Fixed Every Time

I have used Appliance Medic twice; once for my Maytag washer and once for my refrigerator. I live in new city NY Both times my appliances were fixed properly and I have not had any problems since. They scheduled me quickly, gave me a reasonable time frame, and kept in touch to let me know when they were on their way. I recommend them.

Garbage Compactor Repair

Garbage-CompactorTrash Compactor is the great invention which unfortunately is not widely used. Only around 3% of homes in US have it. The purpose of trash compactor is to compact 2-3 bags of garbage down into one bag. That saves trash storage space as well as disposal labor.

There is a mechanism that is crushing down the trash. All is required to close the unit and turn the knob and it will crush all the garbage all the way down. The ram (the platform that presses down on the garbage) in the trash compactor squeezes the trash flat with tremendous force. There also another future that is helpful and that is an air filter due to the fact that simply trash smells.

Overall trash compactors are very easy to maintain as all that needs to be done is cleaning of the interior of your trash compactor, ram and any part that comes into direct contact with the garbage.

We are reachable via both email and telephone: 845-617-1111, so if you’re interested in repairing or even maintaining your garbage compactor please don’t delay to drop us a line. We have already handled garbage compactor repair jobs of all of sorts and never use anything at all but the best garbage compactor repair parts and methods.

But like with any mechanism there is a possibility of something to go wrong. Sometimes items such as cans or jars will go inside the bag of the trash compactor and can cause the problem. Unusual noise during the crashing might be a sign that you need a professional who can look into the matter. There is also possibility that air filter needs to be changed (if there is one) at least once or twice a year. Garbage and other things can build up in the rollers, tracks, and wheels., so replacement might be necessary. Tension on the drive chain or belt should not be loose and it is preferable to check it once a year otherwise it might damage gears and sprockets.

Most common problems include: The drawer wont close/open Compactor is too noisy Ram is stuck in the middle Trash is not compacted Failed Switch Motor can burn out
