Grasp sides of compactor
drawer and place bottom of
drawer into tracks. Lift at the handle so drawer will go over
drawer stops. Close drawer. Check that the drawer opens
freely. If the toe plate rubs against floor, see "Adjusting the
Toe Plate" for further instructions.
Adjusting the Toe Plate
If the toe plate rubs the floor covering, the toe plate clearance
may be changed as follows:
1. Mark on each side of the toe plate the amount of toe plate
that rubs the floor covering.
2. Remove the drawer from the compactor.
(See Step 3 in the
"Unpacking"
section.)
3. Use a ruler and a pencil or chalk to draw a line between the
marks on each side of toe plate.
4. Use scissors or utility knife to cut toe plate along line.
5. Replace drawer. If toe plate still rubs floor covering, repeat
steps 1-4.
COMPACTOR U SE
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 V2full 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 V4the size of its original bulk.

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
V2full 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.

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.
3. Close the drawer.
