Common Trash Compactor Problems Solved

Because trash compactors are relatively simple appliances, there are not too many things that can go wrong with them. In our 30+ years of experience, we have had ample opportunities to troubleshoot and solve all the following common trash compactor problems.

Problem: The trash compactor won’t turn on.
Solution: We need to check the power cord and the electrical supply. Problems with the drawer latch may also need to be corrected.

Problem: The trash compactor won’t smash that trash.
Solution: The most common fix for this problem is to replace or tighten old, worn out drive belts. It is also possible the motor might need to be replaced.

Problem: The trash compactor’s door or drawer won’t open.
Solution: The tracks, guides, rollers, or wheels that the door or drawer moves along may be dirty or damaged. We can clean or replace them as needed.

You can rely on our technicians to provide thorough troubleshooting of your unit before beginning work. This ensures that your trash compactor gets fixed right the first time and you never end up paying for parts or repairs that are not actually needed.
