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 1/2 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.
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.
Load bottles or cans on their sides in the center of the
drawer. Do not load bottles in an upright position.
!.[
,.
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.
IMPORTANT:
Do not push items down into compactor
with
hands or feet.
NOTE: You will not see compacting
of trash the first few times
you load the compactor. The compactor
drawer should be about
1/2full before the compactor
can begin to compress the load.
1. Open the drawer. Lift and pull the handle or press the foot
pedal to open the drawer.
NOTE: Pressing the foot pedal opens the container only 3" to
6" (7.6 cm to 15.2 cm), depending on the load.

Close the drawer.
Depending on your model, you may have a single control (Style 1)
or a dual control (Style 2) compactor.

during a cycle:
