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.

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.

The "wheel" has a cracked center that you can not see unless you take the whole gear off.( I am assuming the "wheel" is off the motor and should be driving the chain that goes to the side gears ) There is a tension washer looking thing that holds it on and you can force it off with a flat screwdriver. Once off, I'm sure you'll see the center of the gear( hex shaped) is not engaging the hex gear shaft for being broken somewhere. An appliance repair store should have that part for less than $50. Sure beats the $85 the service people start with for just a service call.
