Thanks for the answer to my previous question. Could you please advise which model I need to choose to have an easy replacement(I mean no change to the current power wire,dishwasher connection, discharge elbow,etc) to GFC705R 01? BTW-my current model has a power cord (one end connected inside the wall and the other end inside the disposal with wire nuts). Thanks.

Drain stopper/sealer lid 2?

I recently asked if there was a drain stopper/sealer lid to go with this GE disposal. The reply sent me to a link of Home Depot products. None of the products mentioned fit my request. 1. I do not need a new disposal, I just bought this one, but it doesn't come with a drain stopper. 2. the diameter of the drain is only 3 inches. The drain stoppers mentioned in the link are for 3 and a half inch diameter drains. Please answer my original question. Is there a drain stopper/sealer lid for this GE disposal that has only a 3 inch diameter drain. Thank you.

Drain stopper/sealant lid 3

I recently asked if there was a drain stopper that i could BUY for this garbage disposal, but reading my manual, it appears that there should have been a drain stopper included with the disposal. There is not a drain stopper included. Is there a GE replacement parts service telephone number I can call?

Can I replace my GE 1/3 hp model (GFC2954Y) with the GFC520V 1/2 hp unit?

Can I replace my GE 1/3 hp model (GFC2954Y) with the GFC520V 1/2 hp unit?
Asked by: mt
Hello mt - this is Nancy at GE Appliances and we are happy to help you. Yes, you can use this as a replacement. When replacing an existing GE disposer with a new one, the new one will typically fit into the same space. The dimensions have remained constant over the years to allow easy hookup to existing plumbing. All disposers fit into standard sinks with a 3-1/2" drain opening. Drain size from disposer must be 1-1/2" diameter. Vertical distance from bottom of sink to centerline of the drain coming through the wall should be 7" or more. I hope this helps! Thanks for checking with us!

1/2 HP Continuous Feed Garbage Disposal is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 382.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Piece of garbage. Failed in less than two years with very limited use. Most of the garbage dispos... Piece of garbage. Failed in less than two years with very limited use. Most of the garbage disposals have screw at the bottom that can be rotated using allen wrench to get it free. Disposal made by another manufacturer which is in my another house has been working well for 12 years. Whenever I had a jam, I was able to free it with allen wrench ($3 item) specifically made for disposal. GE unit (GFC525V) does not have such a feature; so you will be out of luck if your disposal gets jammed and will have to pay someone to fix it. I am throwing this out and replacing it with one similar to what I have in another house.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Difficult to knock out plug It was very difficult to knock out the plug for the dishwasher. Unlike the previous. GE disposer I had with a separate plastic plug, this GFC520V, has a plug that is part of the whole piece and I was afraid it would crack the other parts. Also, when I received it and was trying to unscrew the support screw from the sink flange, it was too tight. It took me more than an hour to replace my old GFC520F to this new GFC520V. But it all worked out in the end. Hopefully it will last for years like the old one.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Mediocre This disposal was part of the package supplied by the community builder. You need to continually push the food residue into the disposal for it to be ground up or the water builds up quickly in the sink AND the disposal is very noisy.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice compact disposer The disposer is more compact than most. It also operates at a higher RPM. Overall it does a nice job. I was also hoping it would be very queit, which it was not noticeably different than the disposer it replaced.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Quiet We are very pleased with the disposal. The biggest and most important, to us, feature is just how quiet this is! No matter what you put into it, there is less noise. Such a treat from our last contraption!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Disposer for the Money Just installed replacing a different model GE disposer that finally broke. Easy to install and quiet. Execellent choice for the money.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Does the Job Works as it should, but is a tad louder than our old one. Don't really care, as long as it is working and continues for a long time.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great as expected. Bought it to replace the GE one that came with the house which broke. Quiet and effective.
