COMPACTOR C ARE
Your new compactor
is designed to give you many years of dependable service. However, there are a few things you are expected to do
in order to properly maintain your compactor. This section will tell you how to clean and care for your compactor.
Before cleaning the compactor,
turn the Key-Knob (or Key-
Switch) to the OFF & LOCK position and remove it.
NOTE: Any services other than those outlined in this section
should be performed
by a designated service representative.
Cleaning Exterior Surfaces
1. Wash exterior surfaces (including stainless steel) with a clean
sponge or soft cloth and a mild detergent in warm water. Do
not use abrasive or harsh cleaners. Rinse and dry thoroughly
with a soft cloth.

if left on the compactor
surface.
