SOURCE: Trash Compactor Removal

I noticed that my compactor attached to the countertop above it at the front, but that it is also possible to do the same at the back. Can you get access under the cabinet at the back of the compactor and check it out?

I also found that after 2 years my GE Profile Trash Compactor (purchased in June '07), the pedal was hanging down on the left side. I searched the internet and called GE to no avail.

After a few attempts, I finally solved the problem by removing the screw on the left side and adding a metal "L" bracket, with the bottom of the L flush against the back of the front panel. That way, when you depress the pedal, the screw can't pop out of the metal it's attached to.

Good luck!

There is a spring that holds up the pedal. It is broken or has come apart. By the pedal in the up position it is a safety switch allowing the compactor to run. You may have to repair this or simply put a small block under the pedal of the unit to run.
I hope my suggestions helps and all the luck to you.

Ge profile trash comapctor loud banging noice


You have something wrapped on the compactor screw assembly (The assembly is a threaded rod about 24 inches long and 3/4 inch in diameter. ). Most likely it is plastic bag or some other plastic. Pull the entire compactor out (remove the hold down screws first). Then look for the obstruction on the screw assembly, cut it off and try while not in the compactor hole to make sure it works.

at the top, above the ram, there are two switches. One is the reversing switch (should have 4 wires), the other is the stop switch (2 wires). I suspect that the switch arm is bent, due to what you just described, and fails to activate the switch to stop the motor when the ram is at the top position.

Kitchenaid compactor KUCS03FTSS makes banging sound at end of cycle


I bought a Kitchen Aid trash compactor the end of Sept/2008. By July/2010 I have spent $528 on having it fixed! It only cost $623 new so I called Whirlpool customer satisfaction line where after waiting 15 minutes was told that "With all due respsect mam, Whirlpool owes you nothing" Then " as a courtesy" they offered me 50% off an $80 part that I still need to pay $60 in labor to install! So,that would be an additional $100 on an appliance that has been trouble from the get go...I have had numerous compactors before this brand and have never had any trouble...Do NOT buy anything made by Whirlpool as they have apparently, a NO customer satisfaction policy.

Trash Compactor Problem


Had a similar problem with mine. I took it apart and found that the nut that is on the bottom end of the ram screw was loose. I tightened it and it fixed the problem. That was about a month ago. Now it is doing it again. I'm going to tighten it again this weekend and apply Loc-tite to the threads.

To get to the nut, you have to lay the compactor on its side and remove the plate from the bottom. You'll see a chain that goes around the motor sprocket and both ram screws. You need to tighten the nuts on the ram screws.

Hope this helps.
