Lever that presses directional switch to tell ram to go down is missing. Can I buy just a replacement lever?

When I turn the knob to start the cycle, the compactor goes through the full cycle and when completed makes a pounding noise and won't shut off until I return the knob to the off position. I was told to change the directional switch and ordered this from you and changed it. The unit still won't shut off until I turn the knob. Any other suggestions?

The ram will not stay down on extra pack. It returns as if normal compacting.

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?
