COMPACTOR USE
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 1/2full 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 1/4the size of its original bulk.

Load bulky trash, bottles, and cans in the center of the drawer.
Dottles 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.
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.
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
V2full before the compactor
can begin to compress the load.
1. Open the drawer. Uft 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.
