Why is my trash compactor so noisy?
To avoid personal injury or death, disconnect your appliance from its power source before you start any troubleshooting or repair work. Use caution when working inside any appliance.
You hear noise from the unit because a motor is running, and operating a ram that is driven by a belt or by gears. You may also hear the trash getting compacted.
