cans not placed in the center may become caught
between the ram and the drawer. The Drawer Monitor Switch
then senses a “misload” and causes the ram to return to the “up”
position without compacting.
Depending on your model, you may have a single control (Style 1)
or a dual control (Style 2) compactor.
Style 1
To start and stop the compactor
1. To start the compactor, turn the Key-Knob to START and then
let go. The compactor will automatically stop at the end of the
cycle.
Loading
IMPORTANT: Do not push items down into compactor with
hands or feet.
NOTE: You will not see compacting of trash the first few times
you load the compactor. The compactor drawer should be about
¹⁄₂ full before the compactor can begin to compress the load.
1. Open the drawer. Lift and pull the handle or press the foot
pedal to open the drawer.
NOTE: Pressing the foot pedal opens the container only 3" to
6" (7.6 cm to 15.2 cm), depending on the load.
10
2. To stop the compactor during a cycle:
■ Turn the Key-Knob to LOCK/OFF.
■
Then turn the Key-Knob to ON so the compacting ram
will rise.
■
When the ram stops rising, you can open the drawer.
To remove the Key-Knob
1. Turn the Key-Knob to the LOCK/OFF position.
2. Remove the Key-Knob and store it out of children’s reach.
4. Lift out bag.
Style 2
To start and stop the compactor
1. To start the compactor:
■ Turn the Key-Switch to ON.
■
Press ON.
■
Press START. The compactor will automatically stop at
the end of the cycle.
Installing a New Bag
Do not use any kind of bag other than those designed especially
for use in your compactor. Order replacement compactor bags
through your local dealer or by calling the toll-free number on the
cover or in the “Assistance or Service” section.
IMPORTANT:
Before installing a new bag, be sure:
■ The drawer side is securely locked.
■
2. To stop the compactor during a cycle:
■ Press OFF.
■
The container is clean and free of debris.
1. Place folded bag into the drawer. Open bag and pull top
edges over the drawer top.
Press ON. The compacting ram will rise. When the ram
stops rising, you can open the drawer.
To remove the Key-Switch
1. Turn the Key-Switch to the OFF/LOCK position.
2. Remove and store key out of children’s reach.
Removing a Filled Bag
2. Lock bag in place by pulling the four prepunched holes over
the bag retainer buttons. Holes will expand over the buttons
without damaging the bag.
3. Press inside of bag against the drawer bottom, sides and
corners for a smooth fit.
When the trash is compacted to the top of the drawer, remove
the bag. If the bag is too heavy, compact less trash before
emptying it in the future.
IMPORTANT: Do not push items down into compactor with
hands or feet.
1. Pull the drawer completely open.
2. Remove top of bag from bag retainer buttons. Pull up all four
bag cuffs. Close bag with twist tie provided.
3. Push Side-Lock Latch down and tilt drawer side open.

4. Wash the interior of the drawer with a clean sponge or soft
cloth and a mild detergent in warm water. Rinse and dry
thoroughly with a soft cloth.
5. If the drawer side was removed, slide it back into the tilted
position.
6. Press the lever-action lock (or Side-Lock Latch) down while
pushing the drawer side to the upright position.
7. Latch the drawer side by pushing up the lever-action lock (or
Side-Lock Latch).
Cleaning Inside the Cabinet

It will be easier to replace the drawer after you have finished
cleaning.
2. Lift the front of the drawer to clear the stops.
3. Grasp the drawer on the sides and pull it out the rest of the
way. Set the drawer down gently.
4. Vacuum the inside of the cabinet. Liquid spills or wet trash
should be cleaned up by hand, or by using a vacuum
designed to pick up liquids.
12
5. Wash the inside of the cabinet with a clean sponge or soft
cloth and a mild detergent in warm water. Rinse and dry
thoroughly with a soft cloth.
6. To replace the drawer, grasp it by the sides and insert the
rollers onto the tracks.
7. Lift the front of the drawer and push it in fully past the stops.
Cleaning the Ram
NOTE: You may want to wear protective gloves since there may
be bits of glass on the ram cover.
1. Wipe glass particles off of the ram cover with a cloth or paper
towels.
2. Remove foods with a clean sponge or soft cloth and a mild
detergent in warm water. Rinse and dry thoroughly with a soft
cloth.
Cleaning Before a Vacation
If you will be away for more than a couple of days, remove the
compactor bag. Remove the Key-Knob (or Key-Switch) and store
it out of children’s reach.
TROUBLESHOOTING
Try the solutions suggested here first in order to avoid the cost of an unnecessary service call.
Trash is not compacting
■
Is the drawer less than half-full? Drawer must be more than
half full before trash is compacted.
The drawer won’t open
■
To raise the ram on models with a Key-Knob (or KeySwitch): Turn the Key-Knob (Key-Switch) to START and
release. See “Starting Your Compactor.”
Your compactor won’t operate
■
Is the power supply cord unplugged? Plug into a grounded
3 prong outlet.
■
Has a household fuse blown, or has a circuit breaker
tripped? Replace the fuse or reset the circuit breaker.
■
Is the drawer completely closed? Close the drawer firmly
and start the compactor again.
■
Is the Key-Knob turned all the way to START? Turn the
Key-Knob (Key-Switch) fully to START and release (on some
models). See “Starting Your Compactor.”
■
Did you press ON before pressing START? Press ON
before pressing START (on some models). See “Starting the
Compactor.”
Is the ram all the way up? Drawer will open only when ram is
fully raised.
To raise the ram on models with push button controls:
Press OFF, and then press ON. See “Starting Your
Compactor.”
■
Is the Solid Cycle engaged? Drawer remains LOCKED until
you reset by lifting the foot pedal up.
There is not enough compaction or force
■
Do you use the compacting cycle frequently enough?
Compacting works best when only a few items are loaded.
Bottles don’t break
■
How often do you notice this? Bottles will not break every
time. The thickness of the bottle’s glass and the content of
the trash load below it may prevent the bottle from breaking.
