The rotary switch kit is also known as the start switch or the on and off switch, and is used to power on your trash compactor. The function of the rotary switch kit is to control the electrical power that is going into your trash compactor. This process happens when the switch sendsvoltage to the motor to start the compacting cycle. If your switch is broken the trash compactor will not start. A multimeter test can be performed to test the switch for continuity. The rotary switch kit will come with an on and off rotary switch, and two chrome knobs.
