How Your Compactor Works
In NORMAL Cycle, 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 l/3 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 center 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
Load bulky trash, bottles and cans in
the center of the drawer.
