Professional delivery and installation is available for every product we sell. We would be happy to coordinate delivery and installation for you.

The manufacturer's parts and labor warranty is typically for only 1 year but for as little as $110 for an appliance with a purchase price of under $500, you can have peace of mind for a total of five years. Kitchen package appliance coverage plans are available if you wish to protect multiple appliances at the time of purchase.

Did you know that the average cost for a service company to come to your home and diagnose an out-of-warranty appliance problem is $100.00. Once the problem is determined, there is the additional expense for parts and labor to resolve it. Appliance repairs can range between $150 and $500.

If you are concerned about spending money on a service contract you will never need, our New Leaf ServicePro extended service plans will refund 50% of the service contract purchase price to you if no covered appliances have service calls during the extended warranty coverage period. It's simple and inexpensive to purchase extended warranties and one of the smartest ways to protect your investment.

JUNK

Dissapointed 2/7/2016

Owned a year and the repairman could not fix it. Compared to others on the market this is junk. Get one that has afoot pedal and no special bags.

Compactor Review

Rudi 11/16/2015

The overall quality of the appliance is good. The interlock actuator could be re-engineered. We have had to replace it after having the appliance for only a month. Other than that the compactor works well.

Makes a difference

Wyogirl13 10/14/2015

I bought this product because where I live we don't receive garbage service so it makes such a difference of storing the bags until I get to the garbage dump.

dont buy this model

Tddcharles 8/28/2015

We love our suite of Electrolux appliances except for this one. Have had numerous problems and repairmen can't seem to fix it. Besides that the design of this model is unlike any compactor I have seen. No foot pedal so you have to physically open door with hands then grab drawer and slide it out. Not good when hands are full or dirty with trash! Compactor broke after about three months and repairman has replaced everything he says should fix it but still not working. Electrolux has been good so far but stay away from this model and choose professional model.

Not User Friendly but Quiet

bostycutah 5/27/2015

I have had this for 6 months now and have owned many other compacters before. This one is not user friendly at all. The first and biggest issue with it is that it requires TWO steps to open it. The first is that you have to open the door (using your dirty hands with trash) and the 2nd is that you have to then pull out the trash canister (again with dirty, full hands). Then you have to push it all back in with dirty hands. The 2nd issue is that opening it conflicts with the other cabinets around it. So, you can't open the drawers or doors next to the compacter because the door swings open in front of it. ALWAYS have a conflict with this! Lastly, the trash compacter bags are a special and very expensive purchase and don't even have 4 corners to tie together like less expensive over the counter bags have. If I had done my research I would have never purchased this but now I am stuck with it. I will say that it is quieter than other models I have had and it does compact fine enough but those positives don't make up for it's shortcomings. Just get something else.

Wouldn't be without one!

Sandy 5/11/2014

We have always had a trash compacter in our homes. The Electrolux model is great! It is amazing to see how well and compact the trash can actually get! Also, the stainless steel is easy to keep clean.

compactor

Ike 1/24/2013

I do not like the swing door at all. My old one pulled out and you dropped your trash in, this one you have to open and then pull out the drawer. My husbands hates it compared to the old one we had. Do not like the places you push to get it to compact. You can not hardly see them. Just not a good design.

Problems with the 15" Compactor

Woody 8/3/2012

I purchased a new Electrolux Compactor in January of this year. About a month ago it stopped working. The repairman contacted Electrolux and decided on parts replacement. The replacement parts were installed and it still did not work. Other parts were ordered to no avail. I am completely discusted with this machine and will never purchase another Electrolux product.

Trash Compactor

Rosie 8/2/2012

I purchased all new electrolux appliances expecting top of the line equipment for the price I paid. The trash compactor broke within the first 3 months. It had to be uninstalled and taken back to the shop for repair. It still will not compact a tissue box it is nothing more than an expensive garbage can. The refrigerator makes all kinds of noise and does not make enough ice for more than 3 glasses of drink. The double ovens are fine but the dishwasher does not effectively clean dishes unless it is set on heavy. What a disappointment.

Trash Compactor Looks Better than it Performs

crg 8/2/2012

The compactor is very stylish looking but performance is lacking and not user friendly. The Door swings open rather than slides out which is an issue with the surrounding cabinetry. It is difficult to determine if the load is in compact mode consequently trash can be disposed 'on top of" the compacting element. The special bags are expensive.
