Compacter not working, door jammed.

The specifics of the repair (replacement of broken main gear) are well covered above. There were only two points of difficulty. The first was fixing things enough to be able to open the door to get the model number to order the parts! A useful reminder to me to make _sure_ that all model numbers of all appliances are recorded and accessible! The second difficulty - and not so much of one once I figured it out - was trying to get the thing plugged back in! It's a built in, and our contractor must have used a micrometer to measure for the opening. No chance of plugging it in as it came out of the cabinetry. It took me a while to realize that the strain relief fitting holding the cord at the top rear of the unit was an opening clip

Very old compactor stripped plastic gears.

First was going to replace but found new one is about $700! Gear set came with everything, right down to roll pin and hints on final adjustment. Getting the compactor out of the cabinet and turned over was about the hardest part. Installation went easy with everything fitting perfectly and I saved $700!
