Questions & Answers

After 1 year, my InSinkErator Badger 500 is not working. It is not clogged and just "humms" so I know it has electric.

Any suggestions?
Asked by: Brent
Use an allen wrench or go to hardware store and get a disposal wrench (same thing) and put it in the central hole at bottom of unit and turn. If rotor is just rusted to outer ring, you may be able to turn it this way, until it can be turned by the motor torque. Use unit periodically to keep it from rusting up.

If i am replacing a badger 5 with this 500, can i reuse the existing mounting ring and drain assembly?

Example: I have looked at the manual and can't figure out what I did wrong.
Asked by: Doug
The Badger 5 and Badger 500 are the exact same machine. The 500 is labeled at InSinkErator for sale by Home Depot. Other than the label, it's the same unit. If it looks different from the old one it's only because they updated it at the factory. The new Badger 5 would appear different from the old one and again, is identical to the Home Depot labeled Badger 500.

My 5 is leaking out the bottom. Took apart-the "sealed" metal part under the blades is rotted through. Is it replaceable

Asked by: Jes
It depends on several factors such as how long you've had the unit, and if it's still under warranty, along with what parts are actually leaking and available for repair.....the manufacturer's customer service should be able to help you with that! There are parts catalogs along with service repair catalogs made available for repair people for all the newer models and all appliances for that matter! And I've noticed over the years, manufacturers are making it harder for the average consumer to find these catalogs on the internet. Greedy manufacturers have always catered to plumbers and service repair people rather than your average do-it-yourselfer who is capable of repairing the unit with some replacement parts, if shown how.....and that's very unfair for the do-it-yourselfer who can't afford a plumber every several years because these disposals now rust through and leak and crack are not even made to last more than 2 years! I guess the objective is for consumers to have to buy these units every 2 years and hire a plumber to install them! What a shame and a rip-off to the comsumer purchasing these products!!! COMPLAIN CONSUMERS, COMPLAIN!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Third Insinkerator Unit I installed an insinkerator several years back and the bottom rusted out. Research said to get another one so I did. Did not have to change out the sink flange and easily installed the disposer to the existing flange with nothing more than a screwdriver.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Worked better than expected. Replaced a higher end model (InSinkErator Evolution Compact). I needed a model that was not as wide and the Badger 500 fit the bill. The unit fit the same fittings and runs quieter than the previous model which literally leaned against the drain pipes underneath (the sink lines where unconventional and could not be modified too much). The unit is quieter and gave just enough room to replace some piping.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from I am not sure what rating they're asking for. ... I am not sure what rating they're asking for. The product came in a box, it installed, and worked like it should. If that is all they want then it should receive an excellent, but the true rating of any product is in its longevity. Ask me in 18 years and I feel I could give a better report.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Normal use 7 years The price is right, The last three lasted me 7 years, meaning, $110 every 7 years is ok. Now i know how long I’m good for before it starts leaking. Too bad they don’t make one with repairable seals. I would pay extra for that one.
