Rotary Switch Kit
PartSelect Number PS382679
Manufacturer Part Number 675382
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.

Directional Switch
PartSelect Number PS11744742
Manufacturer Part Number WP777811
The function of the directional switch on your trash compactor is to ensure the ram lowers to compress your trash, then returns to the top position. If your trash compactor does not complete this task, will not stop at the end of the compacting cycle, or is noisy during operation, you may need to replace the directional switch. 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.

Off-Switch Actuator Kit
PartSelect Number PS3489806
Manufacturer Part Number W10342596
This kit contains everything you will need to replace your faulty off-switch actuator, including: normally closed switch, toe guard, template, 2 screws, and actuator. If your trash compactor keeps running after the cycle is complete, you may have a defective off-switch. The off-switch is used to supply power to the motor to initiate the compaction cycle. Check to see if the off switch has been damaged, and that it is working properly. However, if the switch is damaged, or will not stop the cycle when the button is engaged, the off-switch will need to be replaced. NOTE: This part has been redesigned by the manufacturer, but will still function the same as the original part.

Directional Switch
PartSelect Number PS1016698
Manufacturer Part Number WC21X10004
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.
