Questions & Answers

my disposal is leaking from the bottom > is this normal when it is bad, it works but leaks .

Asked by: jrs
Discovered leak this morning, leaking for a few days. Same thing, leaking internally and dripping from bottom. I have the model 444, 3/4hp. I purchased new 13 years ago. Agree with other posters, buy stainless steel. It's been a good piece of equipment and will replace today. Hope, fingers crossed, its a simple wire up and couple up job. Good luck to all with your projects!

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
5 and 500 is the same (marketing differences only) so I have read.

My badger would not spin, I only hear a hmmmmm sound coming from the disposal.

Asked by: Kakra
If you have children around, there's probably a nickle, or possibly a small rock (etc), stuck between the blade and the housing. Speaking from personal experience here. I was able to remove the nickle by turning the shaft and pulling it out. For the rock, I had to remove the disposal and take it apart at the middle. It's not as hard as it sounds.
