I have a Broan trash compactor Model # 1050-E.

When I go to run it the motor runs but nothing happens. I sounds as if a gear is stripped. I took off the back and the drive chain was off the sprocket. I puti it back on and then the sound like a stripped gear was noticible.

Any thought on what this might be?

The question is, "What time zone do you have set in your profile settings?"

I don't need a manual. I need someone to help diagnose what the problem is. I know you are connected to Repair Clinic.com They used to have a place you could ask a question and get a quick response. Now all they have are FAQs withe questions like "how often should I take out the trash?" not very helpful

Okay, don't use the manuals that Reg linked you to and open the machine so that you can visually inspect the ram for plastic wound around it.  Also, again, do not use the manual to inspect the sprockets for deformations or missing teeth and the gearbox mounting plate and screws.  The photos in the manual and the other diagnostic explanations would just confuse you with more information.

Stephen47, you may have run into an item us Tech's call " There ain't no such manual"........So what a tech does is get one that is close.....( Some times the 'bells and whistles' are just that, flashy do-dads to grab your attention of the control panel  ) .......Have you down loaded the service manuals provided by RegsUS ?????  Did you compare the units, service manuals to your unit ????.... Example.....I.E.   page 11, Item 108, driven sprocket, P/N 93110434, 50 tooth....The same..........Chances  are your unit is going to be almost like these units.... They probably will operate the same,  Ram not operating, check XXXX......  Get down and get dirty, tell us what you find...................You will need the complete model number to order parts :thumbsup: but not necessarily to work on them... .

Turns out it is the gear box assembly. The nylon gear has a few teeth missing.

I have done many repairs on this machine and I have never had to take is far apart as I did this time. I just hope I remember how it goes back together.
