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.
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
