    Description of part number ps11744741 indicates this quantity of 2 wp777533 power nuts, is this correct. I do need 2.
    For model number kenmore 1396581
    Hello Terry, Thank you for the question. Very sorry but I am not showing anywhere in the description that it states it is sold as a set of 2. This Power nut is sold individually. Hope this helps!

    Not a question, but your part number PS11744641 is also a direct replacement for the power nuts on the Frigidaire tcu 3h. I guess there are not many oems producing the power screws and nuts. It's also the same nut as Whirlpool part no 777533
    For model number Frigidaire TCU-3H
    Hi Ray, Thank you for the statement. Actually I see that part number PS11744641 is a bake element while part number WP777533 is the power nut that you are referring to. Some times manufacturers will make parts for other manufacturers but in your case Frigidaire does not offer a replacement for the nut that originally goes with your appliance. That part number is: 5308003543. I hope that helps!

    My compactor made a loud racket. I found the pinion and main drive gear were slipping and teeth were worn. I will order new ones from you, but I wonder if my power nuts ($$$) should also be replaced.. I suspect they are much easier to replace should they fail later.
    For model number TU8000XRP1
    Hello Michael, thank you for your question. We do recommend replacing them at the same time. We hope this helps!

      Compactor out of line and would not shut off.
      Pulled compactor out on a piece of cardboard. Used socket set to take top off and evaluate the problem. Power nut was not holding on one side. We ordered two power nuts. Decided to repair only the unlevel side. Fast and easy and cheaper than a new compactor. Whirlpool compactor is 28 years old and working like a charm. Thanks for the diagram and accessibility to parts.

      The compactor would only stop and reverse direction if you turned the switch off and on again
      I slid the compactor out of the cabinet space it sits in and unplugged it. I removed the two screws that hold the control plate on and it then lifts up and off to reveal the screws that hold the top down. Then I removed the two screws that hold the top of the unit on and removed the top. I then put the switch plate back on and plugged the unit back in and ran it so I could see it operate from above. It went all the way down compacting the drawer but kept running and did not reverse and come back up. I figured it was the directional switch and ordered that. The plastic power nuts that the unit rides up and down on looked worn so for $10 each I ordered a pair of them also. The parts arrived in 3 days. I decided to install the power nuts first. When I removed the metal casing that holds them I saw that wings on the plastic power nuts that hold them in place in the metal casing were all broken off. I installed the new power nuts then plugged it back in and ran it. It cycled perfectly. luckily I had not opened the directional switch and I was able to return it to Partselect for a refund. In total I had to remove and reinstall 4 very short screws and 4 small bolts. While I had it out and apart I also cleaned out quite a bit of old trash that had escaped to unseen parts of the compactor. It is 26 years old and working fine. I don't think they make them like they used to. Thank You Partselect for a great experience

      Power nut sheared on one side
      I removed the compactor from under the cabinet and unpluged it from the power supply. The ram was in the down position and wedged to one side . The lower side was the broken power nut side. I first removed the good side nut retainer cover and turned it down to a level position before removing the defective power nut cover. Then I went on Google search, got lucky and found PS Parts select's web site. I was Greeted by a very pleasant and knowledgeable clerk named Lacey. I described the part I needed, and gave her the model, serial numbers. She found the part , told me the price, I ordered 2 new ones and they arrived at my home in 3 days as she said they would. Exact Fit. Screwed them on the two power rods, put the covers back on and re-installed under my cabinet, and SHIZZAM !! Back in business.

      Grinding sound when operating compactor
      Removed drawer first, then removed compactor from under kitchen cabinet. Removed top cover. Discovered that a small wash cloth was wound around one of the drive screws. I then removed plunger and put it back in position. Replaced top cover and turned on compactor. Plunger went to the top and made a grinding sound. I removed the cover to discover that when I put the plunger back in, I did not have the lever that trips a micro switch in proper position. I needed the replacement plastic gears that were ruined when compactor did not shut off. Relatively easy job if I had noticed the location of the shut off lever, and would have needed the parts.

      Masher would no longer break glass bottles, and would keep running making a bumping sound
      I removed the unit from under the counter. After removing all of the bits of old trash and making sure the chain and gears were not slipping or striped, I knew it was the power nuts on top of the ram. After all of these years they were worn out, almost smooth inside where the threads are. They were easy to locate on your website. I received them in 2 days (faster than expected) and in 10 minutes the unit was back together and working well. Today was the first bag to be taken out after the repair, it is much heavier than the previous ones, a sign that we are now packing much more trash in a single bag!

      Trash Compactor ram will not move while motor running, stripped power nuts
      Move the unit out of the cabinet, and take off the top cover.The two drive screws are easy to see. unscrew the two screws of one of the power nut covers and remove that cover. With pliers, unscrew the plastic power nut from that screw. Screw on the replacement power nut with the help of pliers and some heavy grease. install the bearing cap. Use the same procedure for replacing the plastic power nut on the other screw. To make sure the piston is level, place the cover on the power screw but do not attach it. Measure from the end of the screw to the top of the cover of the first screw, then adjust the second power nut up or down so the two power screw nut covers are the same distance down from the top of the it's power screw Lift up the piton assembly to close the gap, if any (I used a short piece of rope) , and install the screws on the second power bearing cap. After installation. recheck the distance from the top of the power screws to the power bearing caps is close to the same distance so the piston will be level.. This same procedure could be followed for other brands. Power of the appliance and verify functionality, if OK replace the top cover and push unit back into the cabinet..

      Compactor ram would not return to the top. The threaded bushings had broken off the wings that held them in place, causing them to spin.
      I held up on the compactor ram as i loosened the two screws on each of the two retaining cups. I then unscrewed the threaded bushings and lifted the ram out of the unit. I then cleaned the surface of the tracks on which the ram guides up and down and applied a thin layer of silicone grease to those surfaces as well as the threaded rods. . I placed the ram back into the unit and held it in place as i replaced the threaded bushings and their respective caps. Unfortunately i neglected to move the limiting switch that stops the ram when it reaches the top of the cycle and I broke the lever that contacts the ram and subsequently activates the stop switch. so i removed the ram and removed and inspected the switch. It was broken beyond repair so i ordered a new switch from the same place I purchased the threaded bushings and am waiting for them to arrive. Lesson learned, pay attention to the sequence by which the original parts are removed and understand how the system functions so that you can remember to put it back in the right order.

      Trash Compactor didn't work
      The plastic power nut had stripped out on my 12 year old trash compactor. Ordered 2 new ones from Partselect and installed them. Now it works like new again.

      a plastic bag got caught around the screw and the flange on the nut broke so it couldn,t raise one side so the door was jamed at an angle
      I pulled the unit out and tipped it over . I pulled the pan off the bottom then i could put a box end wrench on the screw that was jamed then tuned the screw to loosen the door . i then removed the plastic bag that was wrapped around the screw and put the new nut on and all fixed
