Question about GE Profile GCG1580LSS 15" Built-In Trash Compactor with 1.4 cu. ft. Capacity, Hidden Controls & Remo...
Thanks, I had already taken the compactor apart before I read your response, and found pretty much what you guessed.
When I took the compactor apart, I found I could not budge the ram, but that I could spin the motor rotor (?) by hand. I spun it down a little, then put things back together, and the compactor operated correctly...for about three compaction cycles. After that, the motor just buzzed again, and the ram again refused to move. My sense is that your idea about the top sensor is correct, and the ram cycles too far up, gets 'stuck'somewhere past the sensor, and the ram can't engage to spin down to compact the garbage. My problem is that I couldn't identify the sensor when I had it apart, and don't know how to proceed now. Have any further suggestions?
Here is an assembly drawing of your compactor.. Please note item # 102 ( direction switch) ..That may be affecting the perfomance of your motor or your motor may have a dead spot on the windings.. Here is a link to a website for parts that coincide with this drawing.. There isn't an awful lot to a compactor in terms of hardware so good luck.. Hope this helps..
