Signs You Need Trash Compactor Repairs

While durable, even the best trash compactors can malfunction. Some of the most common issues we encounter include:

  • Failure to start: Trash compactors may fail to start when the drawer doesn’t close properly, the fuses or the circuit breaker fails, or if there’s a problem with the key lock switch.
  • Foul odors: Foul or electrical burning odors can occur when garbage gets stuck to the top of the ram or electrical components fail.
  • Jamming: If the compactor jams, the issue could be an off-balanced load, an overloaded compactor, or roller or foot pedal damage.
  • Long cycling: Long cycles can indicate that the hydraulic pump or hydraulic hoses require attention.
  • Incomplete compaction: Overloading or issues with the start switch, directional switch, or drive motor can cause incomplete compaction.
