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
Just use the allen wrench to free up the impeller.. just a reminder, also. don't forget if you turn the unit on, and it stops" humming", there is a little RED reset button, on the bottom, just push it

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 4845.

Make sure you check that the old one is not just jammed and/or automatically switched off by safety breaker on the underside of the old unit. If the old unit got jammed and overheated, the RED switch automatically shut down the unit, a circuit breaker. Unjam the unit by using a hex wrench on the underside to move the internal mechanism back and forth to loosen the jam. then flip back on the red circuit breaker switch mention above. The old unit likely will work fine now, or better then before. And you saved the expense of new everything plus intallation ( maybe $300 in total ). Remember these units have over 10 years of life expectancy and if it dies young, this may be the problem.. home depot doesnt tell you all this, rather keep selling you new units. Buyer Beware ( be smart)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Machine This is the second Insinkerator disposal I've installed in my house. This one is a bit more powerful than the last one. It was very easy to install, requiring minimal tools. It comes with an excellent step-by-step installation manual showing and explaining how to remove the old one and install the new one. It would be more difficult to install as a new disposal since it requires an electrical connection and some plumbing to connect to the existing drain. I was able to connect my dishwasher to this one because of the instructions, where the previous one was not. I'm very happy with it and looking forward to its service for many years to come.

This gets 5 stars because I have installed a lot of these and have never had a call back except the time when I only got 2 of the 3 tabs on the locking collar engaged. (It was a tiny leak.) They work well. Their longevity is good. I have had one in my kitchen for over 5 years and I've not had a bit of trouble. Lastly, HD is very close to my house making acquisition a snap. If I could afford to pay way more for a garbage disposal, I could afford to live in a seriously nice house and hire someone to install it. My experience supports the idea that you can't go wrong with this one.

It is quieter than my original 1/2 HP disposal, yet works just as well if not better. Since we compost the majority of our food scraps, we don't use the disposal as often as others may. But we use it enough to know that we made the right choice in purchasing this disposal as an upgrade for our newly remodeled kitchen — and for putting our house on the market. Great price, great product!

I bought this to replace an eight year old Insinkerator... price at $90-100 was a good value, with the added convenience that a) this unit used the same collar at the drain connection to the sink, and b) it’s drain connection was in the exact same relative position, so installation on to the old collar was simple, and I didn’t have to modify the drain piping one bit to make the new connection. Thank you Insinkerator for deliberately maintaining the configuration relative to your older models, to allow for simple replacement. Works fantastic, been in service for a month now - runs quiet and chews up seeds, eggshells, and rinds with no noticeable impact.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy to install, works great! My last one (same kind) lasted 7 years, so for the price, you can't beat it! It's a little louder than the more expensive ones, but it's no big deal. When you are buying a disposal, make sure it is going to fit! I first purchased a larger, more expensive one, then took it back because it wasn't going to fit without rerouting the pipes. So I got the same one and it was easy to install. Plug it in before you install it to make sure it works, and be sure to push out the tab for the dishwasher or you will have water running all over when the dishwasher drains. Just follow the directions, and look it up on youtube, and you will be fine.

Given that I have only had this unit installed for about 2 weeks, all I can say is that it works. It's easy enough to install, and I was fortunate that I didn't have to change the mount. However as someone not used to installing these regularly, I had to enlist the help of my girlfriend to hold the unit up while I reached under the sink to twist it into place. From start to finish, including reading directions, turning the circuit breaker off, getting tools, sipping coffee, etc., it was a slow and easy, no-stress, 1 hour installation. If it lasts the 10 years of the previous one, I will be happy.
