KitchenAid Complaint - Beware Kitchen Aid Trash Compactors, Piece Of Junk!!!
We paid $876.00 on 1.29.09 for a new Kitchen Aid Trash Compactor and installed it about a week later. There have been several times that this unit has frozen up but it has continued to work until 10.18.09 when it froze while running, causing us to have to remove it and unplug the motor. Our repairman today said the PLASTIC DRIVE GEAR IS COMPLETELY FRACTURED INTO TWO PIECES AND MUST BE REPLACED!!! THIS UNIT HAS ONLY BEEN USED IN OUR HOME FOR 8 1/2 MONTHS AND ALREADY THE GEAR DRIVE IS BROKEN!!! THIS COMPACTOR IS A PIECE OF JUNK. BEWARE THIS BRAND OF COMPACTOR AS IT WILL NOT LAST. I WILL NOW HAVE TO SPEND MONEY TO BUY A NEW GEAR AS I WANT THIS REPAIRED AS SOON AS POSSIBLE. AVOID KITCHEN AID TRASH COMPACTORS AS THEY ARE SORRY. I WISH I HAD NEVER MADE THIS PURCHASE. BEWARE THIS BRAND AS THEY ARE TOTALLY JUNK!!!!
