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 finally broke. This new model allows you to pull the drawer open with the handle, or use the foot pedal. It is so much easier! The drawer pulls open very easily and slides in and out effortlessly. And, it really looks sharp. My old one looked very dated, so the new one has given my kitchen a little face-lift!

Had a Kitchen-Aid in hte house when we bought it. guessing it was 20 yrs old. Finally it wore out & we replaced with a GE Profile in stainless steel. Almost 13 months to the day, it growled really loud & smoked. Unplugged it & called hte store. The warranty is a year. Repairs are on me. If I pay nearly [$] for an appliance, it should last for years. When it was working it had a LOT less power than the Kitchen-Aid. This thing wont crush plastic milk jugs for crying out loud! Basically I bought a [$] stainless steel trash drawer.

Big mistake when I purchased Profile for my new home. Moved into home Oct. 2013 & am on my 2nd yes 2nd unit (replaced by GE). Replacement unit has same problem as original - starting 5 or 6 days after install. The ram keeps rubbing on side of drawer.

This is the compactor my builder installed in our new house. It doesn't have the sling that makes it easier to pull out the bag. Already one of the interior cardboard sides has fallen out. It doesn't have a compact-and-hold feature. I do like the foot activation.
Nothing for my husband to break
from Coalville, UT, United States
I like the fairly quiet operation, and after about four months, no mechanical issues at all. The control is all done by the foot pedal, a good thing because my husband has a tendency to destroy things. There are no knobs to turn, or buttons to push, just lift your foot.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
GE Profile Series Compactor - GCG1580RSS
from California, United States
Looks great and functions well, but opening and closing the door feels real cheap, the wheels seem to be warped, the door travels likes its riding over marbles, so far three technician visits and all wheels replaced, nothing has changed

Not much to say about a trash compactor is there ? It looks nice and compacts like every other one I've ever had, and as noisy as every one I have ever had.

It arrived as promised and in perfect condition.
Pretty and functions well
from El Dorado Hills, CA, United States
I just updated from a 14-year old GE compactor this week as part of a kitchen remodel. The new one is stainless steel and looks nicer. Unfortunately, I liked the height of the older one better. This one is taller, so it's harder to reach over it to put items in. The foot pedal is higher off the floor, which is less convenient than the old one. But you don't touch it with your hand to turn it on; you lift the foot pedal with your toe. That's cleaner when cooking. All the GE appliances we replaced lasted without problems for those 14 years. I hope these new ones do, too!
This compactor is finally Ok
from Little Rock, AR, United States
I've owned 4 compactors. This was the most expensive and isn't any better than the others. It broke after only a few weeks but was covered by warranty and fixed within a week. This one is quiet and looks good. I've used this for 2 months.
