Hi terik

There are two different kind of rollers on this trash compactor.
The first pair of rollers (#16 on the container brake down diagram) are attached to the rear part of the drawer (aka container).
The second pair of the rollers (#9 on the frame break down diagram) are attached to the body of the trash compactor, in the front.

In order to replace any of them you have to completely remove the drawer from the trash compactor. Also, to replace the front rollers you have to pull the trash compactor out of the cabinet for about 8" to get access to the nuts.

Good luck.
Gene.

Hello Terik: What I did on my masher is pull it out in the open. Remove the back cover (which on mine is the full height. this will allow you to remove the top cover which should expose the inner workings.

Hi! Our compactor has locked up. The compactor came with the house, dated possibly late 1980's. Basic one switch that reads lock, on, off. Model number is in the door which will not open. Any suggestions. Ann

Our trash compactor "ram" is locked down, the door popped partially out, the controls will not work now. How can we correct this?:eek:
