Trash Compactor Repair

One of the least enjoyed kitchen tasks in the average home kitchen is taking out the trash. A trash compactor is a huge convenience that reduces the amount of times needed to take garbage out to the curb. When working properly, a trash compactor can decrease the volume of your trash by up to 80%! If your trash compactor is not working, give the professional technicians at Tetra Tech Appliance Repair a call.

Types of Trash Compactors We Repair:

  • Convertible
  • Freestanding
  • Under-The-Counter

Call our technicians if you notice any of the following:

  • Door / Drawer Will Not Open

In order for the door or drawer to open properly, the ram must be completely returned to its starting position. Dirty or damaged parts inside your trash compactor may keep it from functioning. Let our technicians get you working again.

  • Not Compacting

If your trash compactor is not properly compacting your garbage, if could be due to broken belts or a motor that is not functioning properly. These parts can be replaced by one of our professional technicians.

  • Not Working / No Power

If your trash compactor is not working or not powering on, make sure to check the fuse box for any tripped circuits. Some trash compactors will not power on unless the drawer is completely closed. If these don’t get you back in business, give our professional technicians a call.

  • Too Noisy

If your trash compactor is unusually noisy, it could be caused by an issue with a motor, belt, internal gear, or the type of garbage your are compacting. If your issue persists, let the technicians at Tetra Tech Appliance Repair troubleshoot your problem.
