Questions & Answers

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

Any suggestions?
Asked by: Brent
I am a woman, but Mine is doing the same thing. I strongly suspect that a piece 0f metal may be the culprit. I suspect a soda pop top found it's way down there. That can be repaired. I had it happen twice...I seem to never learn my lesson. I am waiting on my handyman to come and make it whole again. Good Luck.....Betty

If i am replacing a badger 5 with this 500, can i reuse the existing mounting ring and drain assembly?

Example: I have looked at the manual and can't figure out what I did wrong.
Asked by: Doug
Yes you can; practice with the new one on the unit so you know how it works.

My 5 is leaking out the bottom. Took apart-the "sealed" metal part under the blades is rotted through. Is it replaceable

Asked by: Jes
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. Hope this helps, Carl

Hi i have a badger 5 in my sink and i want to replace it. Can i replace any badger model?

Asked by: Kix
I replaced a Badger 5 with the Badger 500 and it fit to the sink perfectly. The unit was a little bit wider at the top so I had to cut the drain pipe from the disposal to the main drain by about 3/4".

Badger 500 1/2 HP Continuous Feed Garbage Disposal is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 3647.

It is quieter than my original 1/2 HP disposal, yet works just as well if not better. Since we compost the majority of our food scraps, we don't use the disposal as often as others may. But we use it enough to know that we made the right choice in purchasing this disposal as an upgrade for our newly remodeled kitchen — and for putting our house on the market. Great price, great product!

I scrape uneaten food and oil off of plates, pans and pots into the trash for disposal to the landfill. Running disposal is fairly quiet. Badger 500 replaced the Badger 5 which lasted over ten years. Easy self installation. Met my expectation.

I was a little hesistant at first because the old Badger was somewhat noisy. But to my surprise after the easy installation I found this Badger 500 to be fairly quiet. It does not come with a power cord nor cord strain relief. I was able to remove the power cord from the old disposal and re-purpose it on the new disposal. The new disposal works well.

Directions were easy to follow. Read through them until you fully understand them prior to the install. Removal of the old unit and install of the Badger 500 Tom about 25 minutes ( had all the tools I needed on hand including plumbers putty). No modifications to existing plumbing was required. Quiet operation and highly effective cutting and disposal of waste was clearly evident. You can't go wrong with a Badger/ISE disposal.

I will say that using anything less than 1/2 HP might not be ideal as the 1/3hp is fairly weak.

This replaced an older Insinkerator disposal, and took only about 10 minutes to install -- including clearing out all the stuff under the sink. It perfectly matched the existing fitting & exit port, and the wiring was trivially easy. I wish every plumbing project went like this.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from An easy install in a relatively cramped space We installed this unit in a 200 year-old house that has never had a disposal before, and, in trying to keep the character of the nineteenth century kitchen, we didn't have a lot of space. Larger, more powerful (and quieter) units simply would not suffice. We also had to install an under-the-sink switch since there were no pre-wired circuits. All in all, everything went well and the unit is working fine. It is a bit noisy since we have to open the under-sink door to access the switch but we knew that would be a possible issue. We chose this unit because we have had good success with Insinkerator units in previous homes.

Really NOT hard to install (Daughter and I put in new sink and faucet and this new disposal in about 3-4 hours- includes time taking out old sink/ faucet/ disposal) Works well but reason for the THREE stars is that the upper 1/2 of the disposal is made of plastic. The disposal it was replacing developed a large crack in the plastic part and actually looked to be this exact same product. What happened to an affordable ALL METAL HOUSING disposal??? Have no doubt it will last for 5+ years or more but also no doubt it will probably develop a crack just like our old one. Still recommend it though as an economical but probably temporary disposal.
