Foot switch gets bumped and jams.
1 Star Review   By DynamicD on Home Depot - Apr 24, 2013   

As other reviewer mentioned the foot switch is not a good idea. It gets bumped too easily and jams. I can't even open it and have smelly trash in there. I am sure it will cost a lot to fix it if it is fixable. This is the 2nd time and the first year we own it. Bad design, but nice to look at.

Unless thats real gold showing thru, its a Trash Can.
1 Star Review   By noone on Home Depot - Feb 11, 2013   

The first time I cleaned the handle the coating came off. I removed the rest with some 000 steel wool and revealed a beautiful very shiny gold handle in just a few minutes. Wish I could match the other Profile Appliances with the same. The gold on this model is stylish and beautiful, The compactor broke after a month. Its a beautiful Trash Can.

GE...Take this OFF the Market
1 Star Review   By GEcritic on Home Depot - Dec 19, 2012   

Broken Motor after 2 years and tarnished handle. Use now as a very expensive garbage can. Purchased a GE dishwasher at the same time that had a meltdown and would have caused a fire if we hadn't been home. GE what is the deal?

This product was a big disappointment for the $ I payed.
1 Star Review   By Catlover on Home Depot - Sep 7, 2012   

I purchased this particular trash compactor 4 years ago after having a trouble free Whirlpool for 10 years. Shortly after purchase, the foot pedal broke and the Stainless steel handle tarnished and turned into an ugly shade of copper. After 3 recent service calls, it was declared "legally dead" last week due to the fact the compressor motor totally gave out! What a disappointment!

GE Customer service
5 Star Review   By Disapointed on Home Depot - Mar 24, 2012   

Although I had a problem as previously noted the GE Customer Service was outstanding, not only did they seek out my issues they realized I had problem and replaced both the handle and the motor at no charge which was very credible in my opinion, Thank you GE I will continue to recommend your products

GE 1508 Trash Compactor disappointing at best
1 Star Review   By Disapointed on Home Depot - Feb 11, 2012   

I purchased this GE profile trash compactor and I must say it was the most disappointing purchase i have made in a long time, The handle is actually copper with a stainless look that wore off in 3 years and then the switch on the motor burnt out only to cost 400 to replace at about the same time. I thought I paid for quality but got only cosmetic appeal. Do not buy this item it is truly overpriced!!!

Worked great for a few years
3 Star Review   By TrashCrusher on Home Depot - Jan 27, 2012   

I had it for about 5-6 years then it fell apart. First a switch broke and then a motor got a dead spot. GE service installed the new switch but unit was working only sporadically with the dead spot. I chose not to set up a third visit and replace the motor at $400+ so we both called it quits and they credited me for the service visit. I may get another one because it looks great and matches my other GE stuff, but something more reliable would be better. I'm not thrilled that it lasted only 5-6 years and based on the other reviews, I was lucky.

GE
1 Star Review   By 47bernie on Home Depot - Nov 6, 2011   

I bought this GE Compactor and with in a couple of months the compactor did not want to work. I had to call a service man to come and check the unit out. He said that there was nothing wrong with the unit. He had it running, then after a three weeks the unit quit again. Again the service man came and had to change the whole motor and switch on the unit. He said the motor was no good. I noticed the unit's switch was made of plastic, and service man replaced it with a different switch, apparently the original switch have been defective. Please consider buying GE.

Buyer Beware!
1 Star Review   By OwnerOfOne on Home Depot - Mar 10, 2011   

Bought this compator and within 3 months had problems with the footswitch. Had it fixed under warranty. Three months later the same problem occurred. Had it fixed again. Right after the warranty expired, it broke yet again, same thing, the foot switch. Paid for that, then the switch came loose from the housing due to the poor quality of the plastic bars holding the switch in place. Just left it sitting at an angle as my family all learned how to get it to work even with the broken switch by holding the unit at an angle and using the foot switch (there is no other way to get it to compact). The handle turned from stainless to copper brown within 15 months of purchase, so you won't like that eiher. Get a plain black unit that has a turn hand switch like my in-laws have (they have a Whirlpool that is 9 years old and no problems). That will be what I buy when this unit goes to the dumpster (likely very soon!).

Very disappointed in GE
1 Star Review   By Cjtdraper on Home Depot - Nov 28, 2010   

I purchased this unit thinking it would be a quality appliance in addition to looking very nice. I was wrong; I just found out that after just a year and a half of light use it needs a new motor. I will not be replacing with another GE.
