COMPACTOR USE


How the Compactor Works

The compacting ram is the part of the compactor which compresses the trash. The compacting ram does not go to the bottom of the drawer. You will not see compacting of trash the first few times you load the compactor.

NOTE: The compactor drawer should be more than V2 full before the compactor can begin to compress the load.

You may hear a noise when glass breaks. Strong glass bottles may not break at all. The trash in a full compactor bag will be about V/4 the size of its original bulk.

Load bulky trash, bottles, and cans in the center of the drawer. Bottles or cans not placed in the center may become caught between the ram and the drawer. The Drawer Monitor Switch then senses a “misload” and causes the ram to return to the “up” position without compacting.


Loading

IMPORTANT: Do not push items down into compactor with hands or feet.

NOTE: You will not see compacting of trash the first few times you load the compactor. The compactor drawer should be about 1/2 full before the compactor can begin to compress the load.

1. Open the drawer. Lift and pull the handle or press the toe bar to open the drawer.

NOTE: Pressing the toe bar opens the container only 3″ to 6″ (7.6 cm to 15.2 cm), depending on the load.

2. Place trash in compactor.

■    Wrap or cover wet or messy trash.

■    Do not compact items that may develop offensive odors such as raw meat, fish, grapefruit rinds, disposable diapers, or personal hygiene items.

■    Load bottles or cans on their sides in the center of the drawer. Do not load bottles in an upright position.

3. Close the drawer.

QuietSeries™ Sound Package

The Quiet Series™ Sound Package system helps to maintain a quiet home environment during compactor operation.

NOTE: The contents of the trash may affect the noise level of your compactor. See “Compactor Use.”

Starting the Compactor

1. Press OFF(UNLOCKED) on the PowerPack control. Turn the Key-Knob to START, and then release it.

2. The compactor stops after completing the cycle.

NOTE: When the compacting cycle is done, turn the Key-Knob to OFF. Remove the Key-Knob and store it out of children’s reach.

Using PowerPack On (Locked) Cycle

The Powerpack On (Locked) cycle extends the use of a bag by putting constant pressure on the trash to keep it from springing back. Regular use of the PowerPack On (locked) cycle can increase bag capacity up to 25 percent.

During the PowerPack On (Locked) cycle, the ram will stay in the down position for extra compacting. While the PowerPack On (Locked) cycle is operating, an indicator shows on the control panel. The drawer is locked and cannot be opened when the ram is down. For best results, use the PowerPack On (Locked) cycle for at least 30 minutes at a time.

To use PowerPack On (Locked) cycle:

1. Press POWERPACK ON (LOCKED) on the PowerPack Control. Turn the Key-Knob to START, and then release the Key-Knob.

NOTE: The indicator on the control panel shows when the PowerPack On (Locked) cycle is in use.

2. After 30 minutes or more, turn the Key-Knob to START to raise the compacting ram OR press OFF(UNLOCKED) on the PowerPack control.

NOTE: When the compacting cycle is done, turn the Key-Knob to OFF. Remove the Key-Knob and store it out of children’s reach.

Using the Air Filter or Freshener

The fan-powered charcoal Air Filter absorbs and minimizes odor. The degree of odor in the compactor depends on the type of trash placed in it. The length of time before the filter needs to be replaced varies with the type of trash compacted. Under normal use the filter should be replaced once or twice per year.

To use the filter:

1.    Press ON on the charcoal Air Filter control. The fan creates air movement in the compactor for odor removal.

NOTE: The charcoal Air Filter works even when the Key-Knob is in the OFF position.

IMPORTANT: The air freshener will work with or without the fan.

2.    Press OFF on the charcoal Air Filter control to turn off the fan.

Removing a Filled Bag

When the trash is compacted to the top of the drawer, remove the bag. If the bag is too heavy, compact less trash before emptying it in the future.

IMPORTANT: Do not push items down into compactor with hands or feet.

1.    Pull the drawer completely open.

2.    Remove top of bag from bag retainer buttons. Pull up all four bag cuffs. Close bag with twist tie provided.

Installing a New Bag

Do not use any kind of bag other than those designed especially for use in your compactor. Order replacement compactor bags through your local dealer or by calling the toll-free number on the cover or in the “Assistance or Service” section.

IMPORTANT:

Before installing a new bag, be sure:

■    The drawer side is securely locked.

■    The container is clean and free of debris.

1. Place folded bag into the drawer. Open bag and pull top edges over the drawer top.

2.    Lock bag in place by pulling the four prepunched holes over the bag retainer buttons. Holes will expand over the buttons without damaging the bag.

3.    Press inside of bag against the drawer bottom, sides and corners for a smooth fit.


 

3. Push Side-Lock Latch down and tilt drawer side open.

 

4. Lift out bag.

 

COMPACTOR CARE

Your new compactor is designed to give you many years of dependable service. However, there are a few things you are expected to do in order to properly maintain your compactor. This section will tell you how to clean and care for your compactor.

Changing the Air Filter or Freshener

It is recommended that you use either the charcoal air filter or the air freshener in the filter compartment. The solid air freshener system is an alternative to the air filter and is designed to control odors that might develop in the trash.

To order the correct replacement charcoal filters or air fresheners, call the toll-free number listed on the cover or in the “Assistance&nbsnbsp;or Service” section.

1. Insert fingertips in the air filter cover and pull until the side tabs release. Then, lift the cover to release the bottom tabs.

2. Remove the air filter by pulling the top edge of the filter. The filter should pull out easily. Throw away used filter.

OR

Remove the air freshener by simply lifting out of the filter compartment. Throw away used freshener.

Cleaning

Before cleaning the compactor, turn the Key-Knob (or KeySwitch) to the OFF & LOCK position and remove it.

NOTE: Any services other than those outlined in this section should be performed by a designated service representative.

Cleaning Exterior Surfaces

1.    Wash exterior surfaces (including stainless steel) with a clean sponge or soft cloth and a mild detergent in warm water. Do not use abrasive or harsh cleaners. Rinse and dry thoroughly with a soft cloth.

OR

To replace the air freshener, place the replacement in the filter compartment.

4.    Insert the bottom tabs of the air filter cover and push in until the side tabs snap into place.

3. Hold the lever-action lock down and tilt the side of the drawer out until the lock clears the drawer front.

NOTE: If desired, the drawer side can be removed by tilting it up, then lifting it out.

4.    Wash the interior of the drawer with a clean sponge or soft cloth and a mild detergent in warm water. Rinse and dry thoroughly with a soft cloth.

5.    If the drawer side was removed, slide it back into the tilted position.

6.    Press the lever-action lock (or Side-Lock Latch) down while pushing the drawer side to the upright position.

7.    Latch the drawer side by pushing up the lever-action lock (or Side-Lock Latch).

uJ


Cleaning Before a Vacation

If you will be away for more than a couple of days, remove the compactor bag. Remove the Key-Knob (or Key-Switch) and store it out of children’s reach.

4. Vacuum the inside of the cabinet. Liquid spills or wet trash should be cleaned up by hand, or by using a vacuum designed to pick up liquids.

 

5.    Wash the inside of the cabinet with a clean sponge or soft cloth and a mild detergent in warm water. Rinse and dry thoroughly with a soft cloth.

6.    To replace the drawer, grasp it by the sides and insert the rollers onto the tracks.

7.    Lift the front of the drawer and push it in fully past the stops.

TROUBLESHOOTING

Try the solutions suggested here first in order to avoid the cost of an unnecessary service call.

The drawer won’t open

Trash is not compacting

■ Is the drawer less than half-full? Drawer must be more than half full before trash is compacted.

Your compactor won’t operate

■    Is the power supply cord unplugged? Plug into a grounded 3 prong outlet.

■    Has a household fuse blown, or has a circuit breaker tripped? Replace the fuse or reset the circuit breaker. If the problem continues, call an electrician.

■    Is the drawer completely closed? Close the drawer firmly and start the compactor again.

■    Is the Key-Knob turned all the way to START? Turn the Key-Knob (Key-Switch) fully to START and release (on some models). See “Starting the Compactor.”

■    Did you press ON before pressing START? Press ON before pressing START (on some models). See “Starting the Compactor.”

■    Is the ram all the way up? Drawer will open only when ram is fully raised.

To raise the ram on models with a Key-Knob (or KeySwitch): Turn the Key-Knob (Key-Switch) to START and release. See “Starting the Compactor.”

To raise the ram on models with push button controls:

Press OFF, and then press ON. See “Starting the Compactor.”

■    Is the PowerPack On (Locked) Cycle engaged? The

drawer remains locked until you raise the ram, by turning the Key-Knob (Key-Switch) to START, and release it OR press OFF (UNlOcK) on the PowerPack control.

There is not enough compaction or force

■ Do you use the compacting cycle frequently enough?

Compacting works best when only a few items are loaded.

Bottles don’t break


■ How often do you notice this? Bottles will not break every time. The thickness of the bottle’s glass and the content of the trash load below it may keep the bottle from breaking.
