There are two micro switches side by side at top of compactor frame on my GE compactor . The ram travels down fine and returns back to the top but power does not turn off and motor keeps driving. Is this caused by one of these two switches? Why are there two?
ANSWER Hi. The top switch is a ON/Off switch part # WC21X10005. If the start switch contacts are fused then this will occur. Next to it is a top limit (Directional) switch part # WC21X10004. If it is stuck on (ohms closed) then it will create this action. Thank You.
