Excerpt: I do not like the swing door at all. My old one pulled out and you dropped your trash in, this one you have to open and then pull out the drawer. My husbands hates it compared to the old one we had. Do not like the places you push to get it to compact. You can not hardly see them. Just not a good design.
Excerpt: completely remolded my kitchen and this is the compactor i selected and it is awful compared to my old one. the side door does not work with the rest of the cabinets it does not compact well and i am just finding out i must have to order your bags because none of the over the counter i bought for my previous compactor will work. i wish i could send it right back to you!!!
Excerpt: I purchased a new Electrolux Compactor in January of this year. About a month ago it stopped working. The repairman contacted Electrolux and decided on parts replacement. The replacement parts were installed and it still did not work. Other parts were ordered to no avail. I am completely discusted with this machine and will never purchase another Electrolux product.
Excerpt: I purchased all new electrolux appliances expecting top of the line equipment for the price I paid. The trash compactor broke within the first 3 months. It had to be uninstalled and taken back to the shop for repair. It still will not compact a tissue box it is nothing more than an expensive garbage can. The refrigerator makes all kinds of noise and does not make enough ice for more than 3 glasses of drink.
Excerpt: The compactor is very stylish looking but performance is lacking and not user friendly. The Door swings open rather than slides out which is an issue with the surrounding cabinetry. It is difficult to determine if the load is in compact mode consequently trash can be disposed 'on top of" the compacting element. The special bags are expensive.
