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 4.4 out of 5 by 5618.

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.

My installation didn't require the angled pipe as I used the existing straight pipe. This disposal is little on the heavy side to install under the sink trying to lift it one handed and then attempting to connect the three locking tabs. I placed a bucket under the disposal to support it and then managed to connect the three locking tabs after some "manhandling" of it for a few minutes. Wasn't the easiest thing to do, but finally got it in the correct position and hammered the locking ring in place. The wiring on this is simple and is just a matter of removing the wires from the old unit and connecting it to the new unit. I used the existing locking tab/drain from the old unit as it was the same as the new one. Didn't see any reason to replace it as it was the same design as the new one. Really no negatives about this unit other than a little difficult to lift and install, but other than that it it a great product. Works great and is fairly quiet after a few weeks in operation now.. Now I have just have to keep my mother in law from putting potato peelings into it as she did in the old unit! They showed up in the downstairs shower stall!

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...

It had a dent along the edge of the metal bottom of the unit. It must have had to taken quite a rap to dent that metal. After trying to return it unsuccessfully to Home Depot, I installed it and it was quite noisy. I exchanged it at Home Depot at no further cost for their Badger 500 (technically the same model as the Badger 5). This unit is working perfectly. It would be nice to be assured that this was a shipping problem only and that Insinkerator Company doesn'the try to pawn off inferior products on-line at a lower price.

Of course, I haven't fed it the guts of a cantaloupe or the bones from a steak. The plumber got it installed easily and said it was a good product, same for the electrician. Quick delivery and good price from Home Depot.
