Trash compactors

A recent innovation, the trash compactor dramatically reduces the volume of household waste. And it is generally trouble-free. Learn here how it works and what to do in case you encounter a problem.
TO GET AN IDEA of just how much trash, including bottles, cans, cartons and paper, a trash compactor can compact, visualize two over-flowing 20-gallon garbage cans holding, say, 40 pounds. The trash compactor can take this junk and reduce its volume (not its weight) into a neat package of approximately 9 inches by 16 inches by 17 inches. This package, which in most cases is also deodorized, is then placed but for the trash collector.
Electrically, a trash compactor requires no more than any other major appliance. A grounded 120-volt electrical supply is needed that conforms to local electrical codes. The unit should be plugged into its own 15-ampere circuit. Most units are designed to slip beneath standard kitchen countertops. Or, if you wish, you can leave the compactor free-standing. The unit must be level, however. This is accomplished by turning leveling legs screwed into the base of the compactor until the bubble of a carpenter's level zeroes itself, telling you that the compactor is straight. How a trash compactor is operated
THE TYPICAL TRASH COMPACTOR has two controls. One is a start switch. The other is a safety switch. In some models, the safety switch is actually a key-operated lock. If there are small children in the house, this permits you to turn the machine off by locking it with a key. After all, you don't want Junior "compacting" the family cat. Some trash compactors incorporate a "stop" feature with the start control. The start and stop switches are combined into rocker-type switches, allowing you to flip easily from one to the other. The "stop" side of the switch, when engaged, opens up a contact in the feed line of the motor to stop the ramming cycle immediately and at any point.
Why would this be necessary? Suppose your phone rings. A trash compactor does make some noise. Whatever, you can stop the ramming at any time you wish. After the "stop" side of the switch has been depressed, depressing the switch to "start" does not automatically allow the ram to continue on its cycle to compact garbage. Instead, the ram returns to its retracted position so that full force can be applied. If you now want to compact the garbage, you must once more depress the "start" switch. When the trash compactor is turned on, it automatically goes through one cycle only. A ram moves down on the trash with a force equal to approximately 2,000 pounds of pressure. At this point, when compression can no longer be done, the motor "stalls" and the ram reverses itself, returning to its original "retracted" position
