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.

The repair was simple as you can imagine. Thought I could buy these legs at any big box store or at least at the local hardware store. No such luck. Partselect had the right product---easy to order and easy to install. Things around here are great.

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.

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!!
