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!

Badger 500 1/2 HP Continuous Feed Garbage Disposal is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 5370.

Turns out the 500 does not have a threaded connection in its outlet, which the 5 has. Had to adapt the connection to the existing pipes, using the included rubber ring and a plastic collar. Not a big deal, but something to be aware of. Otherwise, very simple installation using existing drain assembly.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Easy Installation, minimal DIY effort So, when i first saw the puddle of water under neath my sink I was worried! I have always been a bit nervous when it has come to plumbing, water damage is no joke! I narrowed the problem down to the garbage disposal, and immediately scoured youtube. Little did I know that home depot had posted an extremely helpful toutorial that made this repair a piece of cake. The installation was quick and pain-free. As of right now (day 3). This product has worked with out issue and the leak was repaired.

Im selling my 15 year ould home and my old Badger 5 did a great job in fact every home ive owned for the last 40 years jas had a Badger The inspector said it had a crack though i couldn't find it but i replaced it with the new 500 it was easy to install i really appreciate that Badger has kept the same design and specs so everything just fit perfectly so many companies want to update their design so they can say new and improved Badger is a name you can trust and its a proven product whos design and products can standthe test of time You can spend more and you can spend less but reliable quality is right in front of you with Badger

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Product is good value for the money I had a Badger 500 that was installed 20 years ago. We never abuse it and we always try to keep it clean, which is important. It started to leak from the case after all the years of service it provided. I went to the store and purchased the same unit. Much to my surprise it was identical to the one I removed. That sure made it easy to install. No plumbing hassle or electrical hassle. All I did was remove and replace. In a high tech world nice to see some things that work well not get changed. If it last as long as the other one, I doubt I will need to worry about it. Great product, I would recommend to anyone in need of a replacement.
