Questions & Answers

Should it be connected in a line under the control of a GFCI for safety or that is not necessary ?

Asked by: saib
Those shiny metal parts (sink flange, back-up flange, upper and lower mounting ring) at top of disposal are electrically isolated from all the electrical parts by the high impact plastic cover of grinding chamber. Electrical (and mechanical-electrical) problems that will occur due to rusting of non Stainless Steel parts will cause it to trip internal (thermo) circuit breaker (red reset button on disposer bottom) or circuit breaker in panel. Even if green wire of power cord were to fail allowing steel housing of motor to be electrified, your other hand is not going to be grounded. You might get a nip, but you won't be electrocuted. Unless you buy one with a Stainless Steel grinding chamber, the grinding chamber will rust.

how to maintain badger 5

any steps to keep it from smelling bad
Asked by: bruno22418
Yes, first make sure there is no yucky food stuck in there. My mother tried to put in chicken skin and it never ground up and just stuck to the side. So you can imagine.. But.. according to the documentation, you should grind some hard materials such as small bones, fruit pits, and ice. A scouring action is created by the particles inside the grind chamber. Grind peelings from citrus fruits to freshen up drain smells. Use a disposer cleaner, degreaser, or deodorizer as necessary to relieve objectionable odors caused by grease build-up. (BTW, never pour grease or fat in the disposer, or any of your drains.)

Badger 5-1/2 HP Continuous Feed Garbage Disposal is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 7158.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy to install and Perfect for us! I am handy but just a normal Joe and I was able to install my Badger 5 in less than an hour in a very tight under sink situation. I replaced a Badger that was left by the previous owner but had been cracked and patched so I went with the 5 to be sure I had plenty of punch. Working well so far... The installation instructions were easy to follow and reading them through thoroughly before I began the project was helpful... No special tools (not provided with the kit) required was very helpful... The only one I bought was a head lamp (attaches to my head) to permit me to see and have my hands free. The tool in the kit worked very well to tighten the unit in the collar.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from replaced old Badger 5 with new Badger 5 The Badger 5 has lived up to my expectations for many years and that is why I replaced my existing Badger 5 with a new Badger 5. It is very easy to install, especially when replacing with the exact same model. However, the reason I had to replace the Badger 5 in the first place is because the housing at the top of the disposal was cracked and leaking in 4 places. I suspect it cracked because I put too much ice in it when I was cleaning it and the ice chilled and weakened the housing. So I've learned my lesson again that a little ice is good but that doesn't mean more ice is better. However, I will be carefully monitoring this disposal as it ages and if it cracks again I will be looking for a different manufacturer.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Leaking after 4 years requires replacement I have the 1/2 HP; installed new in our new house Sept/Oct 2013. Today it's leaking directly out the bottom which indicates internal issues that cannot be fixed. Replace. Warranty only two years. I've never had this issue in our previous houses. Looking for a different brand. Tip: always keep a solid bin under the disposal housing just for this reason. It was almost full and there was little flowing onto the cabinet floor.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great model I work as a maintenance person for a apartment complex. And whenever have to replace one of a different brand or less horse power. This is what I put in. Have bought at least 40 of these. Only problem I have had with then a resident puts fish tank rocks, thick pcs of broken glass. But that is not the disposals fault. Just non thinking people. Lol. Great product and will continue to buy.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from maybe this one will have better longevity. Replaced a Badger ! with this Badger 5. First one lasted 5 years before it rusted through and water ran into bottom of unit shorting out the motor and flooding the sink cabinet. Unfortunately, no other brand was available locally and I could not wait for one to be shipped. Can only hope this one lasts longer. Also have added a pan underneath in case it doesn't!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Badger 5 bought the Badger 5- two and a half years ago when my old Emerson quit working. use it at least 4 times a week. it started leaking out of the bottom and the center seam. most is easy to install the tabs for the lock ring is a little difficult to start but once you get that done the rest is simple. do hope this one last a longer time.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Went out with minimal use in less than 1 1/2 year. Warranty is no good unless it is installed by a licensed electrician. Warranty is useless. The product did not last with minimal usage. The company offers instruction for home installation, but to receive warranty, it must be installed by a licensed professional. Ours was installed by our son who is a licensed electrician, but that was not good enough for the company to honor their warranty.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Inexpensive and easy to install For a general food waste disposal, this is a good no frills disposal. My old one was 15 years old and never gave me problems until the end (started smoking), certainly got my moneys worth out of it. Replaced with the Badger 5 and the replacement took under 3 minutes. Highly recommend.
