Trash compactor wouldn't compact when the food pedal was engaged

I removed 2 screws that held the brokent piece in place. I positioned the new piece and replaced the 2 screws. This is the 3rd time I've done this repair myself, it's so easy.

Metal flange on foot switch broke

After reading on your site how easily this problem was solved, we ordered part, received it in 5 days, and truly just screwed into place. Compacted immediately!

Compactor would not turn on via the foot pedal

The metal actuator had broken off on my trash compactor. It is held by 2 screws. It was easy to remove the 2 screws to replace the actuator. It was somewhat obvious which way it attached to the frame in order for the actuator to hit the white bush button switch located on the lower right of the compactor.
