COMPACTOR CHATTERS/OSCILLATES. \
DOOR IS READY TO BE SHUT, COMPACTOR SHOULD BE READY TO GO BUT JUST MAKES CHATTERING NOISE W/O RAM MOVING WHEN DOOR IS CLOSED. OPEN DOOR , CHATTERING STOPS.
THERE ARE AT LEAST 4 SWITCHES INVOLVED.
A MASTER ON/OFF ALONG WITH 2 LEVER ACTION UNITS:1 FOR THE AIR FILTER CONTROL , 2ND FOR SELECTION OF RAM TOTAL CYCLE( TRAVEL DOWN & RETURN) VS RAM COMPRESSION ONLY = UNITS CHATTERS WITH EITHER POSITION
A TOE ACTUATOR "ON" SWITCH
A POSITION SWITCH INSIDE THE UNIT THAT SEEMS TO SENSE THE BASKET IS IN PLACE.
A SWITCH ON THE FRONT FRAME THAT SEEMS TO SENSES THE DOOR IS CLOSED.
WHAT'S MY PROBLEM?
