Frame diagram shows 2 - directional switches #ap3860854 , do I need to order 2?

The compactor stopped working and only hummed when I started the compaction cycle. I replaced the motor and now the unit starts. But the compactor ram only moves about two inches and then stops. I hear the motor click when the ram stops. I reset the ram to the start position and can restart but only after the motor clicks again after a few minutes. When I restart, the ram still only goes 2 inches. I noticed that the drawer trip switch was flashing blue inside, so I think it might be a short in it. So I think I should order a new switch. Given the problem with the travel of the ram, should I also get the directional and limit switches? I can't figure out why the ram won't complete the cycle once started. Thanks.

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?

Latest Questions

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?
