Ordered two replacements. Was shipped two redesigned parts (assemblies). Installation required more-or-less complete disassembly of garbage compactor. Unit is under-counter and is heavy and work is all at the bottom of unit. Requires drilling two new holes in metal. Instructions give wrong size drill for screws supplied. Supplied screws are robust stainless sheetmetal screws with tiny number one recessed Phillips heads - nearly impossible to drive through two layers of sheet metal with a little screwdriver. Most non-mechanics would have given up and called a repairman.
