I too had a disposal that would make a humming noise but was not working. It would then cut out after about 5-10 seonds and I could smell a slight burning scent that I knew was not a good sign. After using the alan wrench and manually turning it for a couple of minutes (there was a lot of resistance because I was dealing with pieces of glass) it freed up enough and I reset the unit using the red button Read More

If you haven't fixed this yet, find the Allen wrench that came with the unit, insert it in the hexagonal space on the bottom of the unit and turn. Simple fix to get your flywheel back on track. The whirring you hear is the flywheel trying to seat itself.

Insert the wrench in the center on the bottom side and try turning or jiggling it back n forth. Then remove the wrench and try the switch again. If you can not find your wrench then carefully try using a broom handle inserted into the disposer and apply leverage to one of the blades. Yes just like in silly comedy's but with the Power OFF. Be sure to do these steps with the disposer turned off and remove the broom handle before trying the switch again. If none of these steps work its time to call an expert. Read Less

Answer: 
There is a reset on the bottom of the unit. It is usually red. If by chance your unit is bound up for some reason, there is usually a large allen wrench that comes with the unit. There is an allen socket on the bottom center that you use the wrench to lossen a bound unit.

Hello and thank you for your question. It is possible that there is a jam in the disposer. Let’s try some quick troubleshooting. The service/Allen wrench that is provided in the box with the disposer, can be used when the disposer becomes jammed (or can be purchased if needed). Please ensure the disposer is electrically turned-off first then insert the wrench into the hole located at the very center of the bottom of the disposer (picture included shows the location of the hole). Force the tool back-and-forth in an effort to release the jam. Once one is able to turn the wrench freely, remove it. This is to be done prior to turning the disposer back on electrically. Also prior to turning the disposer back on, check the grind chamber and retrieve any hard or foreign object using tongs. Please do not use your hands. Once the object has been removed, turn the disposer back on. If you determine that the above steps do not work for you, please give our customer service center a call (1-800-558-5700) and they will be happy to continue troubleshooting with you. Thank you again for your question and I hope this information is helpful to you. Read Less

Answer: 
Sounds like its jammed. The unit should have come with a hex key that you insert into the bottom of the unit. If its jammed, you insert this key and manually turn the internal motor/grinder unit to dislodge what may have jammed it.

I just replaced my Badger 5 with a Badger 900. I used the existing drains and fittings. My only problem was the 900 has a discharge tube coming out of the disposal that goes down and my old piping configuration went straight across. I bought a new discharge tube that was straight and it worked fine. If your current piping goes down out of the disposal, then it should be just fine as is.

Ronald, The 5xp if i remember correctly has galvanized internals. Based on my experience 7 yrs is not a bad run for a disposal with a galvanized grind chamber. If you haven't already replaced it, I would recommend one of the higher end models with stainless internals. They're longer lasting and produce far less noise.

Rated 4.5 out of 5 by 1007 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great bang for the buck The Badger 900 disposer is and incredible value for the money. It has enough power to do most anything and while it isn't the quietest disposer ever made the sound level is not objectionable at all. Overall it is a great buy... although the cost is only a little more than a less capable unit the Badger 900 should be considered and it should serve you well. The grinding blades and grinding chamber are stainless steel so it should last a long time. If you need a good, capable and high value unit then this may be the best bang for the buck on the market. August 9, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Badger 3/4 HP Garbage Disposal This is the second Badger I own the first one was removed by contractors when my counter top was replaced they removed it and replaced it with a cheap 1/2 HP garbage disposal. The cheap garbage disposal lasted just about 13 months 1 month over replacement. I purchase the Badger 3/4, this machine has the power and is quite, it is easy to install, my wife loved it. August 10, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great product!! Have only had disposer in for about a month, but it's been working awesome. It was a replacement for badger 5/8 hp. That disposer lasted 13 yrs. this one is 3/4 hp and really does seem much stronger for the extra money(about 40.00 more). I'm from the school that says you get what you pay for. My 27 yr. old son installed it in about 30 minutes. We did have Home Depot installation video playing in the background in case we had any issues, but we did not. So, i have very high expectations for this new disposal, and so far it's living up to those expectations. Ps...just a little info, do not put potato peels in your disposer, EVER!! Your disposer will last a very long time. July 27, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Bad As I was trying to give a review of the product,,, home depot cut me off to give a real review of the 900 Badger disposal...Don't buy it folks it does not fit and will waste 5 hrs trying to get it fixed and connected under the sink even with friends that know how to do it. I have replace 25 disposals in my rentals,,,, no problem,,, this one is junk. ' August 27, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Good purchase This disposal replaced another Insinkerator model that was more than 10 years old, and that one had replaced one that was several years old and was replaced totally free under warranty several years after installation. It is average in quietness. I don't know whether it is just my drain system, but I cannot put a bunch of eggshells in without stopping up the drain. I have always been happy with Insinkerator products. August 17, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Very Good Disposer Easy to assemble although it will take you much longer if it is a replacement unit. It takes at least a half an hour to remove you old disposer. You may have to replace old drain parts which can be frozen or will break when you remove them. Transferring your power cable to the new unit may take half an hour. Factor in a run to your favorite hardware store. Write down the serial number before you install the unit, you will need it to register your product. That way you won't have to go under the sink to get it once the disposer is installed. The installation instructions were very straight forward and easy to understand. The diagrams were very good. December 5, 2015
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Works great This garbage disposal has done its job flawlessly over these first few months. It isn't super loud nor is it silent when it's on. With tougher items it might take a few extra seconds, but it gets the job done. It's also reasonably priced and we're just talking about a garbage disposal. Based on our experience thus far getting rid of small food scraps in the sink, it's great. August 21, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Easy to Install - Does a Great Job! Because the unit fit on the existing sink ring/connection so well, we only took off the old disposal and installed our new Badger 900. It was so easy and took about 20 minutes--if that. We did it this way, because we needed a quick change. We should have installed the additional "sinkware" with the unit, but this way helped with our immediate needs. I've kept the "sinkware" to add at a later date. The unit works great. You definitely get the impression it can handle anything. It's a little loud, but who cares! To me, that just means it's got strength and power! Great choice for our family July 29, 2016
