Ab Fab Trash Compactor!

LMD, ABT Electronics
18 November 2014
  • Excerpt: I replaced a 12 year old model of this same trash compactor. The screw that held the foot pedal on wore through the metal hole. It got a lot of use, so no big surprise. Although I was used to it, I never liked the foot pedal, and you had to apply some pressure to depress it, so it was no wonder it...
  • Pros: Clean, Does Not Jam Up, Easy Controls

"Profile" should stand for piece of junk

  • Summary: Trash compactor is VERY noisy. The motor gets stuck and I have to pull the unit out of the cabinet, unplug, and then reset. This is the second time that I have had to take the unit apart (yes apart) and try to get it to work. This time no luck. I believe the motor has probably burnt out!! Great!!

GE Profile Trash Compactor

WLB in St.Aug., reviews.lowes.com
7 October 2011
  • Summary: I have to agree wholeheartedly with the first review, Steve in setauket, our compactor lasted less than 24 months and GE Service wants 512.00 to repair the item. My wife hated the compactor from the start and rarely used the thing, since the kitchen remodel was mainly for the cook, me, that wasn't...
  • Pros: compacted great, when it worked
  • Cons: Low quality, Not durable, a very short, lifespan, considering the, original price!

over $1000 and it lasted 14 months

  • Summary: Think buying GE PROFILE and you are getting an appliance that will last??? Think again. This compactor lasted about 13 or 14 months, so it cost me about $100/mopnth to compact my garbage. The compact mechanism is stuck in the half way position and the machine is now useless.

Poor parts.

Will, reviews.lowes.com
2 July 2011
  • Summary: The main drive gear broke after 14 months of use. It was replaced (out of warranty) and the replacement broke 11 months later. I expected more from a GE appliance and paid too much for a "quality" appliance with cheap plastic parts.
  • Pros: attractive
  • Cons: Not durable

Don't waste your money!

  • Summary: After using for about two months, the handle discolored and now looks copper instead of stainless steel. After 13 months of use, it stopped working. I'm thinking it's the motor but I don't want to pay $500 for a replacement motor. I don't want to pay for a technician to look at it either.
  • Cons: Low quality, Not durable
