Motor runs but the shaft does not go up and down.
For model number UCG1520N0SS
PartSelect logo
Hi Tom, thank you for contacting us. Based on the description, the issue is probably with the drive gear and shaft kit, part number PS12743163. If the drive gear is worn out or not securely fastened to the drive shaft, the motor may continue running, but the ram will not move up or down. We would recommend replacing the drive gear and shaft kit to fix the issue. We hope this solves your problem!

Trash compactor would not shut off at end of cycle. Would have to manually turn it off.
Removed compactor from opening. Using screw driver unthreaded 4 screws from top and then removed the on/off dial. Face plate came off easy and provided access to relay switch bank. Unscrewed two screws which allowed both relay switches to be removed and replaced. Recommend replacing both relay switches. Reassembled and compactor worked fine. Very easy job. If your compactor is making a machine gun noise during the return cycle then this will solve your problem.

RAM was crooked. Power Nut was stripped.
Followed YouTube instructions. Was relatively easy to dismantle, though on this GE Profile model compactor, needed to partially undo the front panel to provide room to remove the RAM. Works great now!!
