Directional Switch

Product Description

Directional Switch Specifications

This is a top limit directional switch for a trash compactor. The directional switch reverses the motor direction when the trash compactor has reached the top of the drawer. If your trash compactor is not completing the compact cycle properly, you may have to test the switch. If you have a multimeter, you can perform a continuity test before ordering this part to determine if a continuous electrical path is present in the switch. If there is no electrical path in your switch, you will need to replace it. This is an authentic replacement part sourced directly from the original manufacturer.

WC21X10004
Trash compactor would not shut off at end of cycle. Would have to manually turn it off.
Removed compactor from opening. Using screw driver unthreaded 4 screws from top and then removed the on/off dial. Face plate came off easy and provided access to relay switch bank. Unscrewed two screws which allowed both relay switches to be removed and replaced. Recommend replacing both relay switches. Reassembled and compactor worked fine. Very easy job. If your compactor is making a machine gun noise during the return cycle then this will solve your problem.
