Default Trash compactor ram stuck in down position
Model Number: TU800SPPB   Brand: Whirlpool   Age: 1 - 5 years

2 1/2 year old Whirlpool TU800SPPB ram is stuck in the down position. When I ran it tonight I heard a faint cracking sound as the ram was compressing, after which the sound of the motor changed in such a way that it sounded like it was no longer straining. I turned the unit off because it was obvious the motor was not doing anything. The motor and power switch are clearly working. Since the ram is down I cannot open the door and cannot easily get to any screws, bolts, etc.
