I am installing the redesigned switch however, the instructions do not tell me where the black wire should be inserted on the new switch and I did no see any markings on it either. Can you please let me know asap. Thanks Dan

Latest Questions

My trash compactor works, but only when I tape down the buttons. When I lift up on the lever it no longer initiates the compaction. Buy, I can tape the black button down (tricking the compactor to think that I have closed the door) and tape the white button down that initiates the compaction and the compactor will cycle. Is this the correct replacement part that I need to fix my trash compactor?

Hello I ordered and have correct replacement part W10342596 I found instructions online but no template: Do you have access to template please it was not included, Starting in the second quarter, compactors went to a new integrated switching redesign. The switch has changed from a normally open switch to a normally closed switch that is held open by a new actuator lever. Replacement parts for the old switch will sub to a kit that contains: a normally closed switch, an actuator assembly, toe guard, a template, two screws and an instruction sheet. Thank you

The toe plate when pushed up activates the compactor. There is a metal switch that connects to the power switch when the door is closed. Where can I buy just the metal part without having to purchase a complete kit?
