How your compactor
works
A ram inside the top of the compactor
uses pressure to force trash down to
bottom of drawer. The ram will go
down and back up. The compactor
then automatically shuts off.
The drawer has to be about 1/3 full
before any trash will be compacted
O because the ram does not go to
bottom of drawer.
When trash is compacted, it will
become about 1/4 of its original
size _).
You will hear noise when containers
break. Strong glass bottles may
not ever break.
There are two drawer monitor
switches, one on the front of
compactor opening and one on the
inside rear wall behind drawer. Both
switches must be engaged before
ram will compact trash. The drawer
must be completely closed to activate
switches.
If compactor stops during
the cycle, the drawer has opened
during compacting.
To complete
the cycle you will need to close
the drawer completely and turn
Key-Knob to "START".
