Default Compactor won't stop after unpacking
Model Number: GCG1580P0SS   Brand: GE   Age: Less than 1 year   

Appliance Parts from AppliancePartPros.com


When I activate the compactor you can hear it go down and start back up. Rather than stopping when it should, it makes a very loud thump thump thump noise until I start to open the drawer. At that point the noise stops.

Also, when I set the switch for SOLID PACK, it doesn't. It goes down and immediately comes back up and finished by making the THUMP THUMP THUMP rapid sound until i try to open it.

Hi...I have the same problem. Did you get your fixed and if so, do you know what part was defective? I have exactly the same model and have already replaced the limiter switch - but that didn't fix it.
Thanks for any help you can give me.

Most likely the problem is a bad start-run rotary switch.

If the model number and the problem are exactly the same, then the solution is probable the same as well.

Default burned out switch bottom right side

The switch at the lower right hand side used to activate the compacter was burned and sticking in the IN position causing the compactor to continue to run. Swapped out the switch and works fine.
