GE Profile The Innovation Rebate

Offer Expires: 7/1/2020 to 12/31/2020 Must be postmarked by: 1/31/2021

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.

Diddy Girl 10/12/2020

The compactor is everything I hoped it would be, it can hardly be heard when it is running, I love that it has no handle to get in the way and the hands-free toe pedal control to open and to start it. It does a great job of smashing the garbage .

Not the quality I expected

fogmaster 9/23/2020

I bought this compactor to replace one that came with my home built 21 years ago. I have a trusted appliance dealer just about to go out of business and he could only get this one. I figured they all looked the same so why not. From the day I put it into the encloser I could feel the difference between it and the 21 year old appliance it was replacing. The slider was not as smooth and wasn't as quiet. I ran into some issues closing it early on and today the door was completely stuck after only 3 months of use.

Mark76051 9/4/2020

This compactor looks great in pictures but feels cheap and performs about the same...the flimsy construction and rough feeling tracks for the compartment make this product less than desirable...we are actually trying to return this model to the store and get a better quality product.

Sleek and easy to install

TLC5 8/26/2020

Just got it and so far so good. Only thing is when one pressed to open, the drawer doesn't open sufficiently. Since there's no handle on this model, one must touch to pull open the drawer. Maybe with more use or a little WD40 it will pop open more widely.

A Handle Would Be Better

Bonnietree 8/26/2020

The compactor works beautifully. My only complaint is that it doesn't have a handle, so that if I forget and touch the top of the stainless steel, I leave a mark, which I then have to clean off.

Sleek Lines, Hidden Knobs, Easy Install

Terri2C 8/6/2020

I haven't had the product for a week yet but I love the sleek lines, the hidden power button and the fact that I was able to install it by myself. The Lowe's delivery guys were outstanding and opened the wrapping on their truck and then delivered the trash compactor within inches of its final destination. They were punctual, courteous, cautious and wore their masks. Thank you Lowe's. I will be buying the rest of my much needed GE appliances from you!

Disappointing

Less than expected 8/5/2020

This is not a very good quality appliance. The drawer does not glide well. It really needs a good shove to insure its closed. There is no "extra pack" feature and even the regular pack is not as effective as previous compactors I have owned. I tried to save a few hundred dollars and wish I hadn't.

Reduce trash with a compactor.

Steve KC 7/29/2020

We moved into a new house for us in November. Many items were better than our original house, but what we missed most vs. old house was our trash compactor. We didn't like taking out trash everyday, so we added our new GE compactor.

This compactor is easy to use and does a good job of compacting. My only issue with it is that when it starts to get full you can't put larger things in it, even though there is room for more compacting.

sljs47 5/15/2020

After about 6 months I noticed some sluggishness when opening the unit to place refuse inside. Today I took the fiberboard side covers off & found both the plastic ram stoppers were destroyed. As expensive as this unit is I expected far better quality from GE then what I've found. I have several other GE appliances that have seved me well for a number of years, but his compactore is a big disappointment.

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.

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.
