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.

It is possible that something small may have jammed between wheel and housing wall. 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.

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.

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.

Badger 500 1/2 HP Continuous Feed Garbage Disposal is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 2590.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Easy installation. Except ........ I bought the Badger 500 to replace an InSinkErator that had lasted at least 20 years. There was no problem with the installation, hanging the device was a matter of unscrewing the old and screwing on the new. The instructions were concise but I ran into a problem connecting to my plumbing. The new unit has a bolt-on 90-degree down turned discharge outlet pipe but the old was a horizontal straight bolt-on outlet pipe. Check your installation, if replacing an old unit and the discharge outlet is horizontal, also buy a 1 1/2" diameter 12" length flanged strainer tailpiece to prevent re-plumbing everything under the sink. Home Depot stocks it for $2.58 (Everbilt model C9803).

This is a "medium" quiet machine but its way better than that. No need to pay another hundred bucks for a quieter one. Easy installation IF you know to use a small hammer to move those three knobby points that stick out from the screw-on ring. Gently tap left to remove the old disposal and start the new ring righty-tighty, using your hammer to tap it firmly into place. You will need someone to help hold from above and line up the unit to the sink drain. Put down some paper towels to check from slow drips and turn on disposal several times using water. I'd wait over night to see if you have any drips - we didn't, it was a water proof connection the first time!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Worked perfect The change out was easy except the tight conditions under the sink. The only thing I was disappointed in was when I opened up the box the disposal was in there was no built in power cord on the disposal. I had to cut the cord off my old one and connect it to the new one. I'm glad I had wire nuts and a cord clamp to mount it to the disposal . Other than that it is a good product for a good price . Thanks Home Depot

Our new Badger 1/2 horse was easily installed by yours truly (a 50+ year-old-woman) whose mechanical skills rival even the best of do-it-yourselfers so if you don't have any confidence in your electrical and mechanical installation skills, you can hire me to install yours (JK).

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Met my needs but could have used a less expensive Badger 5 This disposer was purchased to replace a Badger 5 that began leaking after about 5 years. In general, the Badger 5/500 meets our needs. We don't run a large amount of waste through the disposer- mostly cleanup (stray bits of junk that accumulate). I was disappointed that the previous Badger did not last longer (victim of corrosion resulting in leakage). Installation was a 10 minute job as I just disconnected and spun off the 5 and replaced with the 500. I reused all other components (waste connection, electrical cord, etc. My biggest gripe was with the pricing. When I initially researched a replacement I found a Badger 5 at $79. My mistake that I didn't check for store inventory to see that I could only get the 500 at my local store. The 500, which is just a renamed 5, was $99. I could have gone on-line and waited two days for delivery but had already cleared my calendar for doing the replacement that night. Bottom line I paid $20 more for nothing.

This is a quality product and the installation instructions were clear and easy to follow. Including time spent removing the old garbage disposal, it took me about 20 minutes. For the install, just be sure to remember to purchase some plumbers putty while you are at Home Depot buying the InSinkErator.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good product/Fair price The product did not come with an electric cord. Rather strange for an electrical appliance. We needed to make two trips back to Home Depot to purchase the 'kit parts' to connect the disposer to the drain (about usual I suppose). Once it was connected, it functioned perfectly.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Down the Drain! The garbage disposal isn't something I use everyday. In fact, you may not notice it until you see a puddle of water. According to my wife, it's an item we can't live without. It's not as loud as our builder-grade unit and she's happy with it so that's all that matters.
