Repair & Advice
The directional switch is located behind the control panel on the front side of the trash compactor. Two phillips screws behind the slide out trash bin holds the control panel in place. If a right angle drive is available the 1/4" hex screws that hold the switch in place come right out. Remove the 1/4" spade connections one at a time and place them on the new switch. Again the screws that hold the switch in place will go back quickly with a right angle drive.
