Trunnion Nut - Metal

The trunnion nut (also referred to as a power nut) is made of metal and sold individually. This nut is part of your trash compactor assembly. The trunnion nut has spiked edges and attaches to the side of the ram. When the power screw moves in a circular motion, it feeds through the nut, which pulls the ram down to compact the trash.

The problem with this repair arises after you have removed the old trunion nut and you are trying to get the new one to seat into the narrow bracket that surrounds it and keeps it from turning. You can only screw the trunion nut on so far and then it runs into the edges of the bracket. I found that by aligning the new trunion nut at the proper angle and then... read more
