Rated 3 out of 5 by from Works Well, But Door is Unlevel This is our second KitchenAid Trash Compactor. It works very well, and is relatively quiet. However, the door doesn't sit level. The mechanism that secures the door to the drawer isn't square.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Broken after 3 days Professionally installed 2/28/2014. Motor broken on 3/3/2014. When opening door, it shifts to the right bumping top right hand corner against cabinet door. Installer indicated that the trash compactor was defective.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Horrible I love the sleek look, but can't believe I spent this much money on a piece of junk. The latch will not stay down, the front feels like it is loose & will fall off. the peddle that starts the packing process comes off due to the pin not staying in hole. control does not work properly. When not on pack it makes a horrible noise when finishing a squash.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from ok I liked my old kitchenaid compactor better, it's functional, wish it was quieter, cosmetically it looks like tin instead of stainless steel, kitchenaid is compromising quality, even the kitchenaid label does not enhance the class of this product, for the price, I expected more.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not Good Door pops open when compacting and its really loud. Several weeks out of warranty repair for loud vibration banging is going to cost me $300. I wonder if it is really worth it.
