Safe Servicing Practices
Safe Servicing Practices
To avoid personal injury and/or property damage, it is important that Safe Servicing Practices be
observed. The following are some limited examples of safe practices.
1. DO NOT attempt a product repair if you have any doubts as to your ability to complete it in a safe
and satisfactory manner.
2. Before servicing or moving an appliance, remove the power cord from the electrical outlet, trip the
circuit breaker to the OFF position, or remove the fuse.
3. Never interfere with the proper operation of any safety device.
4. USE ONLY REPLACEMENT PARTS CATALOGED FOR THIS APPLIANCE. SUBSTITUTIONS MAY
DEFEAT COMPLIANCE WITH SAFETY STANDARDS SET FOR HOME APPLIANCES.
5. GROUNDING: The standard color coding for safety ground wires is GREEN, or GREEN WITH
YELLOW STRIPES. Ground leads are not to be used as current-carrying conductors. It is
EXTREMELY important that the service technician re-establish all safety grounds prior to completion
of service. Failure to do so will create a hazard.
6. Prior to returning the product to service, ensure that:
• All electrical connections are correct and secure
• All electrical leads are properly dressed and secured away from sharp edges, high-temperature
components, and moving parts
• All non-insulated electrical terminals, connectors, heaters, etc., are adequately spaced away from
all metal parts and panels
• All safety grounds (both internal and external) are correctly and securely connected
• All panels are properly and securely re-assembled
NOTE
This service manual is intended for use by persons having electrical and mechanical training and a
level of knowledge of these subjects considered acceptable in the appliance repair trade. BroanNuTone cannot be responsible, or assume any liability, for injury or damage of any kind arising from
the use of this manual.
Grounding Instructions
FOR PERSONAL SAFETY, THIS APPLIANCE MUST BE PROPERLY GROUNDED.
This power cord on this appliance is equipped with a three-prong (grounding) plug which mates with a
standard three-prong (grounded) receptacle.
If there is a two-prong outlet located where you will install the compactor, it is your responsibility to have
it replaced with a properly grounded three-prong wall receptacle.
DO NOT, UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCES, CUT OR REMOVE THE THIRD (GROUND) PRONG FROM
THE POWER CORD.
A 120-volt, 60 Hz., A.C., 15 amp fused and grounded electrical supply is required (time-delay fuse
or circuit breaker is recommended). It is recommended that a SEPARATE CIRCUIT serving only this
appliance be provided.
DO NOT USE AN EXTENSION CORD WITH THIS APPLIANCE.

How the compactor works
The compactor compresses household trash up to 1/6 of its original volume. It will compact normal household trash
including milk cartons, glass and plastic bottles, containers and jars, tin cans, wrappings, boxes, food wastes, etc.
When you start the compactor, an electrically powered ram moves down into the trash bucket, compresses the trash
and then returns to the “UP” position and shuts off automatically.
NOTE: The ram travels about 2/3 of the way down into the trash bucket. Because of this, the trash bucket must be at
least 1/3 full before you will notice any compression.
Section A – Installation
Your compactor has been designed to require minimum
space without loss of capacity whether free-standing or
built-in.
Free-Standing
As shipped, the compactor is only configured for built-in
installations. This appliance can be converted from builtin to free-standing with the use of Toe Kick Accessory Kit
Model 15TCTK (sold separately).
If additional cord length is required for free-standing
installation, remove the cord clamp and wire tie on the
back of the unit.
CAUTION
Failure to use Toe Kick Assembly Kit Model 15TCTK in
a free-standing installation may cause the compactor
to be unstable during operation.

MOUNTING STRAPS

Two under-counter mounting straps are provided. Use
these straps to secure the compactor to the underside

Fasten the slotted end of the straps to the compactor
using the holes in the top of the compactor cabinet as
shown.
NOTE: When installation compactor under granite or
solid surface countertops, bend the mounting straps so
they can be secured to the adjacent cabinetry.

Section A – Installation
Leveling the Compactor
CORD CLAMP
The compactor is equipped with a 6-ft. long power cord.
Use the cord clamp to prevent excess power cord from
being pinched beneath the cabinet during installation or
service.
Your compactor has four adjustable levelers; (2) rollers in
the rear and (2) legs in the front. They allow you to adjust
for uneven floors and also trim the unit up to fit an undercounter installation.

or she places trash into the compactor, or removes or
replaces the bag. If the handle is scratched, chipped or
broken, replace it.

clock and delay mode; to monitor odor control, and to reset
and advance the odor control disk. If LEDs or switches
are worn, replace the display module.
1. Remove the control panel assembly from the unit (see

SCREWS
1. Remove the control panel assembly from the front of
the unit (see Control Panel Assembly, Remove and
Re-install).
The capacitor provides power required to start the main
motor and improves overall efficiency.
Use an electrically-insulated tool to short the capacitor
terminals together. This will ensure the capacitor has
fully discharged and will prevent shock if any body
part comes in contact with the terminals.
Before testing with a multi-meter, there are two indicators
you can look for on the outside of the capacitor to see
if it is bad. If you spot corrosion around the terminals
or bulging electrolyte (ceramic outer material), then the
capacitor is leaky and must be replaced.
To access and test the capacitor:
1. Remove the control panel assembly from the front of
the compactor (see Control Panel Assembly, Remove
and Re-install).
SCREWS
2. Remove two Phillips head screws and the switch
from the bottom of the motor.
3. Noting their locations, transfer the wires to the
replacement switch.
4. Install the switch and secure with two Phillips head
screws.
Section D – Electrical Components
3. Remove two Phillips head screws and wire leads
from the capacitor.
4. Discharge the capacitor (see Warning above).
5. Use an ohmmeter or multi-meter set on the “Ohms
times 1000” scale (if available) to check resistance
across the wire terminals. The needle should jump
toward zero ohms and quickly move back to infinity.
(NOTE: Some less-sophisticated meters will only tell
you if the capacitor is good or bad.)

NOTE: On installation, route the wires through the notches
in the shield.

The standard color coding for safety ground wires
is GREEN, or GREEN WITH YELLOW STRIPES.
Ground leads are not to be used as current-carrying
conductors. It is EXTREMELY important that the
service technician re-establish all safety grounds
prior to completion of service. Failure to do so will
create a hazard.

will improve as more trash is
added.
Bottles and cans should be
placed randomly in center
of drawer. Cans and bottles
neatly arranged are capable
of supporting a tremendous
amount of pressure.

Ram continues to run with the door
open.
During NORMAL compact mode,
ram runs down and doesn’t return
up. Motor hums after reaching the
bottom position.
During NORMAL compact mode,
ram runs down and stops (operates
as it would in HOLD compact mode).
During HOLD compact mode, ram
runs down and up (operates as it
would in NORMAL compact mode).
Trash compactor noise level
increases during operation.
NOTE: Due to the number of moving
components, it is expected that
operating noise may increase over
the life of the product.
Defective upper limit switch
assembly.
Defective interlock switch.
Gently push the door closed
until the door actuator engages
the interlock switch. This will
activate the ram until it returns
