Plunger stops if I let off the on/off switch
Model Number: KUCC151BWHO Brand:
Kitchen Aid Age:
5 - 10 years
Symptoms -1) plunger stops unless I hold the on/off switch, 2) refuses to solid pack most of the time, and 3) power does not stop most of the time when it reaches the top.
Unless I continue to hold the on/off switch the plunger will immediately stop; if I hold the switch it works fine but as soon as I let off the plunger stops. I replaced the on/off switch but that did not help. I am wondering if I need to replace the solid pack switch too because most of the time it just refuses to solid pack. Do these two switches work off one another?
I just replaced the inside flap switch which is supposed to stop the compactor when it reaches the top. It was working OK but now seems to have stopped working; ie the compactor continues to run when it returns to the top. I can see it flipping the flap which pushes the switch button which should make it go off - this doggone switch is only a few months old; it worked perfectly and turned off the compactor at first but has stopped working again. (In fact I think I bought it from you guys.)
Appreciate your suggestions.
