The repairman wanted $600 to replace the motor. A replacement compactor was $800. The motor was $220 and I did it alone in 30 minutes! Easy to do.

Removed the trash container. Pulled out the compactor. Laid it on its side. Removed four srews from the bottom panel, two from the back. 4 Bolts held the motor on. Removed those, took out the motor. DId not replace or move the chain drive or large gear. Replaced the motor and it works perfectly.
