My trash compactor will lower the ram but will continue to run and the ram will stay down, not reversing back up. If I shut if off and then turn back on the ram will return to the full up position. Model # TU8003XLP0. Any help would be appreciated.

Most likely the problem with your trash compactor is a bad directional switch.

The complete instructions how to test and replace it you can find in the technical data sheet.

- The part number for the directional switch AP2984168

- Here are the break down diagrams for the Whirlpool trash compactor Model TU8003XLP0

Default Have the Tu8003XXLP0 motor wont stay running

The automatic cycling of my compactor won't stay running. I hit the switch to start and it starts to compact, then if I leave the switch alone, it stops, If I start it again, it will stop if I let the switch go.

IF I hold the switch in position, it will cycle all the way down, and then return up, and when it gets to the top it will do a clunkidy clunkidy, as it still wants to go up, but cant and at that point I will stop the switch, and can open, as it wont be in any down position.

Which part is probably gone? One of the switches may be bad or out of position or something in front of it?

Thanks.
