Like others said, I think the old motor itself was good but I will never know. I could get it to work by working the chain to move the gear. The good news is the new motor made everything work. It is a little quieter. I kept the old gear instead of using the replacement that came with it. Two nuts are hard to get to because the gear and chain is in the way. I had to pull on the gear away from the motor to gain access. I expected my 3 year old GE compactor to last longer than it did. I don't recommend buying another one. The new motor has been working good for 1 week now. I can't believe how fast the delivery was. Only 2 days. 237 dollars.
