Last night I was using my trash compactor to mash some empty
Last night I was using my trash compactor to mash some empty clean cans before taking them to the recycle bin. The compactor stopped working while mashing and the front opened just a tiny bit. I tried shoving it closed and it wouldn't go. I trie pulling it out more and it wouldn't go. Turning the button to on or start didn't do anything. I can't get it open to see what may be jammed inside. Please help.

We have a KUCC151LSS2 trash compactor. The solid pack feature
We have a KUCC151LSS2 trash compactor. The solid pack feature has stopped working. The compactor works normally with solid pack off. This has occurred before, but it has resumed working normally. Is there a reset sequence to restore normal operations or will I need to replace a part(s)? How do I troubleshoot?

Customer: Names Matt, My Trash compactor ZCG3500Dss has been out of service for a while. The compactor wont retract but it will go down. I have manually retracted it. Any ideas? JA: Thanks. Can you give me any more details about your issue? Customer: It did retract one time but I was afraid to power it back up and try again because manually retracting was such a pain. I replced the limiter switch before, I think thats what it was called. Though maybe it was a glitch in the control panel. I can't find a 12" compactor so I may need to repair this one. JA: OK got it.
