    trash door is hard to open

  • didipolonski Feb 04, 2009

    The fdoor foot switch mechanism is cheap and unreliable. This trash compactor is only 2 years old and is already falling apart and is inoperable.
    The pedal/foot switch is held in place by two sheet metal screws that hold the pedal in place, thru the sheet metal side rail. One hole has worn out and the other side is egged out.

    Is there an upgrade to this system? This pedal activated switch system is not very good. It is cheap and difficult to use.

    My old Kitchen Aid trash compactor lasted over 20 years. It seemed sturdier and it was almost identical to this trash compactor ( minus the stainless steel). It also had a really nice feature for maximum compaction, which this one does not have.


    Please advise

The tracks that the door are on have to be cleaned and lubricated with WD40 or equivalent. This should solve your problem. Hope this helps

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 sheet metal side rail it's attached to.

Good luck!

Same problem here. My unit is also two years old and is very difficult to open, my wife and kids can no longer activate the foot pedal. The tracks are clean and lubricated, the issue is the actual foot pedal. I've tried tightening the screws, which were loose, but that hasn't helped. Has anyone resolved this issue?

How do i change nozzel on oil burner


Turn power off and isolate the fuel line/lines. Disconnect flare fitting on fuel line to the burner assembly. Open burner assembly...either the primary controller or ignition transformer should hinge open with a few screws on the other side. Should be a locking nut on the fuel line to the burner and electrodes...loosen and pull burner/nozzle/electrodes. I Don't recommend removing the electrodes if you don't know how to space them correctly, so unless you have a nozzle removal socket/ratchet, then use a deep well socket & back it up with a large pair of channel locks. Thread pattern is normal...LLRT. When replacing nozzle, Make sure you have the same gallon rated, spray pattern (hollow, semi, solid etc) , & degree (angle).
