Problem with Release Petal
Almost since we pitched the GE trash compactor we have had issues with the foot petal release mechanism. I my opinion it is a poor design although I am no engineer. The actual compactor works great.

    Doesn’t have the extra pack feature that my other unit had. Had I known that, I wouldn’t have purchased it. I had to rig up a foot pedal control in order to stop crushing mechanism when it bottoms out. Unit will only run when stepping on peddle.

        Got this unit to replace a 12" Kitchen Aid compactor that died after almost 20 years. Since no one makes 12" compactors, got this unit. I had to move some drawers to make a space for this, then rebuild new drawers in the old 12" space. Compactor is great and is very quiet. Glad I purchased this model. I was able to put a custom cabinet door on the front and it looks great.

          This is the worst appliance I have purchased in my 63 years. As you can read my first review posted in October of 2017, I was unhappy with the way this compactor doesn't function. Twice now, my husband stepped on the switch to open the compactor and inadvertently lifted his foot which started the ram to move and jam. We had to take out the compactor, take off the bottom (see picture which we took today to remember how to replace it this time), manually raise the ram, and reinstall it. What a design flaw! So we have now installed this compactor three times. If this happens again, I will cut my losses and take it to the dump. Since I can't give this zero stars, I will give it one star but know that it does not deserve any stars.

            Trash compactor
            This replaced a 30 year old machine It is quieter. It looks great and seems to work well. My only complaint is this one lacks a caddy or sling for lifting the full bag out, on trash days.
