NUT POWER ASM
Fix Number FIX12722842
Manufacturer Part Number WC01X20127This power nut is for trash compactor and attaches to the side of the ram and is threaded. As the power screw rotates, it feeds through the power nut pulling the ram down to compact the trash.

One of the 2 Nut Power nylon screws failedThe "smasher" got jammed sideways when this part failed on one side. Could not open the front door. Had to pull the whole unit out, take to garage and repair. Start by taking bottom panel off. This gives you access to the chain drive. Put on some leather gloves and turn chain CCW until "smasher unit comes loose. Pull out of top of unit (other panels need to be removed and front control panel must be removed also). Now replace both nylon "NUT POWER ASM" parts. If you are handy, you can do this repair easily and save yourself $$$ Read more...
Drive Gear - White
Fix Number FIX2364787
Manufacturer Part Number WC22X10005Used with trash compactors.

After compacting trash, motor continued running but compactor platter did not moveRepair is easy and direct once you understand the issue is the fractured drive gear. To repair, pull the trash compactor out and turn on its side or back. You'll see a galvanized container covering over half the underside held by three sheet metal screws, three on back, two on front. If you have a drill driver removing all the screws is very easy. You'll have to remove screws on back to access the three rear screws at the very bottom, if they are under the back cover. Otherwise, remove the three rear screws and two front screws. Remove the cover, note how the gear is installed, remove the retainer clip, remove the broken gear, if that's the problem, and press the new gear on, then reinstall the clip. I had to grease the shaft and really force the gear on the shaft. Then lubricate the gear and chain, install the cover, the 5 screws, the back and its screws. Read more...

small chain drive sprocket teeth strippedUnder the front switch cover there was a small envelope with instructions on how to remove and replace the gear box. The hardest task was to install the two allen head bolts that attach the assembly to the main body. The nuts are loose after the bolts are removed and are in a difficult spot to reach. Read more...
