read and save these instructions

important safeguards

read all instructions carefully before operating compactor.

Basic precautions should always be taken when using an electrical appliance – including the following:

1.Close supervision is necessary when any appliance is operated near children. Do not allow the appliance to be used as a toy, or to run unattended at any time. Turn key to “OFF” and remove it to lock the compactor. Store the key out of reach to prevent children or others from operating or tampering with the compactor.

2.Do not push trash into compactor drawer with hands or feet. Trash might contain broken glass, sharp pieces of metal, etc., which would cause injury.

3.Do not compact volatile material. Paint, oily rags, lighter fluid cans, and paint thinner cans could combust spontaneously and cause an explosion and/or fire.

4.Do not compact aerosol cans or any other containers still holding toxic chemicals, insecticides, or combustible contents. Fumes may be released which are hazardous to health.

5.Do not compact lighted cigarettes, cigars, or other hot or burning items.

6.Do not overload the compactor.

7.Be careful when removing and carrying bag. Broken glass or other sharp objects may pierce bag. Do not overload trash bag with heavy material such as glass.

8.Do not operate this unit with an extension cord.

9.Use only Broan approved accessories.

10.Do not touch moving parts.

11.Do not take this appliance apart. Incorrect reassembly can cause electrical shock when operated.

12.Do not operate with a damaged power cord, plug, motor, or after damage of any kind. Have the compactor examined, and all repairs made, by an authorized serviceman.

13.This compactor is FOR HOUSEHOLD USE ONLY. Use it only as described in this manual.

14.Unplug the appliance from outlet before servicing.

grounding instructions

Important: TO REDUCE THE RISK OF ELECTRIC SHOCK - Please read carefully.

FOR PERSONAL SAFETY, THIS APPLIANCE MUST BE PROPERLY GROUNDED. The power cord on this appliance is equipped with a three-prong (grounding) plug which mates with a standard three-prong (grounded) receptacle as illustrated above.

If there is a two-prong outlet located where you will install the compactor, it is your responsibility to have it replaced with a properly grounded three-prong wall receptacle. No adapter shall be used with this product.

DO NOT, UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCES, CUT OR REMOVE THE THIRD (GROUND) PRONG FROM THE POWER CORD PLUG.

The GREEN (or GREEN & YELLOW) conductor in the cord is the grounding wire. Never connect the GREEN (or GREEN & YELLOW) wire to a live terminal.

A 120 volt, 60 Hz., A.C., 15 amp fused and grounded electrical supply is required (time-delay fuse or circuit breaker is recommended). It is recommended that a SEPARATE CIRCUIT serving only this appliance be provided.

DO NOT USE AN EXTENSION CORD WITH THIS APPLIANCE.

Unpacking the trash compactor

The trash compactor is shipped from the factory with packing material in the trash bucket and the ram in the down position. Return the ram to the up position by plugging the unit in, turning the key lock switch to the “ON” position and closing the door. Once the door is closed the unit will run and the ram will travel to the “UP” position. Open the trash bucket and remove the packing material.

Your Broan Elite Compactor has been designed to require minimum space without loss of capacity whether freestanding or built-in.

free-standing

As shipped, the Compactor is only configured for built in installations. This appliance can be converted from builtin to free-standing with the use of Toe Kick Accessory Kit Model 15TCTK (sold separately). If additional cord length is required for free-standing installation, remove the cord clamp and wire tie on the back of the unit.

CAUTION: Failure to use Toe Kick Accessory Kit Model 15TCTK in a free-standing installation may cause the compactor to be unstable during operation.
