I start the trash compactor and mid way through the cycle the door comes open and it makes a loud noise. What is wrong with it?
For model number GX900QPPB2

Hi Vicki, Thank you for your question. If the drawer will not stay closed when the trash compactor is in use, you will need to check the drawer roller and the foot pedal. On most trash compactors, the drawer uses rollers to slide open and closed. These rollers can be warped or simply lack lubrication to slide the drawer open easily. To check the rear drawer rollers, lift the drawer out of its opening and check for damage or apply grease if necessary. The drawer front rollers are normally attached to the cabinet. If you need to replace a front roller, shut off the power source to the compactor and remove the unit from the cabinets. Use a socket to remove the hex nuts holding the drawer frame in place. This repair may involve removing the leveling legs from the unit in order to access the roller nuts. When reassembling the unit, make sure there is nothing blocking the drawer or rollers, and that they are well lubricated. If it is not the roller, it is likely the pedal. The pedal works with the drawer catch to release the drawer from its frame. To troubleshoot the foot pedal, pull the drawer out fully and visually inspect the pedal mounting screws to make sure they are tightened properly. Keep an eye out for any other damage to the foot pedal. We hope this helps. Thank you and have a great day.

Compactor stuck in lower position
Moved the compactor out from under cabinet and unplugged the powercable.Laid compactor over on its side Removed the top (4 screws) and base plate (3 screws) as well as the coverplate for the motor(3 screws)Found that large drive was broken in half. Used two screwdrivers to start split ring then pliers to pull it off the rest of the way.
Removed the drive gear and the washer.
Used a nail to drive out the pin for the smaller drive gear kit. Removed and replaced with new, used new pin to lock it on to the shaft. Changed out the bearings and washers on one powerscrew, put chain back on. Then was then a simple matter to put the new gear back on the chain then slide the whole thing back on the drive shaft. Replace the washer then slip the split ring back in place and seat it home with the pliers. Greased chain, gear drive and powerscrew. Put all covers back on with the screws. Pushed button it worked.

Trash Compactor ram wouldn't lower
I pulled the trash compactor out from under the counter.

I took out the four screws that kept the top cover in place to expose the ram.

The gear shafts were turning but the ram would not lower, at first I though the ram drive bolts were stripped and it wouldn't engage the shaft. Then I realized there was a mechanical directional\limit switch at the top that controlled the power and direction the gear shafts were turning, this switch was broken.

Just had to take off the front plate that was held on by a number of screws and replace the switch that was held on by two more screws. It had five wires attached to it, the new switch was clearly labeled as to which color wire went where.

Scratches in Surface
This product comes in a bottle with a brush like Liquid Paper. It goes on incredibly easy. A second coat might be needed. I wanted to prevent rust from setting in so I covered the scratches and dings. The paint is a little brighter since my washer is 10 years old but it still looks great.
