Q:

Normal pac/Extra pac switch 66513605790 Kenmore Compactor

A:

Thank you for your question and I understand your concern.
 
The new switch has three terminals that are labeled "Y", "O" and "OB". The Yellow wire will connect to terminal "Y". The Orange wire will connect to terminal "O". The Orange wire with the Black stripe will connect to terminal "OB". The missing 4th terminal was used for the LIGHT which your model does not show to have so you would not connect or use one of the Yellow wires. Tape the terminal of the Yellow wire not used with electrical tape so it cannot short to ground. 
 
I hope this helpful.

Q:

My quiet PAC washer has no power just used it a hour before

A:

Thank you for your question and I understand your concern.

As Joseph suggested in the first response; I will need to have the model number of your washer in order to provide any model specific information.

If the washer will not power up or fill with water, I would check and make sure the wall outlet has the proper voltage supply of 110-120 volts. If you have some other small appliance like a hair dryer or an electric drill, disconnect the washer power cord and plug the other electrical appliance in the outlet to see if will operate of not. If it does not operate; locate the house circuit breaker dedicated for the washer and reset the breaker. If the washer is plugged into a GFCI (Ground Fault Circuit Interrupter) outlet, reset the GFCI circuit breaker and then see if the washer will operate.

So that's what I can tell you at this point. I can give you more detailed help if you could provide me with the complete model number. The model numbers are typically located around the outer perimeter of the tub opening after opening the lid or door. If you could supply me with that information I will be happy to assist you further.

Q:

What would cause my Kenmore trash compactor to short cycle when extra pac is used?

A:

I do not have full understanding of what you mean when you say it's short cycling. If you’re indicating that the ram goes down and stops when using the extra pac feature this would be normal operation. The ram is supposed to stop at the bottom to provide the extra pac. In order to make the ram come back up, rotate the start knob to start or press normal pack.

Now, if the motor stops running when you release the start knob when extra pac is used, the failure could be a stuck contact on the motor centrifugal switch. I added an image below with the technical data sheet with troubleshooting.

SOLID PACK / EXTRA PACK (IF USED) - When the cycle switch is moved to SOLID PACK (O to O/BK), power to the motor run windings is routed through an extra switch on the motor centrifugal switch. This switch (O/BK to Y) closes when the motor reaches normal run speed. When the motor stalls during compaction, the centrifugal switch operates and power is removed from the run windings. The ram is in the compacting or down position. To return the ram to the normal rest position, turn the knob to start or move the SOLID PACK switch to NORMAL.

I recommend calling a service technician to diagnose and repair your trash compactor.
