HowYourCompactor
Works
The compacting ram does not go to the drawer bottom.
You will not see compacting of the first few loadings.
Compaction starts after the drawer is about !A full. 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 l/4 the
size of its original bulk.
Bottles or cans not placed in the centre may become
caught between the ram and the drawer. The Drawer
Monitor Switch senses a “mislead” and causes the
ram to return to the “up” position without compacting.
Load bulky trash, bottles and cans in the centre of
the drawer.

Troubleshooting
Guide/Service
Before calling for assistance
.
Performance problems often result from little things you
can find and fix yourself without tools of any kind.
If your compactor won’t operate:
“Is the power cable plugged into a live circuit with the
proper voltage?
*Have you checked your home’s main fuses or circuit
breaker box?
%‘lsthe drawer completely closed?
“1s the Key-knob turned all the way to START before it is
released?
Drawer won’t open:
*Drawer will open only when ram is all the way up.
@Toraise the ram, turn the Key-knob to START and
release.
If trash is not compacting:
*Is the drawer loaded properly? If anything gets between
the ram and the drawer, the ram will return to the “up”
position, without compacting.
aDrawer must be at least l/3 full before compactor will
compact.
Not enough compaction
or force:
*Compacting works best when only a few items are
loaded. Use the compacting cycle frequently.
Bottles don’t break:
.Not all bottles will break every time, depending on the
bottle and the trash load below it.
