Questions & Answers


Are the wheels removable and if so how would that change the dimensions?

Asked by colgate February 25, 2021

Hey colgate, thanks for reaching out to us for assistance. The wheels aren't removable, but if you're looking to change the height of your trash compactor, you can do so using the leveling legs on the bottom of the unit. We hope this is helpful information! - Guy@GEA

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.

Great style blends well in kitchen.
Sleek lines, no knobs outside, love it easy to use control Inside & step on floor control to open, lift with foot to compact. Great features!!!

Buyer beware
After about 6 months I noticed some sluggishness when opening the unit to place refuse inside. Today I took the fiberboard side covers off & found both the plastic ram stoppers were destroyed. As expensive as this unit is I expected far better quality from GE then what I've found. I have several other GE appliances that have seved me well for a number of years, but his compactore is a big disappointment.

Durable Compactor and Easy to Install
We finally replaced our 14 year old trash compactor and what a difference. This GE compactor is heavy duty, very simple to use and very easy to install.
by Markzues
Terrible product!
We have owned this compactor for about a year and for not reason the door will suddenly get stuck open a couple of inches when trying to open the compactor. When it happens the door will not move. It has now happened five times!!! The repair person says that it is happening because I am trying to open the door when it is running or I am tapping the pedal up as I am trying to open it. I can guarantee you I am not doing either one of those things. I have used compactors for years and have never had this problem before. There is something wrong with my machine but GE denies it and will not do anything about it! It is super frustrating to have this issue with a brand new and expensive appliance and no support from GE. THEY REALLY DO NOT CARE ABOUT THEIR CUSTOMERS.

Easy to use and install!
This was just delivered! Sleek looking! Worth the wait! All we did was lower the back wheels, plug in and it was done! Love the bag lifter as well!
