Kenmore Trash Compactor Woes
Posted 17 July 2005 - 07:38 AM
I have a VERY old Kenmore trash compactor that came with the house when we bought it so I'm not sure exactly how old it is, but I'm pretty sure it's over 10 years. I don't know the model number and I doubt I can get to it at the moment.
After turning it on to "compact", the noise got the attention of my grandson who kept turning the button to compact it over and over again. My husband decided he should just take the button off (theoritically a good idea, but in practice it was a disaster!). When he did, a washer came off as well. Then my grandson just kept poking his fingers in the hole left by the button. This just pushed all sorts of things down to where they shouldn't be and I can't get the button back on. The really bad part is that the ramming part was only halfway up so we can't open the door to empty the trash that's in there.
Can anyone even tell me where to start???

Some battles may not be worth fighting. If it's very old, maybe it's time to think about replacement.

The good news is that I managed to get the door open enough to find the model number: 665.1398581
If I can get the front off the top part of the compactor, it shouldn't be a problem to fix. I'm pretty sure it comes off, but I don't see any screws or clips.
