My trash compactor was banging when it reaches the end of the compacting cycle. I removed the top limit switch and check it with an ohm meter. It aprears to be funtioning. However, when I reinstalled the top limit switch the unit doesn't cycle at all when you press the on button, it just begins to bang. Can I get a wire diagram to double check my placement of wire. If wire correctly then what? Thanks Ron

Compactor made noise while compacting trash & would not stop noise or return until power turned off at breaker. Turned breaker back on & ram returned to top & stopped. Tried again & same thing happened again. Changed plastic gear drive set, lubricated & retried. New gear stripped on 1st try. Small gear stripped both times. Pulled stripped gear off & rotated until ram went all the way to the bottom to be sure side gear units were in time with each other & they were fine & no binding until down against plastic stops at bottom of stroke. Does it have a thermal switch that tells the motor to stop & reverse before stripping the gear? All I need is the small drive gear to try again, but I am afraid it will strip it again unless replaced with steel gears. What do you suggest?

My trash compactor compacts, will reverse but does not shut off when it reaches the top. It bangs and I have to shut if off with the off switch. I already changed the directional switch, AP2984168; but that didn't fix it. What else could it be?

When you go to compress the unit chaters (oscilates) and the motor overheats after 30-40 seconds then trips. After a few minutes you can repeat the process. Hold the direction switch foward, with the cover removed and the platen will go down part way and the motor cuts out .

The ram stats and goes down just fine, but when it is fully extended it will stop and chatter until I turn it off. When I turn it back on the ram comes back up and stops. I replaced the directional switch and stil have the same problem. HELP?

Have Whirlpool trash compactor model tu8100xtp2. Ram will compact but not return to top. It just buzzes when in down position. Can bring it up by opening botton and turning gears, but then it just goes down and stays.

Ram does not seem to compactor trash fully. Seems it must only be going part way. No strange sounds or any other syptoms. Could it be this switch?
