Hello,

Sounds like the problem is a bad motor centrifugal switch and/or a bad start windings. The correction is to replace the motor.

- The motor assembly Part number: WC26X10006

Part number: WC26X10006


Here are the breakdown diagrams and Parts for GE GCG1700L0II Compactor - AppliancePartsPros.com

Default compactor

by holding the pedal up you are in a way bypassing one of the switches. the reason you can take the gear off and it still work is because the two switches do not have to be activated if the ram is not moving. there is a start and reversing switch. replace them both just to be sure.

Be careful when replacing the motor on a GE. I have had that adapter harness pictured above come wired wrong. It would start going up and stop. Two motors later we found out it was cutting off on overload due to that harness being incorrect from the factory.
