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.

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.

Is there an electrical cord included?

Do I need to buy a seperate electric cord? Or it included with the unit?
Asked by: DebRA
Hi, this is Jerica from InSinkErator® Customer Service. Badger 100 does not include a power cord. If this disposer has to be plugged to an outlet, an InSinkErator Power Cord Kit (CRD-00) can be purchased separately. If you have questions, please do not hesitate to contact us through insinkeratorfeedback@emerson.com or call InSinkErator AnswerLine at 1 (800) 558-5700. Thank you.

I was pleased to see that the new unit came with a 1 1/2 inch discharge tube and an electrical cord. The unit is very quiet, much quieter than the unit I replaced. Installation might be easy for someone with a lot of upper body strength, but I could not hold the unit up against the sink and lock it in place. I made an amazing discovery that made the installation very easy. I took a scissor jack and two small pieces of wood and jacked the garbage disposal up against the sink which held it securely in place while I latched the unit in place. I was amazed at how easy it was installing the unit using the jack. If you are in need of a new garbage disposal this unit was relative in-expensive and contained all of the parts needed to install it. You should not be disappointed purchasing this appliance.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Don't forget to get putty My old disposer quit working after 9 years. I replaced with same model so I don't have to re-adjust fittings. It had been 9 years so I forgot to what come with and what doesn't come with unit. * Plug in cord doesn't come with unit, it's Okay I can re-use from old one or take from my junk appliance. * Wire retainer doesn't come with it, my old one doesn't have it either and I can't find anything to substitute in my garage, I had to use zip tie. * Sink putty didn't come with unit. I re-use sink flange, otherwise I had to go back to HD to get just putty. I waste new flange and gasket by reusing old flange. I would be appreciate if small tube of patty came with it. most people need it anyway unless reusing same sink flange. * One tip for installation. Get scissor jack from your car's trunk to hold unit while installation. It's so much easier than holding it with your knees or ask your wife to hold it. * Also don't forget to punch out dishwasher connect pipe. It was written in installation manual but I forgot to do so until I found out next day my wife used dishwasher.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not a bad product Problems with installing because item on the disposer that is configured in the wrong place making it difficult to handle while installing 1. Putting the electrical panel cover on the bottom makes it awkward to connect the wiring because it has to be connected before the unit can be mounted on the ring that holds it to the sink. I think it would be more easy to install if the panel was on the side. Placement on bottom might work well with new installation but not well with replacement.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Worth Replacing an Old Design The Badger garbage disposals seem like the industry standard right now. They are quiet and work well. They are designed to be assembled very easily and include directions that are good enough for anyone who commonly tackles their own projects. Make sure to pop out the tab for the dishwasher drain hose if you are hooking that up. My old disposal was actually working fine with the exception that we couldn't find a splash guard that fit properly. So we had to cover it up every time we turned it or or we would get sprayed with nastiness. Also, my old disposal seemed like it would build up a lot of food and slime inside that would smell and had to be manually cleaned out. The inside geometry and design of the Badger does not allow it to quickly build up junk inside. My local Home Depot also had everything I needed (30 minutes before closing) to re-do all of the pipes under my sink. The old pipes were glued together and not serviceable. The guy in the plumbing department spent time with me to make sure I had everything I needed.

The installation of the Badger 900 was relatively easy but one frustrating thing is it did not provide a wire feed through clamp. if you are a plumber thats fine; you have 100 clamps in your truck. But for a homeowner it was major problem. I took the wire off the old disposal and had to destroy the factory installed rubber molded clamp on that one to get the wire off. Now I had to make trip back to HD and buy a whole package of feed through clamps for $5. OF course now i have 8 clamps that will last for the next 10 years. Oh this turned a 1 hour job into 3 for the sake of saving Insinkerator 5 cents for a clamp they did not provide. At least they put the hole in the base for the clamp to go into. This one is a bit noisy but i refused to pay another $50 for a quite one.The last one "Badger 9" lasted 10 years.

The only problem I had with it is that the discharge connection has a small pipe with a 90 degree elbow and the unit it is replacing was a straight connection to the discharge drain, so I had to get creative (at 10pm). But installation very simple.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy install, very reliable This was an easy direct replacement of my old insinkerator. This isn’t the fanciest unit but it is also significantly smaller than the higher end units. That was an important feature for me because of limited space under the counter. It does everything that I need.
