        Q:Does this come with the cabinet panel? Or can it go with any cabinet door/ faceplate

        Answer This Question

        A:  Hey there - thanks for reaching out. This model does not come with the cabinet panel. It does come with a template and installation hardware for you to mount it to your desired matching cabinet front. To see exact panel size requirements, check out page 3 of the Installation Instructions: https://images.thdstatic.com/catalog/pdfImages/22/22dfd5e1-40e8-4421-aee3-48fd9337f8c7.pdf -- We hope this is insightful and don’t hesitate to reach out if you have additional questions. Have a great day! Lauren@GEA

          Best Trash Compactor
          Just installed myself after modifying my kitchen island to accommodate the trash compactor. This is one of the best kitchen appliances ever! Love the look and functionality. Every kitchen should have one.

            Sleek looking
            Had our GE Compactor a month and so far so good. The one thing that is different from our previous one is the noise level which is louder then our previous compactor.
              • Recommended
              Great looking and so much quieter!
              Great compactor so far!! Replaced my Whirlpool compactor with this one- GE is quieter, fit perfect and more sleek looking without controls showing.

                Looks great.
                Easy install and it looks great. This unit replaced a 45 year old GE compactor, I hope this one last just as long.
                  Foot Pedal Fails!
                  The Great thing about this Compactor is the foot Pedal. The Weak point of this Compactor is the Foot Pedal. The design is Flawed. The Pedal pivots on s Small Screw Shoulder which wears out both the screw and the hole in about 1 Year. Just after Warranty. You must buy the Pedal to get the Screw and buy the Bin to get a new Hole.

A member of our team will be reaching out to you via email to gather additional information. Please respond at your earliest convenience. With kind regards. - Tierra@GEAppliances
                    GE Trash Compactor - Poor design
                    Avoid this product. At a cost of $1,000, this trash compactor lasted just three months after the one year warranty expired. To open the drawer and operate the compactor, you are dependent entirely on a plastic pedal with flimsy plastic hinges. The left hinge failed, making it very difficult to open the drawer to even use it as a trash can. Our previous Whirlpool compactor lasted 30 years. The times they are a changin'!
                    Response from GE AnswersSep 19, 2023
                    We're sorry to hear that your trash compactor is giving you trouble. For a better experience, make sure to lift up on the foot pedal and then release to allow the ram to complete a cycle. Your comments about the quality are greatly appreciated as we are always looking for ways to make things better. Let us know if we can help in the future. All the best.- Kianna@GEAppliances GE_Appliances
                      Buyer Beware!!
                      Save your money unless you want to buy another one in a year. Metal bracket that holds the toe kick broke after a little over 1 year, conveniently just after the warranty expired. It is clearly a manufacturing defect. Now I have an expensive useless trash can.

                        Simply beautiful and efficient.
                        Easy install and compacts much tighter than our old one. Beautiful and hands free is a bonus.
                          EVERY home should have this!!
                          Bought the GE Compactor and we are IN LOVE with it! Just sorry we didn't invest in one years ago. WAY TO GO GE ON A GREAT PRODUCT!!!
