Q:If you have a dishwasher are you supposed to remove the plug on the dishwasher hose hook up? Thank you
by|Feb 14, 2024
1 Answer
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.

    Q:I have a badger model 100-1 with S/N 17061328624 what is the replacement for this model
    by|Feb 10, 2024
    1 Answer
    Answer This Question

    A:  Hi Diana, We appreciate your inquiry. We still make the same model; you can look at this same Badger 100 and disregard the -1 as that is only an engineering number and has no difference.

      Q:Does this disposal have any kind of power wires coming from it? I have an on/off switch under the sink.
      by|Feb 7, 2024
      1 Answer
      Answer This Question

      A:  Hi Barry, thank you for your question. This model does not come with a power cord. If you need to plug the disposer into a power outlet, you will need to purchase a power cord kit (model CRD-00). However, there are wires at the bottom that allow for a hardwired connection.

              Installed without issue and working great. I purchased this to replace an older model InSinkErator Badger 500 that lasted 7+ years.

              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.

                Great products trusted durability
                Owned three homes over the years. InSinkErator's were in all of them. Got a new kitchen going in. Thought about reusing the present garbage disposal but i bought a new one. Will save 15.00 bucks and repurpose the electrical cord. I trust the InSinketator brand.

                Response from InSinkEratorMay 1, 2023
                Hi! We appreciate your feedback. We offer both corded and uncorded units. Many retailers choose to carry the uncorded units with a separate power cord kit in order to accommodate as many people as possible. Each person's electrical situation is different, so if you have purchased an uncorded unit, you can find a power cord kit with part number 09008D at most retail stores or plumbing suppliers. For safety reasons, we do not recommend the use of an old power cord. If you require further help, feel free to contact us via https://support.insinkerator.com/app/ask. Thank you!

                    Just what we needed
                    Our old Badger 500 lasted at least 10 years but recently started making noise. Bought this newer replacement model which is a little shorter. This helped make the installation easier and also provided more space underneath.
