Ed4321 4/28/2020

first trash compactor. Works great as expected. Saves on trips to the trash bin. Bags are a little pricey and plastic - going to try some paper ones see how they work. Otherwise happy. It's right behind our food prep counter so it's easy to leave it slightly open and discard cuttings as we go.

Brand New Compactor - Does not work.

Amelia House 4/28/2020

Our compactor was installed in our new residence on April 15, 2020. We noted on the walk through of the residence that the Compactor was not operating. The motor activates, but the Ram does not descend. (We know how to use a compactor. This is our third residence with a Compactor). We called GE on April 16, 2020 and we were told the earliest a technician could be scheduled is May 6, 2020. We believe that to be an unacceptable delay for an inoperative $1500 appliance.

Bought all GE profile appliance. Microwave, refrigerator, compactor, wall oven, and gas cooktop....everything but the compactor has a matching handle so the compactor doesn't blend in as well.I also think a handle would help with fingerprints. I would also prefer push bottom operation

Keeps jamming

OldHoosier 3/27/2020

The problem is the foot operation. If your foot slips after starting the operation the compactor stops and there is nothing you can do to start it again, it should either not be so sensitive or there should be some type of reset easily accessible to the user. It may be a safety feature, but it's poorly designed and a nightmare for the homeowner.

Love compactors - BUT

Woodruff 1/14/2020

We have had a GE Compactor for years and loved it. We recently completed a kitchen remodel that included a new one. Unfortunately we had problems with the new one from day one. Took 7 visits by appliance warranty folks before GE would replace it even though there were obvious issues. New one is working. Have to say the new ones are a lot clunker sounding. Stainless hard to keep clean (old one before remodel had black front). But we like the convenience. Would recommend if you like having compactors & are use to their noise (they are not quiet).

I do not like this trash compactor I have trouble closing it. It doesn't have a deodorizer build in so it smells. It doesn't have a handle on the outside to open it. So you have hand prints \all over it. I was told this is the only one I could get. I should have gone with another brand

Not as good as the 20 yr old compactor it replaced

UseToBeAgeFan 1/1/2020

The product looks and basically works as advertised. However it lacks a couple of basic features. First, there should be an operational mode that allows the compactor to compress the contents and keep it compressed for an extended period of time so as to make the trash volume as small as possible. Second, the plastic bag liners shipped with the unit do not work well. Before the bag actually fills, it's sides get pulled into the compactor. There's nothing to stop this from happening. I have a kitchen full of GE appliances and wanted to keep it that way by purchasing this unit. But honestly, I'm disappointed with this unit so far.

This is my 3rd trash compactor. We moved about a year ago and the house didn't have a trash compactor. Once you have a compactor you can't live without one. This was my christmas present and I love. My husband installed it and it was easy. It is quiet, opens and closes easy. It is easy to use and looks nice.

Busyhouse 11/4/2019

Love the new compactor. We remodeled our kitchen and had compactor in place and loved it so to update we replaced with this model due to the stainless steel look and no handle/controls visible on the front so we didn't have to worry about it "matching" other appliances. A great update to our kitchen. With 4 kids we have a lot of waste in the kitchen so without the compactor we would be changing a regular garbage bag/can daily but with the compactor it's once a week on garbage day. This is an appliance that once you have you wouldn't want to go without, like a garbage disposal or dishwasher! Easy to install, easy to use. Win Win for us.

RLynnC 11/1/2019

This is my third GE compactor and my last. It has broken for the 4th time in just over a year! Every time they fix it I wait weeks for parts and than they did not have the right part. Every technician thinks the one prior did not get to the real cause. In the interim I have a compactor that does not work that I purchased just over a year ago. So far GE has not come to the rescue at all!

New compactor

Remodel gal 10/8/2019

We needed a stainless steel compactor to match our other stainless appliances. We wanted a handle but very hard to find. The lack of a handle results in fingerprints on the top of it as hands are used to close it. It is much noisier than our older compactor.

Needs a handle

palealien 9/19/2019

Chose this to match other GE appliances. Despite the lack of a handle giving it a clean look, unless you knee it closed it's gonna show handprints. A small bar at the top would have def been nice. Otherwise it works well, a tight fit and so far the provided brackets have not been successful, so I locked it down with shims in the meantime This will work OK, but here again, without a handle the tendency is to slam it shut, and I will have to attend to this problem soon. Crushes the contents just fine, easy bag removal, but I suspect most compactors are fairly the same mechanically. Hard to tell when no one local sells them, so for a blind purchase online it's worked out well so far. A word of caution: measure the opening carefully, I almost bought a similar model that would have been about 3/8" too big, "size DOES matter." :-)

Loose door

CAGrandma 6/25/2019

The door on this trash compactor is very flimsy. It has a lot of play both right and left and in turn has already nicked my new cabinets which is not good. Unless you absolutely push in straight in you're going to hit the cabinet. Not real thrilled with it. It does smash the food fine which is what we want it just doesn't seem to be as sturdy as our old one.

Poor functionality.

BillTric 6/23/2019

The compactor does not, in our opinion, compact trash the way we expected, even with a full compartment. Worse yet, is when you step on pedal to open the unit, the bin springs out only about 2-3." So, when your hands are full of trash, you must use one to further open the compactor enough to be able to insert the trash. The hands-free feature does not function properly. We were so disappointed, that we called the service department of the store at which we purchased the compactor. The service tech ordered new sliders and a spring. We will see if those changes help make the product more user friendly.

bad workmanship

Irina 47 5/16/2019

Our new GE-UCG1680LSS is not in the near by as solid and well manufactured as the one we had before remodeling our kitchen. We had to call for a teknician to help with the door oppening since it just oppened 2 inches. The solution, and the only one according to him, was to tip it forward so that the gravitation will help!. SO, INSTEAD OF A GOOD TECKNOLOGY AND MATIRIAL, WE HAVE TO RELY ON THE GRAVITATION!. And that said, it looks bad in line with the rest of the cabinets. If we would have known, we would have not invested 1000 dollars for a "garbadge bim".
