Trash Compactor Repair

We provide Trash Compactor Repair in Corona and surrounding areas.

A trash compactor is often used by a home or business to reduce the volume of trash. Household garbage accumulates at a fast rate, especially in the kitchen. A trash compactor is a household appliance that helps minimize the frequency of trash removal. Typically a trash compactor is installed under a kitchen counter. This device is a trash can that can be turned on to compact trash in the bag, which creates more space and thus holds more than traditional kitchen trash cans.

A trash compactor has a motor inside that operates a press, which lowers into the trash receptacle, compacts the trash, and then raises back up. Trash compactors use specially designed bags. Both paper and plastic compactor bags are available, with the paper bags having a protective lining and the plastic bags being a durable, multi-ply plastic. Compactor bags cost more than typical kitchen trash bags, but are changed less frequently. Compactors are available in 2000, 2300, or 5000 lbs. of compacting ram force. They range from 12 to 18 inches in width, 18 to 24.5 inches in depth, and 34 to 36 inches in height. Standard appliance colors are available including stainless steel; finish options include custom wood panels or you can have a panel installed to match your cabinetry.

Before you call for an emergency service technician to come and perform trash compactor repair, we recommend trying these tips as they will save your time and money.

1) Always be selective when throwing your waste into your trash compactor. For example: always keep food items, bones, glass and any sharps like needles or beverage cans in a separate category as each of these items require a different force and time to be crushed.. It's actually better to just recycle any glass rather then crushing in your compactor as sharp objects can tear the bag or get lodged in the compressor.

2) Always deodorize and disinfect your trash compactor system. This stops bacteria which can flourish on waste that might be fermenting in your unit. And change the unit bag regularly.Sprinkling backing soda prior to installing a new bag can also help to absorb odors.

3) Keep in mind that over filling your trash compacting unit repeatedly can wear your unit components down faster.

4) If equipped, replace the charcoal air filter once or twice per year. Follow the owner’s manual for specific instructions.

5) Try to refrain from allowing liquid to be placed in the compactor as to prevent leaking from the bag or liner.
