When pedal is lifted compactor makes a humming sound but nothing moves. Took apart and replaced a clip on the gear that was off. Worked fine for several days; now doing the same thing. Read several forums with others having same problem. Some said replacing the directional switch solved their problem. In the diagram, it appears there are 2 directional switches (part # 102)? Also the top limit/directional switch (part # 138)... same thing? Is there a way to test the switches? Which switch should I replace and how many of each do I need?

Tim for Model Number GCG1580

ANSWER Hello Tim, It sounds like the door tilt switch WC21X10006 is the issue but it is normally caused by the drawer being out of whack. You should check the rollers and tracks to determine if they are contributing to the issue or if the switch is just failing.
