Product Reviews
Rated 2.3 out of 5 by 3 reviewers.
Rated 2 out of 5 by Design Defect of GE Trash Compactor(GCG) This Compactor has a major drawback or design defect: Once the ram or door was jammed,service person could not open the door to repair the compactor. It requires the compactor owner to cut the mounting screws with a handsaw and remove the compactor from the cabinet, such that a repair could be done on the compactor. 6/1/07
Rated 4 out of 5 by good product - excellent service from AJ Madison We're long-time compactor users and are mostly happy with GE's newest version, so far. The replacement of the trash bags is not as easy as in previous models, but works well enough. 9/26/08
Rated 1 out of 5 by GE PROFILE TRASH COMPACTOR The motor went out under warranty. It went out a second time 1-week after the GE warranty expired. This motor has dead spots that prevent it from starting all the time. Compactors with this motor are junk and a waste of money. 7/31/09
