Customer Questions & Answers

Should it be connected in a line under the control of a GFCI for safety or that is not necessary ?

Asked by: Anonymous
Those shiny metal parts (sink flange, back-up flange, upper and lower mounting ring) at top of disposal are electrically isolated from all the electrical parts by the high impact plastic cover of grinding chamber. Electrical (and mechanical-electrical) problems that will occur due to rusting of non Stainless Steel parts will cause it to trip internal (thermo) circuit breaker (red reset button on disposer bottom) or circuit breaker in panel. Even if green wire of power cord were to fail allowing steel housing of motor to be electrified, your other hand is not going to be grounded. You might get a nip, but you won't be electrocuted. Unless you buy one with a Stainless Steel grinding chamber, the grinding chamber will rust.

how to maintain badger 5

any steps to keep it from smelling bad
Asked by: Anonymous
Yes, first make sure there is no yucky food stuck in there. My mother tried to put in chicken skin and it never ground up and just stuck to the side. So you can imagine.. But.. according to the documentation, you should grind some hard materials such as small bones, fruit pits, and ice. A scouring action is created by the particles inside the grind chamber. Grind peelings from citrus fruits to freshen up drain smells. Use a disposer cleaner, degreaser, or deodorizer as necessary to relieve objectionable odors caused by grease build-up. (BTW, never pour grease or fat in the disposer, or any of your drains.)

Badger 5 1/2 HP Continuous Feed Garbage Disposal is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 5779.

I am not sure how old it was but it started leaking from underneath and needed replaced. I chose this one because it was easy to install due to the fact it is the same size/dimensions and the price was lower than a lot of the other choices out there. If you are replacing one it literally only takes 15 minutes to install and that includes set up and clean up.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Badger 5 1/2 HP Top Housing Problems I had my unit in service for 2 years and 3 months when the top housing , which is plastic, cracked. I discovered it when I noticed water under my sink Also 2 year warranty is from date of manufacture and I purchased mine 6 months after date of manufacture so from the manufacturers perspective this unit was well past 2 year warranty. This is the 2nd unit and the first one failed from a crack in the top plastic housing too. That one lasted 7 years. If purchasing, I recommend you put a calendar reminder to inspect for water every 6 months and less as you approach the 2 year mark since the crack was minor and I may not have noticed it if I wasn't cleaning out the bottom of my sink base and observed some wetness. I suspect it occurred several months before I observed it.

After reading other reviews, I see others have experienced the same problems I’ve encountered over 38 years. I’m going to splurge and spend the extra 40 bucks and get a Stainless Steel grinding chamber and take a felt tip pen and write date on motor when installed. This is not the product I would recommend to a friend. old Badger which had rusted through started leaking from underneath my second badger 5 Five plus years or duty and mostly trouble free. The reason it was replaced was due to leakage the housing mounts for the motor unit rusted through the screws that were used causing it to leak, Therefore it was to be replaced. failed Badger 5

I have owned it a month and have had no issues. We moved and it didn't take long to discover the 1/3 hp installed be the builder lacked the power to do the job. This unit is moderately priced and lives up to the claim "continuous feed'!! It is quiet, powerful, and gets the job done. Installation is easy, even for the novice. I highly recommend ordering it on line (costs $21 less) and make sure you take a couple of minutes to watch you tube videos for more detailed directions on mounting the unit to the mounting ring. Manufacturers directions to this step or lacking. Unit exceeds expectations.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Tried and true. I bought a new Badger 5 to replace an old Badger 5. The old one lasted at least the 8 years I've owned my condo and I use it a lot. For replacement, I just used the existing mounting hardware and piping. The whole job took less than 30 minutes. Here's to sticking to a good, tested design...

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This InSinkErator Badger 5 lasts longer than expected! Our previous Badger 5 lasted 13 years before it started leaking! (I understand the average life span is 5 years) In this day and age of constantly changing technology it was a great relief to find the exact same model of sink disposal unit that was previously installed! The price has remained relatively the same as well. Installation is hard only because the unit is heavy, so one is trying to hold the unit up with one hand and turn the retaining ring with the other. If it's possible (to get another set of hands under the kitchen sink) to have a friend assist in the process it would be easier. This unit does what it's advertised to do and we look forward to many years of faithful service!

Didn't need to replace the collar, so this was a simple plug and play. Hardest part was removing the dishwasher output hose from the old unit. Don't forget to buy a Power Cord Accessory Kit as it's not included. Youtube videos walk you through the process of replacing the unit. No difference in performance, sound level, etc.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Electric cord is only problem Does not come with electric cord and instructs you to use cord from product you are replacing. I replaced the same make and model and that cord was virtually a permanent fixture so had to destroy it while removing. Had to go to store and buy a kit. Why don't they include a cord with the disposal when you buy it. Frustrating. Otherwise an high quality and effective disposal.
