Common Issues and Solutions

  • Trash Compactor is Not Compacting – The drive belts or motor being worn out or burnt out are usually the cause of this issue, replacement of either will fix the problem
  • Compactor Does Not Open – The ram may be stuck in the compacting position, we can check the guides, wheels, tracks, or rollers for damage or excess build-up.
  • Compactor Smells After Emptying – Trash may become stuck to or around the ram, cleaning and proper maintenance will prevent this.
  • The Unit is Very Loud – The compactors are generally noisy from smashing garbage but we can make sure everything is in proper working order while performing maintenance.
