So… what is a trash compactor
modern-small-kitchen-appliancesA trash compactor is often used in offices, as well as in larger households or industrial settings to reduce the volume of the trash. With a trash compactor, you can cut down on the waste of garbage bags and labor. Using a trash compactor means you do not have to take out the garbage as often and of course with a trash compactor you can save space in your kitchen.
How does a trash compactor work
I670px-Choose-the-Best-Trash-Compactors-on-the-Market-Step-5nside of the trash compactor is a motor. When turned on, the motor functions by having a press lowered into a receptacle. As the press reaches the topmost layer of the trash, it will begin to compress it. After compressing, the press goes back to its original position. There are special plastic or paper bags, to use in the trash compactors.
My trash compactor doesn’t work. What can be the problem?
Check the power. To do that plug in a different appliance, e.g. hair dryer.
Make sure the drawer is completely closed. There are micro-switches that sense if the drawer is closed or not. The compactor will not work if the door isn’t closed all the way.
Verify that the Key Lock Switch is turned all the way to Start.
Some models of compactor need you to press On before pressing Start.
My trash compactor is too noisy
When the unit is running, you will hear the motor noise. Besides you may also hear the trash getting compacted.
My trash compactor is so smelly
Keep your trash compactor clean. Periodically use either household cleaners or specialty cleaners to clean all accessible areas of the compactor.
To keep the machine free of unpleasant odor spray antibacterial cleaner onto the interior surface of the container and the pressing ram.
Why the drawer doesn’t open/close
Make sure that the ram has returned to the top before trying to open the door.
