Kitchenaid Compactor not stopping at top
« on: March 01, 2009, 10:10:02 PM »

Thank you for the quick response.  I have that tech sheet and have performed every test on the sheet.  The contacts inside both TLDS and motor switch had been arcing but not fused together.  Could this have caused damage to the motor?  Although the motor still works up and down.

Actually, it is the other way around. The motor is drawing excessive amperage, causing the arcing of the switches and probably the malfunction. You should replace the motor.
