Customer Questions & Answers

does this open like a door or does it pull out

Asked by: Anonymous
When you mount this one in your cabinet, it will be flush with the wood of the cabinetry. Since it is mounted flush with your cabinet, there is no room for a hinged swinging door. It opens by stepping on a pedal at the bottom of the drawer and the drawer then slides outward. it is activated by lifting the pedal with the toe of your shoe.

Do you have any 12" wide trash compators?

We have a GE trash compactor that is 12" wide, 20" deep, and 33 3/8" tall. It is over 20 years old and now needs to be replaced. It is a built-in and the space available will only accommodate a 12" wide compactor. Do you still sell compactors with these dimensions? The space available would accommodate one that is up to 24" deep.
Asked by: Barb
Hi Barb-this is Sue from GE Appliances. While we certainly appreciate your loyalty, we no longer manufacture 12" wide compactors. Our current compactor is 15" wide: GCG1580RSS (stainless), GCG1500RWW (white), GCG1500RBB (black). Thanks for checking with us!

Customer Reviews

15 in. Built-In Trash Compactor in Stainless Steel is rated 3.5 out of 5 by 118.
Rated 2 out of 5 by from Noisy For the price paid ,it seems cheaply made. It sounds very tinny and foot pedal seems fragle. My other lasted 30 years and was solid.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not so happy! I bought it back in Nov. 2016. Not so happy with it. It looks really nice and works OK but it broke down on me twice in the first 3 months, now I lost my confidence in it and I'm just waiting for it to break down again. Very basic, has no charcoal filter or separate door for little trash pieces but I knew that when I bought it. To expensive for what you get.

I had the old version of this product for 10+ years until it finally broke... This was an unfortunate purchase and for the money - I would definitely head in a different direction. Both the quality and the construction of this unit - for the price - are nothing more than a complete disappointment. It is a real shame since the old version of this product was the best on the market.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from GE Trash Compactor This compactor is the same as our old one, but we are not as pleased with it. It does not role out smoothly, and it is also louder as a new product than our last one. We also never needed to anchor the last one down to cause it to stop sliding when opening and closing the door, but this one continues to push back under our cabinet which we need to adjust constantly.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Toe kick defective I've had this compactor 2 1/2 years and I've had to reattach the toe kick once a month. With normal use the screws work their way out and the toe kick falls off. This unit replaced the previous GE compactor that was 15 years old. I never had this problem with that unit.

All without problems. This one broken the power nut or trunnioun stripped out after only 11/2 years. Cost $264.00. Called GE, customer service was terrible and rude. Piece of garbage literally.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Quiet & Efficient I got this product about a month ago and I just love it. The trash compactor we had previously was old and very loud and did not really compact very well. This one is great and I recommend it to anyone looking to replace their old compactor.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wonderful product This replaces a GE compactor that was purchased in 1993. It still worked after all those years, but black was replaced with stainless when I remodeled. It works beautifully and I particularly love the foot control.
