Need Appliance Repair Help? Ask a Technician for Answers ASAP
Hello. My name is ***** ***** I'll be helping you with your appliance question today. Please wait a few moments while I review your question.
So there is a common problem with this compactor where the bottom plastic gear breaks or strips out and then the motor just runs but nothing else will run. Below is a link to the gear kit you'd need to replace. You will need to uninstall the compactor, tip it on it's side, and remove the bottom sheet metal panel in order to access the plastic gears for replacement.

Try to turn the compactor on when it's on it's side and make sure the gears are stripping out. If it won't work then you'd need a technician out because that is very difficult to un-jam something if the compactor is jammed in the bin. At 35 years old it may be better to just replace the disposal.
Hello again. I'm just following up because I haven't heard back from you and I see this question is still open and unrated. Is there anything else I can help you with?
