After 1 year, my InSinkErator Badger 500 is not working. It is not clogged and just "humms" so I know it has electric.

Answer: 
these things are junk because the grind chamber isn't stainless steel. If you don't maintain it right everything goes rusty and the motor doesn't have the potential to overcome the rusty bearings and seal's resistance. Buy stainless people!

stick the Allen hex wrench that was supplied with the garbage disposal into the slot@ bottom center of the garbage disposal. Have someone turn on the power switch and quickly crank the wrench clockwise that will free it, (be careful the wrench will kick and go flying) and u r good to go.

There should be an allen head bolt at the bottom of unit that you can use an allen wrench to turn the motor break loose the jam. If motor turns freely, then most likely the motor is bad and you'll to replace the unit.

Answer: 
It may not be clogged, but is it jammed? Sometimes something hard can get wedged between the grinding rings and keep them from spinning. Using the hex key, try to rotate the motor from underneath; if it won't budge, you have to clear the jam. If the motor spins freely, it might just be burned out.

Answer: 
You should be able to use the same mounting ring. I don't know about your drain assembly because I don't know what it looked like with the 5. My guess is that you started it in the wrong position. There are 3 several tabs and several slots on the disposal and on the mount. Like twisting on a coffee cup lid -- where you start determines where the opening in the lid will end up.

If you need to replace the mounting ring, don't forget a $1 tub of plumbers putty to make a 1/4" diameter 'snake' that forms into the gasket / seal. That stuff doesn't store well, perhaps a year.

Answer: 
Jes, I don't believe it is replaceable. There is a part1 & 2 video clip posted on youtube by Zabba 501 who shows how he fixed his rusted unit with using that flex seal rubber coating spray to seal the small pin holes. Depending on the size of your unit's rusted holes you may need to use something else like roofing tar.

I don't really know if that can be replaced, but I doubt it. You would have to contact Badger Co. to get the replacement part (if there is one available) -- so ask them. Seems to me that you would spend about $80.00 worth of money, time and effort to fix a $60.00 item and when you are done -- you still have an old disposal. Good Luck!

If it's sealed, it's not designed to be opened. Almost all of these type disposals are not repairable. If you have one under warranty, if they ask for it back, it's not because they are going to refurbish them, they usually tear them apart to find the failures so they can increase the reliability of the product..

In other words, if it's old enough to be rusted out and if you could repair that issue, the rest of the components probably aren't far behind. Like a really old car, fix the engine today and tomorrow the transmission will fail.
It's simpler, easier, and cheaper to replace the entire unit and live trouble free for years. They are easy to replace and relatively inexpensive for how long they last under the severe conditions under which they operate.

Hi,
This is Jerica from InSinkErator Customer Service. Kindly follow the instructions below on how to remove the knockout plug.
You may download a soft copy of our disposer’s manual through our website by visiting www.insinkerator.com.
1. Disconnect electrical power at the fuse box or circuit breaker box.
2. Remove the disposer from the sink per the instructions in our Installation Care and Use Manual.
3. Position the disposer on its side, on a protected floor or workbench, with the dishwasher inlet tube facing up.
4. Using a flat-head screwdriver, insert it into the dishwasher inlet tube so as to set the tip on the molded outer edge of the plug located at the end of the tube.
5. Take a hammer and tap the screwdriver all the way around this edge until the plastic plug breaks loose and falls into the disposer grind chamber.
6. Be sure to retrieve the plastic knockout plug from inside the grind chamber. Making sure power is still OFF to the disposer, turn it upside down and shake it out or, as a second option, shine a flashlight into the chamber, locate the plastic knockout plug, and use a long tongs or pliers through the top opening to pinch it and pull it out. Do NOT place your hands inside the disposer.
7. Reinstall the disposer per the instructions in our Installation Care and Use Manual.
If you wish to have a hard copy of your manual, kindly send an email to insinkeratorfeedback@emerson.com and include your complete contact information and serial number of your disposer so that we can process the request.
Thank you.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Good garbage disposal My last kenmore disposal started leaking so I chose this as the replacement. Removing the old one wasn't hard. Installing this one was much easier than I thought, however when it comes time to snap that ring on, an extra set of hands would come in handy. I'm a smaller framed woman and was able to install this by myself, but it was difficult to hold it up and snap the ring because it's heavy and the ring is very hard to stretch. It's working like a charm now. It's a bit loud, but not too bad. It powers through whatever you put down there. I'm very happy with this disposal and will buy another in the future when the time comes. But hopefully it will last a long time. October 25, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Badger 500 - great product/great price We recently purchased a house and shortly after moving in the in-sink-erator died. It was an old model of the Badger 500 (I believe it was a Badger 5), so since we were pleased with it's performance (up until it died) we decided to look at the current model of the same one. We did lots of on-line research - were pleased with the reviews we read - and so went to check out the price at out local DIY. Bonus! It was really affordable! We were able to remove the old and install the new (using the same harness that existed) in under 20 minutes (Double bonus!) and it has been humming along ever since. It is not excessively noisy and does a great job with food disposal. We are very pleased with out purchase. October 16, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Worth Replacing an Old Design The Badger garbage disposals seem like the industry standard right now. They are quiet and work well. They are designed to be assembled very easily and include directions that are good enough for anyone who commonly tackles their own projects. Make sure to pop out the tab for the dishwasher drain hose if you are hooking that up. My old disposal was actually working fine with the exception that we couldn't find a splash guard that fit properly. So we had to cover it up every time we turned it or or we would get sprayed with nastiness. Also, my old disposal seemed like it would build up a lot of food and slime inside that would smell and had to be manually cleaned out. The inside geometry and design of the Badger does not allow it to quickly build up junk inside. My local Home Depot also had everything I needed (30 minutes before closing) to re-do all of the pipes under my sink. The old pipes were glued together and not serviceable. The guy in the plumbing department spent time with me to make sure I had everything I needed. June 28, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by I got the 1/2 horse which is just a little bigger than 1/3 horse model. Comparing it to the old one it is quieter than the 8 years old disposer that I replaced, could be several reasons for that... one is that it's new, and a lot more secure to the sink than the old one, Put it in a little over two weeks ago. I don't cook a lot so it hasn't been used everyday since I but it in.... So Far, it's good October 26, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Excellent Product This was not my first disposer. Thank goodness, because I would have had to made another run to the store!! No where on the box did it say a plug was needed. Must buy separately. Lucky for me I used the one from my old one. Not all disposers are hardwired as you well know. Otherwise the Badger is great...This is my second one. The first one lasted almost 15 years October 21, 2016
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Good, basic product The Badger 500 is a decent product for use in our rental properties. It does the job, but is certainly not the quietest garbage disposal on the market. And, it does not come with a power cord, so I had to take the cord off the old disposal and install it on the new one - not a big deal if you are minimally handy. The price/performance is a good compromise. October 18, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Easy Installation Easy installation (if you bother to look at the instructions). Forgot to knock out the plug for the dishwasher drain. Had the unit all installed, and THEN decided to look at the instructions as I was registering online and saw the instruction to knock out the plug!! As a result, I had to remove the disposal and remove the plug and reinstall................ October 15, 2016
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by This purchase is a replacement for the identical Insinkerator product that failed after 5 years of moderate use. The Insikerator Badger works well and is relatively easy to install. However, this unit was a replacement for a previous badger that failed after 5 years of moderate use. Failure was due to a leak at the bottom of the unit. The plumber who made the repair indicated this was a common problem with this Badger disposal model. I'm really disappointed because I now have the same risk of failure unless Insinkerator has addressed this problem October 12, 2016
