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.
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.
2. Place trash in compactor.
■ Wrap or cover wet or messy trash.
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.
■
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.
Loading
WARNING
The WHISPER QUIET™ System helps to maintain a quiet home
environment during compactor operation.
NOTE: The contents of the trash may effect the noise level of
your compactor. See “Compactor Use.”
Starting Your Compactor
1. Press NORMAL (UNLOCKED) on the Compact Control. Turn
the Key-Knob to START, and then release it.
Explosion Hazard
Do not compact any container, aerosol cans, or
cloths which might contain insecticide, hair spray,
engine starting fluid, paints, liquids, thinners, or
any other poisonous or explosive products.
Doing so can result in death, explosion, or fire.
IMPORTANT: Do not push items down into compactor with
hands or feet.
10
2. The compactor stops after completing the cycle.
NOTE: When the compacting cycle is done, turn the Key-Knob to
OFF. Remove the Key-Knob and store it out of children’s reach.
Using Solid (Locked) Cycle
The Solid (Locked) cycle extends the use of a bag by putting
constant pressure on the trash to keep it from springing back.
Regular use of the Solid (Locked) cycle can increase bag
capacity up to 25 percent.
During the Solid (Locked) cycle, the ram will stay in the down
position for extra compacting. While the Solid (Locked) cycle is
operating, an indicator shows on the control panel. The drawer is
locked and cannot be opened when the ram is down. For best
results, use the Solid (Locked) cycle for at least 30 minutes at a
time.
To use Solid (Locked) cycle:
1. Press SOLID (LOCKED) on the Compactor Control. Turn the
Key-Knob to START, and then release the Key-Knob.
NOTE: The indicator on the control panel shows when the
Solid (Locked) cycle is in use.
2. After 30 minutes or more, turn the Key-Knob to START to
raise the compacting ram OR press NORMAL (UNLOCKED).
NOTE: When the compacting cycle is done, turn the
Key-Knob to OFF. Remove the Key-Knob and store it out of
children’s reach.
Using the Charcoal Air Filter
The fan-powered Charcoal Air Filter absorbs and minimizes odor.
The degree of odor in the compactor depends on the type of
trash placed in it. The length of time before the filter needs to be
replaced varies with the type of trash compacted. Under normal
use the filter should be replaced once or twice per year.
To use the filter:
1. Press ON on the Charcoal Air Filter Control. The fan creates
air movement in the compactor for odor removal.
NOTE: The Charcoal Air Filter works even when the KeyKnob is in the OFF position.
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. Lift out bag.
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.
■
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.
2. Press OFF on the Charcoal Air Filter Control to turn off the
fan.
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.
11

TROUBLESHOOTING
Try the solutions suggested here first in order to avoid the
cost of an unnecessary service call.
Trash is not compacting
The drawer won’t open
■
Is the drawer less than half-full? Drawer must be more than
half full before trash is compacted.
■
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 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 Your
Compactor.”
14
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.

KITCHENAID AND KITCHENAID CANADA SHALL NOT BE LIABLE FOR INCIDENTAL OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES.

Outside the 50 United States this warranty does not apply. Contact your authorized KitchenAid dealer to determine if another
warranty applies.
