by|Mar 15, 2024
1 Answer
Answer This Question

A:  Both units have the same exact measurements so the GFC525N should be able to fit in the same space as your current model.

        Q:Hi, will the GFC525N replace GFC325N? If so, does the drain need to be replaced as well or can the current drain from GFC325N be used?
        by|Feb 4, 2024
        1 Answer
        Answer This Question

        A:  Hello - The GFC525N would make a great addition to your home! When replacing your disposal, you should use all of the new hardware that is included with your new unit. Please remove all old hardware that was included with your old disposal. Be sure to inspect your drain line. If it is heavily coated with hardened grease and accumulations, rout out with a plumber’s snake. We recommend that you follow the steps outlined in the Installation Instructions found on pages 7-11 of the Owner's Manual: https://images.thdstatic.com/catalog/pdfImages/85/85603636-bd6b-4375-82d5-10ef94e7de47.pdf. Thanks for your loyalty to the GE Appliances brand. Take care! -Don@GEAppliances

            Good morning, Thank you for taking the time to leave a review on your GE Appliances continuous feed garbage disposer. We are sorry to hear that the bottom is rusted, as this is certainly not normal operation, nor the quality that we expect. We recommend referring to page 15 of the owners manual at the link below for instructions on initiating a warranty claim: https://products-salsify.geappliances.com/image/upload/s--tHIAyTEo--/d42e868f76ed5aa177007aab89d6caa1c9b43cd5.pdf?_ga=2.81073239.1178580140.1696253546-908362173.1674246354 Thank you for your review! -Devin@GEAppliances
              Mine broke
              I was happy with this until it broke. I bought mine in Dec 2021, and in Jan 2023 the impeller broke making it unbalanced and loud when spinning. The online description and owner's manual both say, "Peace of mind with a 5-year limited warranty." When I contacted GE Appliance Service at 1800 432 2737 for service, they argued with me that this unit only has a 1 year warranty. Still, why would this break in just over 1 year??

                  After installing this product, I turned it on and it works great. Very quiet compared to the same model I had for 8 years before the motor went bad.

                    Impellers break off
                    I am on my third GFC520. The first two, after slightly more than 2 years, broke. In each case the impellers on the grinding plate separated. We are very careful what we grind - no bones, cut into small pieces before grinding etc. Assumed the first was an anomaly. Only bought a third since customer relations offered a $50 rebate, replacement installation is easy and maybe improvements were made in manufacture. The first two were GFC520Vs, the third is a GFC520N. The disposal function of grinding works well when impellers are in place and does not lock up. Question has the impeller issue been addressed in the new model number? I would not recommend unless there were improvements made in construction of the impeller attachments to the grinding plate.

                          garbage disposal didn't last two years, need to make improvements on materials to make it last
