Recommended Grounding Method
This compactor is for use on a single phase, 115-volt, 60 Hz, AC
only 15 or 20 ampere fused and properly grounded circuit and is
equipped with a grounding plug as shown below. Time delay fuse
or circuit breaker is recommended. It is recommended that a
separate circuit serving only this appliance be provided. In the
event of an electrical short circuit, grounding reduces the risk of
electric shock by providing an escape wire for the electric
current. Do not modify the plug attached to the compactor; use
only with a grounded receptacle.
This compactor must be grounded while in use to reduce the risk
of electric shock. The compactor is equipped with a threeconductor cord and three-prong grounding-type plug to fit the
proper grounding-type receptacle. The green (or green and
yellow) conductor in the cord is the grounding wire. Never
connect the green (or green and yellow) wire to a live terminal.
The outlet should be properly installed and grounded in
accordance with the National Electrical Code and Local codes
and ordinances. No adapter should be used with this appliance.
1. Leave 6 in. (15.2 cm) of clearance space to the right side of
the compactor in order to remove the compactor bags.

COMPACTOR USE
WARNING
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.
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.
WARNING
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.
Cut Hazard
Do not push items down into compactor with
hands or feet.
Doing so can result in cuts.
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 toe bar
to open the drawer.
NOTE: Pressing the toe bar opens the container only 3 in. to
6 in. (7.6 cm to 15.2 cm), depending on the load.
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.

if left on the compactor surface.
11
3. Grasp the drawer on the sides and pull it out the rest of the
way. Set the drawer down gently.
TROUBLESHOOTING
Try the solutions suggested here first in order to avoid the
cost of an unnecessary service call.
Trash is not compacting
■
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.
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 as 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.
Is the drawer less than half full? Drawer must be more than
half full before trash is compacted.
Your compactor won’t operate
■
Is the power supply cord unplugged? Plug into a grounded
3 prong outlet.
■
Has a household fuse 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 the “Starting the Compactor” section.
■
Did you press ON before pressing START? Press ON
before pressing START (on some models). See the “Starting
the Compactor” section.
The drawer won’t open
■
Is the ram all the way up? Drawer will open only when ram is
fully raised.
■
To raise the ram on models with a Key-Knob (or KeySwitch): Turn the Key-Knob (Key-Switch) to START and
release. See the “Starting the Compactor” section.
■
To raise the ram on models with push button controls:
Press OFF, and then press ON. See the “Starting the
Compactor” section.
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
■
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.
12
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.
