Do you need a swith or a push buton with it bc mine i have to uplug it when im not using it otherwise it will run all day

Asked by Ros April 22, 2021

Answers

Yes. It should be installed with a switch but you can plug it in and unplug it every time you want to use it. You should install a switch to control the outlet you are plugging it into.

what foods should not go in disposal

Asked by lu April 22, 2021
5
Answers

Lol, all foods should NOT go into plumbing pipes. That said, simply put in the trash everything you are able to pick up with your hand from the sink and place in the trash. Everything else can go through the garbage disposal and then flush with plenty of water (to keep things moving through the pipes instead of forming a clog in the pipe just past the disposal unit).

Installation services available for this garbage disposal?

Asked by Chris February 23, 2021

Answers

I bought one back in March. Still waiting to even be contacted for installation. There is no accountability for their claim that someone will be available within 48 hours. Terrible experience thus far.

I need to replace my 1/3 hp 1, 1-83a What are the differences between the 1, the 1xl, and the 100...

Asked by Rick February 8, 2021

Answer

Hi Rick, thanks for reaching out! The Badger 100 (Home Depot exclusive product) and Badger 1XL (Lowe's exclusive product) are comparable to Badger 1. The only difference is the 2-year warranty on Badger 1XL, but the same high quality of materials and workmanship are found on all models.

You will have to replace soon
If you like replacing garbage disposals, this may be the one for you. Despite not using it a ton it died before the 2 year mark.

Hi Jon, thanks for sharing your comments. We're always working hard to improve our products and we value your candid feedback. The life of an InSinkErator® Disposer is entirely dependent upon service conditions and usage patterns, just as is expected with other small home appliances. We know that unintended problems do arise in the kitchen, so if you’re having an issue with your disposer, you may want to check our Support page for some troubleshooting tips: https://insinkerator.emerson.com/en-us/support.
Very nice and easy to install
Just install it last month but I have the old one badger 5 for 11 years without any problem that why I decided to install exactly the same model on my new renovated kitchen
by Judasito
makes life much easier
took me some time to connect the pipe, but it is worth it, and I can throw away my green garbage bin

good product at good price
This disposal installed quite easily, runs effectively and quietly. It fit into my standard 2 basin sink perfectly. Very happy with this disposal

My InSinkErator Badger 500 1/2 hp garbage disposal only lasted for 10 month.
I bought this Badger 500 1/2 hp online on September 29 2013 from Homedepot (HD), received it on Oct. 2 2013 and since then had stored it at home as an emergence replacement. When my last one suddenly failed on October 30 2019, I put on this one on October 31 2019. Today, it's Aug 23 2020, I suddenly saw a full bowl of water (in the photo [fig1], I already dumped the water from the bowl but you still can tell water leak from two screws [fig2,fig3]) under the sink and overflowed onto the plastic cloth under the bowl. Fortunately, I always put an open plastic container under the disposal for I am always prepared for the worse situation. So this one only lasted for 10 months. Because I bought it from HD in Oct 2013 but didn't install it until October 31 2019, so I even don't know how to go about claiming that three year warranty. Maybe this one is a lemon one? I put my review here to let people know the quality of Badger 500 1/2 hp. Very disappointed with InSinkErator Badger 500. I still have my original electronic order receipt. The email hidden from the public is my HD account name so you can find all my contact.

Hi, I apologize for your experience with our product. The life of an InSinkErator® Disposer is entirely dependent upon service conditions and usage patterns, just as is expected with other small home appliances. Leak from the disposer can sometimes be caused by improper installation where the water could be leaking from a higher place like the mounting assembly. To determine where exactly the leak is coming from, please refer to this link: https://bit.ly/2FUeIHr. Our quality control team and top-notch engineers are always testing our products to make sure you get the very best quality. If we find a flaw, we fix it and stand behind it. Therefore, we warranty our products for any manufacturing quality issues. Details about our warranty policy can be found in your product's manual or our website here: https://bit.ly/2YwEQPi.

No Plumber Needed-DIY All The Way
I needed to replace my disposal, so I bought the same exact Insinkerator model. Didn't need to replace the mounting bracket, so it was a simple step-by-step replacement which took no more than 15 minutes. I had never installed one before. Couldn't have been easier. Couldn't have been a more satisfying project.

It was what the plumber had in his truck
We had to replace our disposal. The plumber had this unit in his truck. That is what he used. But registering it was difficult. The serial number and model number were not on the box or anywhere accessible. They were under the sink on the back side. Fortunately I had a selfie stick and about a dozen pictures until I could see the numbers. This is hard for a senior citizen with arthritis.

We had the Badger 5 at the home we bought 18 years ago so I don't know its exact age but we bought it again with cord attached.Seems to be good after 2 months use , hard to input on line for warranty registration. Product came faster for delivery than quoted, wish H.D. would stock this at least one out of 5 stores.

Replacement of my old Badger
I replaced my existing Badger that was at least 17 years old, but not more than 33 years old if installed by the builder. The existing unit developed a leak due to corrosion (see attached photo). Removal of the old unit and installation of the new unit was an urgent mater that was made difficult by the existing plumbing and wiring. At the time, I was not in the mood for replacing or rearranging all of the plumbing under the kitchen sink. Also, access to under the sink was not easy because of the double-door cabinet under the double-tub sink. I did not purchase the Badger 5 with a cord because I did not have a convenient electrical outlet under the sink. However, I would recommend the electrical cord option for any first-time installation or if doing a kitchen remodeling job. No surprise that the new Badger 5 performs noticeably better than the old unit.

The garbage disposal was easy to install and works fantastically. I am a novice and I believe anybody with the proper tools which the item came with can install.
