Has your water pressure declined out of nowhere? We can find out why, and fix the problem.

Trash Compactor Services

We offer 24-hr Emergency Services

Trash Compactor Maintenance

If the compactor is overloaded, it might not thoroughly and effectively compact your garbage

Trash Compactor Repair

If the compactor attempts to start on its own after repeated use and has a "hot" smell, the problem may be a defective upper-limit switch

Trash Compactor Improvement

The compactor needs to be a minimum of 1/3 full with trash, but no more than 2/3 full. Any other amounts (lower or in excessive of) can cause your compactor unit to struggle to do its work.

Trash Compactor Upkeep

Always unplug the appliance or disconnect the power before attempting any repairs

Trash Compactor Replacement

If the compactor still runs but does not crush the garbage, check the hydraulic ram; it may be stuck in position if you are getting this sort of problem

To avoid personal injury or death, always unplug the appliance or disconnect the power before attempting any repairs. Always turn off the gas at the source before repairing any gas appliance. Always wear safety glasses when using tools. Keep loose clothing and hair away from any moving parts. Safety is of major importance when performing any service or repair on any electrical appliance.

It attempts to start on its own
If the compactor attempts to start on its own after repeated use and has a "hot" smell, the problem may be a defective upper-limit switch or a defective centrifugal switch on the motor. If this happens, this part should be replaced.

Over- or under-loading
If the compactor is overloaded, it might not thoroughly and effectively compact your garbage. As a rule, the compactor needs to be a minimum of 1/3 full with trash, but no more than 2/3 full. Any other amounts (lower or in excessive of) can cause your compactor unit to struggle to do its work.

Complete a series of checks
There is a risk that repeated vibration from the motor could work small parts loose. Examine any screws or nuts and bolts for wear and tear. Make sure that power screws are lubricated with penetrating oil for smooth operations.
