This kit contains everything you will need to replace your faulty off-switch actuator, including: normally closed switch, toe guard, template, 2 screws, and actuator. If your trash compactor keeps running after the cycle is complete, you may have a defective off-switch. The off-switch is used to supply power to the motor to initiate the compaction cycle. Check to see if the off switch has been damaged, and that it is working properly. However, if the switch is damaged, or will not stop the cycle when the button is engaged, the off-switch will need to be replaced.
NOTE: This part has been redesigned by the manufacturer, but will still function the same as the original part.

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.
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!
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.
