    my gcg1580loss would just hum and not start. i found the switch that reverses direction on the motor had burnt contactors. i cleaned the switch that is mounted on the motor and it works great now. i couldn't find a replacement switch otherwise i would have replaced it, i think it comes with a new motor.

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.

I would guess there is a limit switch that tells the machine to stop once the compactor has retracted.

Ge compactor stops after just starting


the running cycle for this type of trash compactor is a max of about 30secs. The fuller the bag is the shorter the cycle. However, if this is not how yours is running try checking to see if there is any trash stuck between the ram and the basket. Or make sure that the foot peddle is still staying in the "up" position.

GE profile trash compactor makes loud noise and pulsates


sounds like you have a bad ram bushing on unit... you will have to pull out and watch operation ...there is also a differential switch that tells unit when to stop that sometimes gets worn and needs replaced... it generally is at the top or on the side of bin ....most likely it is one of the two items that has failed...

I have a GE trash compactor I have to hold up the foot pedal for it to work. When I let it go the compactor stops. thank you


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.
