    Q:Hello, I am ordering the Badger 500 with dish washer hook up and power cord. It will replace an older Badger 500. The sink flange (that says Insinkerator) is older, and the rubber food strainer (?) is messy. Do I need to purchase these separately?

    Answer This Question

    A:  Hi Emmy, thank you for your question. The sink flange and the mounting gasket are already included in the package when you buy a brand new disposer.

      Q:If you have a dishwasher are you supposed to remove the plug on the dishwasher hose hook up? Thank you

      Answer This Question

      A:  Hi, thanks for the question. Yes, if you're going to connect your dishwasher to your disposer, you have to remove the (knockout) drain plug from the disposer. It needs to be removed so that it can drain through the disposer. If you're interested, there are directions for removing the knockout drain plug available on InSinkErator's YouTube channel in the "How to Install and Remove a Garbage Disposal" video. (knockout) drain plug information begins at the 3-minute mark. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=E0WTUcp85_0.

          Arrived completely damaged
          I could tell before it was even out if the box that it was damaged. The most frustrating part is that it was shipped inside of another, undamaged box. Therefore, it was repacked and sent off after someone returned it before.

              Great garbage disposal! I installed it by myself.
              I watched a YouTube video that gave me the courage to install the complete disposal myself. Here are a few tips for ladies who want to install the disposal. Familiarize yourself with everything before starting the installation. Buy an inexpensive bottle jack (usually under $20). Use the jack to place the disposal exactly where you need it before locking it in. If it’s noisy or vibrating after installation, then the mounting screws may be over-tightened. Loosen them up a little bit.
