Our Garbage compactor doesn't spring out as far as it use to, only about 4 inches. I thought maybe putting on a new spring would help. Do you think this would work and do you carry this part? Charlotte Antaki
For model number GCG1540F1SS

Hello Charlotte, thank you for contacting us. We would recommend checking the chain drive, part number PS257884. According to our research, it is the most probable culprit. When the chain is damaged, it can get stuck and will not allow the compactor to move or reach its upper limit. Customer service is available 7 days a week if you require assistance placing an order. Thanks again for reaching out!

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.

locking nut was stripped
After calling a repair man and being told my appliance was to old for him to repair I discovered your website. I simply entered the model number and a picture of the part I was looking for was easily found. I ordered online and received the replacement parts 5 day's later. I simply swapped out the old locking nuts with the new ones from your website and the repair was complete. What could have been an easy $100 repair cost a fraction of that and the trash compactor is working just fine.
