Professional delivery and installation is available for every product we sell. We would be happy to coordinate delivery and installation for you.

Extended warranties are usually very inexpensive and can save you thousands in the future. Some can even cover extra costs that result, such as cost of food that spoils when your fridge dies. It's simple and inexpensive to purchase extended warranties and one of the smartest ways to protect your investment.

Appliances can be large, heavy and expensive. You probably don't have the special tools or expertise needed to fix them in a crisis. If you can spare a few thousand dollars without batting an eyelash for new appliances should they break tomorrow, don't buy a warranty. But if you're like most of us, protect yourself by purchasing inexpensive extended warranties when you buy a new product and save yourself big money in the long run.

Great replacement!

Mswagss 4/14/2022

It does exactly what we wanted it to do! Our previous one had an "extra pack" option to hold the trash down if we chose to do so.

Packed but not

Roberta L 12/13/2021

Nice compactor. However, I would have given 5 stars if there was a way to pack down the trash, keep it packed down for a few minutes, then release it. The trash goes down but it does' t pack tight.

Series of Frustrations

kva15 11/30/2021

This is the 2nd GE trash compactor we have had in the last 3-1/2 months. The first unit failed (the Ram stuck) after 2 months. We dealt with customer service, including multiple service calls and service call cancellations, but GE Appliances eventually provided a replacement unit. That unit has now failed after 2 weeks (foot pedal failure, the door won't open). I would like to be able to give this trash compactor a good rating, but I just can't.

Like this compact a lot. I would like it even better if it had a continuous compact feature like my other compactors in our past.

Works like expected but could be better

LarryC56 11/22/2021

The new one replaced our twenty-year-old non-GE that was having problems. One feature I miss that our previous compactor had, was a push button that would keep the ram down to constantly compact until another button was pressed and the ram would come back up to allow for the drawer to open. The GE goes down by lifting the foot switch but immediately comes back up so the trash does not stay compacted. I gave it a 3-star rating because of this, otherwise I would give it 5 stars.

Missing 1 thing on it

Sklec 10/31/2021

We love the compactor & truly missed not having one in our new house. However the one we chose does not have the extra pack feature. Other than that it's a good appliance. It's a keeper

Looks great!

L Knox 10/7/2021

So happy to have a new compactor. Trying to get used to it not having a handle, and the buttons to attach the bag to are great, but a little difficult to attach. Overall happy with it.

Works good, a little sensitive to the touch, meaning it will start if you brush it with your foot!

Sleek styling but very noisy

FdL Steve 3/4/2021

Our old GE compactor lasted for over 20 years and served us well. Our new compactor has great style and features, but is very noisy when the compacting cycle is activated.
