Default KitchenAid Trash Compactor - doesn't compact
Model Number: KUCS180   Brand: Kitchen Aid   Age: More than 10 years   

Appliance Parts from AppliancePartPros.com


Just moved into house with KitchenAid Trash Compactor Model KUCS180, installed many years ago. Prior owner says it has never been used. Looks unused. I've never used a compactor.

Following the manual, I put about 2/3 full of fairly light stuff in the big drawer, turned key to Start (and tried turning fan to On a few times; there are no other switches), then it makes a noise like what a compactor might sound like (and no odd sounds of machine stress, like grinding), completes its cycle, but when I open the drawer nothing has changed. As if the "ram" doesn't come down.

I'm trying to figure out if I'm doing something wrong, or if I should call a repair person. Thanks for any tips.
