Do you push pedal to close? Or do you push on the SS?

Asked by: Bob
You take your fingers and put your fingerprints all over the door to shut it. You could use your hip and shut it. In time, there will be damage. Be careful, that door is so flimsy. It's going back to the store. It's junk.

Is there another way to open the trash compactor or can it only be opened with the foot pedal?

Asked by: SW
Hi SW - Since there is no handle, the drawer is opened using the foot pedal. Keep in touch! Sue

15 in. Built-In Trash Compactor in Stainless Steel is rated 3.7 out of 5 by 69.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from This trash compactor lasted 8 months until the wheel track imploded and the door could no longer ... This trash compactor lasted 8 months until the wheel track imploded and the door could no longer be closed. GE's warranty service is horrible. First, the website doesn't work - the form requests specific details (such as serial number, purchase date) - but then provides no result after you input them. Eventually, everything must be handled over the phone. Second, GE didn't have the parts necessary to fix the unit and they refuse to replace it. GE's opinion is that eventually they'll get the parts back in stock or they'll discontinue the product. At that point, they'll make a decision as to whether to fix or repair the unit. I'm already over a month into having a non-working trash compactor - so the warranty is worthless unless you want to file a small claims case and then presumably GE will honor it. Otherwise, they're not interested. It seems like it would make more sense to just replace the unit. I don't know, I'm not a heavy user of product warranties - perhaps denying warranty coverage is the secret to GE's success. Anyway, I'll be moving onto another non-GE trash compactor and wouldn't recommend this one.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Poor functionality. The compactor does not, in our opinion, compact trash the way we expected, even with a full compartment. Worse yet, is when you step on pedal to open the unit, the bin springs out only about 2-3." So, when your hands are full of trash, you must use one to further open the compactor enough to be able to insert the trash. The hands-free feature does not function properly. We were so disappointed, that we called the service department of the store at which we purchased the compactor. The service tech ordered new sliders and a spring. We will see if those changes help make the product more user friendly.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Loose door The door on this trash compactor is very flimsy. It has a lot of play both right and left and in turn has already nicked my new cabinets which is not good. Unless you absolutely push in straight in you're going to hit the cabinet. Not real thrilled with it. It does smash the food fine which is what we want it just doesn't seem to be as sturdy as our old one.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Crushes it! This unit replaced an old compactor that came with the house. Wow! What a difference. It is sleek in design - quiet and quick.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from I bought this trash compactor for our new house. I've had a GE Profile for years in my current ho... I bought this trash compactor for our new house. I've had a GE Profile for years in my current home, and had no reservations about how a trash compactor worked or buying 'GE'. Well, what I thought was wrong! This is JUNK. I had the trash compactor installed and I went to check it out. The door is incredibly flimsy. You step on the pedal and it only opened about four inches...and it's empty. I looked for some way to pull it out further and there's nothing, so your hands will be leaving finger prints on it right out of the gate. I had to push on the stainless panel with no handle and more prints...and my hands were not gunky. I opened it again...same thing. I looked all over for how to get the compactor to crush, to test it...and guess what? There's no pedal to operate it. No switch to turn or flip. Nothing. It's supposed to automatically compact when it wants to compact. This is garbage. I don't want the machine to automatically do anything without my approval. It's going back....ASAP. The store did not have a trash compactor on display to preview. I didn't "think" that a start or stop button would be an issue. ALL APPLIANCES HAVE OFF AND ON BUTTONS...BUT NOT THIS ONE. I'm buying a Whirlpool. My sis just installed one a few months ago...and it's more like what I want. IF the store doesn't have a trash compactor on display, how do you expect to sell them? Just us "old folks"? It's ridiculous business. Put them on display and they will sell....if it's good.

This one looks good but leaves much to be desired in performance. The compaction level is disappointing. For the money, I would not purchase again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love the Foot Pedal This product is really nice since it's counter height and you don't have to bend over to put stuff in it. Also the foot pedal is very cool - down to open, up to start the compactor.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Quiet, large capacity This is my second GE Profile Compactor. I do not know how I lived without one! It reduces my trash load allowing me a smaller waste pick-up can.
