Be sure to disconnect your trash compactor from the power source before completing this repair. This is a fairly easy repair. After you open the control panel of the compactor, all you will need to do is unplug the old switch from the electrical wires, and plug the new switch in.

They measure approximately 15 inches wide x 15 inches high and are made from 50 percent post-consumer recycled plastic. This pack of 15 trash compactor bags is a genuine OEM replacement part, and will fit most rectangular 15-inch trash compactors.
