Opened the compactor bin. Removed the failed actuator base (two screws) using hardened phillips # 2 screwdriver. prepped the new part holes by inserting the screws into (too small on replacement part) holes prior to installing(used needle nose pliers to hold part while prepping holes). Backed out screws from replacement part then installed part with same two screws using hardened phillips # 2 screwdriver. Tested functionality and received hug from son's grateful wife. P.S. I printed the parts diagram showing the part relationships from the website. Very helpful in repair planning. Recommend this to all. Do not know why the two rubber grommets were included in kit as they seem to apply to the horizontal screws securing the pedel itself that the actuator is installed on and are not needed for the repair.Regards,DougM
Very simple. 2 screws to unscrew - and then screwed the new actuator in. took less than 10 minutes.
Replaced the broken part with a new part by attaching with 2 small sheet metal screws.
The part has broken several times in several years. Each time it required a service call with a hefty fee. The fourth time I decided to do it myself. I ordered the part. It came faster than a service man would have and I installed it myself with a screwdriver in about three minutes. I will treat myself to lunch out with the girls with the money I saved!!!
Removed the screws holding the remaining piece and replaced it with the new part. Hardest part of this whole issue was making sure that I had the correct part on order. Would have liked to have been able to blow up the diagram for easier viewing.
Losses two screws, old part off; install two new screws, new part on. Piece of cake
I opened the door of the compactor and removed the old actuator with a scewdriver and replaced the new actuator.
Unscrewed 2 phillups screws, put new actuator on with 2 phillups screws. Works fine
No problem replacing the spring steel tab that actuates the switch for the compactor. My concern it is a poor design and will have to be replaced on a regular basis. Where the spring steel tab is attached to the toe pedal the spring is bent at a 90 degree angle and this is where it broke..high stress area, constantly being worked at this juncture. Expensive little part!!
Put the screws in. Unfortunately, there were no directions and the screws sent didn't match those that came out, so I have to substitute screws. I only needed the directions to find out how to use the two rubber washers that were included.
Repair took just a couple of minutes. Two screws to install. Easy as pie.
First I removed the two screws that held the broken element in place. I replaced it with the new metal actuator. TA DA! Ordering was very easy even for me a girl! Shipment could have been faster though.
It simply required removing two screws that were holding in the remaining piece of the broken actuator, positioning the new actuator, and reinstalling the screws.
