Cleaning Inside the Cabinet

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.
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.

TROUBLESHOOTING

Try the solutions suggested here first in order to avoid the cost
of an unnecessary service call.
Trash is not compacting
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 Key-Switch):
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
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.
