Question and Answers

Q:

Compactor ram won't come up 6228415001NO

A:

Thank you for your question.  I am having a problem bringing up the 622841500no compactor model number.  I would suspect there would be a 3 digit source number to start with such as 665.587 or 363.  First make sure the compactor does not have an " Extra Pack" option.  In Extra Pack the ram will go down and stay down till started again when it will go back up.  A motor switch failure is normally what would cause this problem.  Please check the model number and reply with any additiional details for further assistance.   You can reply below with any additional details for further assistance.  Thank you for using Manage My Life.

Pkay, I learned something...if the screw is turning and the ram does not move, it is likely the nylon drive nuts are stripped. To fix it I had to get it pulled from the counter. At the very bottom of the unit there were two "foot" adjustment screws. You loosen the screws and push the nylon feet up to lower the unit slightly to clear the counter top; then pull the unit out. The top cover has six screws. Take off the top and you can see the ram drive nuts. They are secured to the ram with two screws each. Pull the ran to the top of the drive screws and remove/reinstall drive nuts. Then put back in reverse order. Part were about $30 each side. Hope someone else can learn from my experience.

Great job and I am glad it was something repairable like the drive nuts.
