Common Trash Compactor Problems

Like other appliances in your household, your trash compactor requires routine maintenance to continue doing its job effectively. When you experience problems with your trash compactor, the appliance repair experts at Mr. Appliance of Lexington, KY are here to help. Some of the most common trash compactor problems we repair include:

  • Trash Compactor Won’t Turn On – You should check to ensure the drawer or door is completely closed. You can also check the fuse, circuit breaker, outlet, and power cord to ensure nothing is out of the ordinary. If the key lock switch on the trash compactor is set all the way to start and you still can’t get it to work, reach out to our team.
  • Trash Compactor Isn’t Compacting Garbage – If your trash compactor isn’t effectively compacting your garbage, this could be caused by broken driving belts or a burned-out motor. Our experts can diagnose the issue and repair it promptly.
  • Door or Drawer Won’t Open – If your trash compactor door or drawer doesn't open, you should check to ensure the ram has returned to the top of the compactor. Next, inspect the appliance for damaged or dirty guides, rollers, tracks, or wheels. If you can’t find the source of the problem, our technicians would be happy to take a look.
  • Noisy Trash Compactor – It's common for trash compactors to make noise while operating. If you notice your appliance making excessive noise when it’s compacting garbage, there might be a larger problem that needs to be inspected by the appliance repair technicians at Mr. Appliance of Lexington, KY.
  • Trash Compactor Smells Bad – Trash doesn’t smell great, but if your trash compactor still smells bad after taking the garbage out, you might have trash stuck to the ram or other parts inside the appliance. Regularly cleaning your trash compactor is an excellent preventative maintenance task, and the experts at Mr. Appliance provide professional trash compactor cleaning services.
