Question about GE Profile GCG1700LII 15" Built-In Trash Compactor with 1.4 Cu. Ft. Capacity, Fully Integrated Door ...
I have a problem with my GE trash compacter the motor hums when turned on but does not start. I had a repair man come in to service it and he said the motor would have to be replace at a cost of $500. This unit was installed less than a year ago however because it was purchased before that the warranty is expired. I am very dismayed that the product is that poorly made and the support is as bad. After buying 5 of the GE Monogram products I will never buy GE again. Can the motor be repaired or do I have to replace?
The usual "repair" of appliance motors is replacement. If you browse this site, you will find numerous other cases similar to yours where an expensive appliance has failed early.

Well, i have to jump right in here and agree with you. I have been working on appliances since 1971 and GE is the most frustrating, highest priced replacement parts ( for the most part ) of all brands. Of all the brands, Whirlpool and Maytag have been the longest lasting, best priced and easiest to work on. I truly feel sorry for you....really.

Open the top hook. leave it open overnight.
Check in the morning if the temperatures comes back to normal. It works for me!

There is a motor jam. The mechanism needs to be cleared, perhaps a bone or any other hard material is jamming the mechanism. Do a visual inspection and look for foreign objects (Perhaps a fork?) or something unusual.
