    When i turn the knob to start nothing happens. It used to work periodically but finally stopped working all together.

    Hello Richard, thank you for writing. This sounds like an issue with the Rotary Switch Kit, but sadly the replacement for your model is discontinued. You will need to reach out to GE directly for a substitution part number. Please feel free to get back in touch with us if they provide one. Thank you!

    When we turn it on it makes a loud noise like it’s trying to compact but there is no compaction. Please help!

    Unite is hard to open door. I didn’t see anything damage or broken. What could be the problem ?
    For model number GCG1540F0SS
    Hello Ernie, thank you for your question. If you have trouble opening or closing the drawer on your trash compactor, you may have a defective roller or rollers. If the rollers become damaged or lack lubrication the drawer may be difficult to move. To inspect, lift up on the drawer and remove from the opening. I hope this helps.

      trash compactor ram not moving - broken plastic drive gear
      1) pulled the compactor from under the counter and unplugged it. 2) tipped it on its side 3) removed 5 screws (3 on the motor side and two on the bottom) an took off the bottom cover plate. 3) using the pliers i pulled of the retainer clip from the large drive gear(it had broken on only the hub remain attached) 4) i then just slid in the new gear, snapped in the retainer clip and buttoned up the cover plate. Note I did not replace the other parts that came in the package because the existing ones seemed ok.
