SOURCE: 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.

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?

SOURCE: GE Profile trash compactor is stuck

This has happened a couple times to me and the fix is fairly simple. The problem is the trash ram is pushing down on the edge of the metal of the trash compartment because the door is partially open. The solution is to back-up the ram the the door will close.

To back-up the ram, you will need to pull the compactor out from under your cabinets and unplug it. Turn the compactor on it's side to expose the bottom. There is a plate on the bottom that covers the motor gears. Remove the plate and turn the large gear counter-clockwise to back-up the ram screws (at least this is how it works on my model works). The gears are a little greasy so you may need to add some after messing with the gears.

Good luck.

SOURCE: I have a GE trash compactor I have to hold up the

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.

Compactor ram stuck partially down & door open 2 inches. How do I get the ram to go back up & get the door closed?


We just had this same problem. Your problem is most likely abroken plastic gear found at underneeath the bottom of the compactor. Pull out the compactor and turn it upside down. Remove the bottom panel and that is where we found the broken gear. We were able to retract the ram and open the drawer by manually turning the drive chain using an ajustable wrench. Clockwise is compact, counter clockwise is retract.

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.

Jenn-aire compacter can't close


Hi marigf5,

I'm Harvey the Master Plumber.

Your problem is: you cannot get your compacter to close.

First, don't force it. Chances are something has fallen behind the drawer and is in the way. Just remove the drawer and clear it. If something is broken, you still have to remove the drawer to see and repair it. If you run into trouble you might consider utilizing the Repair Directory to find a repairman.

Feel free contact me again!
