Customer Questions & Answers

Will the 9980 mount directly to an existing Insinkerator sink flange?

is it hardwired or plugged in?

Asked by: mohammad
There's no plug wire provided with the disposer. So you can either hard wire or install a 120 volt pigtail cord. If you have a 120 volt receptacle under your sink that is turned on and off by a switch above the counter top you will definitely need to install a 120 volt pigtail.

Will this fit a cast Iron Sink?

I see one review that states this unit will not fit a cast iron sink. Has anyone else dealt with trying to install this on a cast iron sink?
Asked by: Tbaird
Yes. The mounting flange will accommodate various thicknesses of sink material. Everything from stainless steel to cast iron.

will it work with an elkay composite sink

will it work with an elkay composite sink
Asked by: Db
I don't know the brand of my composite sink, but it barely fit. Was very difficult to mount the disposer. Took two people and many tries. I an given to understand there is a deeper collar for composite or thick sinks.

Legend Series 1.0 HP Professional 3-Bolt Mount Garbage Disposer is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 47.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from The Waste King is pretty amazing, really. All the reviews said that it's the perfect replacement ... The Waste King is pretty amazing, really. All the reviews said that it's the perfect replacement for my previous one (sorry, the brand slips my mind at the moment), plus it's 2/3 faster than my previous 1/3 speed (this one's 1hp). After installing it, the power of this thing is remarkable. Whenever I start up the 1HP Waste King, when comparing it to my previous one, it's like the difference between a Cobra Mustang's engine and a Mazda 3. Seriously, major difference in power. The reason I gave it 4/5 stars though is because, though it's said to be the perfect replacement for the stock garbage disposal that our place came with, because of its difference in size (it's a little longer), the pipe-fitting is close, but not in the same place. We made it work by cutting down one of the fittings, but if you wanted to make it perfect, you'd have to buy some new pipe fittings.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lifetime warranty! Consumer Reports sugested! Bought this unit to replace leaking 1/3 hp Badger unit. Awesome quality & power! Easy 3 bolt mount system even for ammature DIY. Quieter than lower HP units. Doubles as wood chipper. LOL

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Big Disappointment! I remodeled the kitchen and wanted to update the disposer while installing the new sink. I thought I was upgrading going from a 1/2 horse disposer to a 1.0 disposer, I was wrong! While it runs quiet and sounds powerful it does not grind up the garbage. I was trying grind up watermelon rind and it would not! Very disappointed! I will remove this one and install something that works better. It was a waste of money and time installing.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A Phoenix tale The product delivered was a dud - leaked from the bottom seal like a sieve. I called the manufacturer and had a new one in my front porch in less than 24 hours, and they are reimbursing me for the cost of the plumber - me the first time, a paid one the second. So, out of the ashes of calamity rose a company of rare integrity - and the new one is excellent.

Not quite as quiet as the top-of-the-line Insinkerator or KitchenAid but 1HP for 1/2 the cost of the others and the in-home lifetime replacement warranty clinched it for me! Installed this unit just before Christmas holiday and so far so good - unit performs well. Only difficulty I had was the first unit was delivered to store with damage to box and unit inside so I sent back. Second one came with box intact, however, the plastic outer housing was not fully seated when installed at the factory - rather disturbing but a minor issue - I simply loosened the case screws, properly seated the case, and reinstalled screws. I tested motor by momentarily plugging unit in several times and it sounded normal - called company to make sure and they confirmed that the miss-installed outer case seemed like only problem so I installed it with confidence knowing Waste King would have someone come out and replace it at their expense if it ever did fail, so I'm happy.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy install works great! Had to install a new disposal with new wiring and plumbing. Just followed instructions on disposal setup and was very easy. I also installed an air switch for it and that made a huge difference on the aesthetic side. So far it was able to eat up every vegetable and moldy leftovers I put in it and it's a lot quieter than I thought.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Waste King 1 HP So far so good a little maybe too strong for our needs I think but I was told was more durable through the years.
