Questions & Answers


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

Asked by jrs September 25, 2016

mine is 16 years old and never had a problem with it in which I had the house built so I am the original owner

After 1 year, my InSinkErator Badger 500 is not working. It is not clogged and just "humms" so I know it has electric.

Asked by Brent May 18, 2016

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.

Where is the reset button?

Asked by angel April 20, 2020

I’m hoping there is a reset button for the bagger 500 where is it located?

If i am replacing a badger 5 with this 500, can i reuse the existing mounting ring and drain assembly?

Asked by Doug August 19, 2016

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 September 27, 2012

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.

if the disposal is locked up and not working will this affect my dishwasher?

Asked by cindy April 19, 2020

If your dish washer drain is connected to the disposal, there's the potential for waste water to back up into the sink; and possibly over flow the sink.

Is there an electrical cord included?

Asked by DebRA January 3, 2018

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 or call InSinkErator AnswerLine at 1 (800) 558-5700. Thank you.

Do you do installation for this product

Asked by Randy December 14, 2017


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 August 6, 2016

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!

I just bought the Badger 500 and need to register it but I cannot find the place to do it at?

Good, easy to install but with an caveat
Features :
Energy efficiency :
I was shopping for a new garbage disposal and this one had great reviews so I gave it a shot. It was an easy install since my old one was the same brand. So after a day, I noticed my dishwasher wasn’t draining anymore. I thought it was weird, but since it is an old dishwasher, I did all the troubleshooting on the dishwasher and found no issues. I thought it was very coincidental that dishwasher had issues around the same time I installed the new garbage disposal. So I went back to check it out and to my surprise, the hole for the dishwasher drain hose was plugged, as you can see in the picture. Nowhere in the instructions says that hole is plugged. To avoid having to return the thing, I just drilled the hole myself and now it is working as intended. I guess there must have been a quality control issue. Just make sure that whole isn’t plugged before installing to save the aggravation. Other than that, great product!

Easy to install with included instructions. This product replaced same model from over 10 years ago. New disposal was shorter in length but all connections for pipe, dishwasher hose, and electrical were the same.

Requires Halex 3/8 in. Cable Clamp
Features :
Energy efficiency :
If you're buying the Badger 900 3/4 HP Continuous Feed disposal without the power cord, be sure to pick up a 5-pack of Halex 3/8 in. Twin-Screw Cable Clamp Connectors while you're at the store. The disposal requires one but does not say so on this product page or on the box. It was an annoying trip back to the store for $1.87 bag of clamps. Not sure why they can't just include one with the product. Other than that caveat, I think that the Badger 900 3/4 HP Continuous Feed disposal is a good product. The installation instructions are clear and the Home Depot has an excellent walkthrough on YouTube which basically sold me on the disposal to start with. Installation followed the YouTube walkthrough exactly, except for the Cable Clamp issue and the fact that my p-trap disintegrated when I took the old disposal off. The Badger 900 is a fraction quieter than the Insinkerator that I replaced. The previous Insinkerator had been working fine since before we bought the house a decade ago, but just started leaking from the bottom and needed replacement. I'm anticipating a decent lifespan out of this one. If I hadn't had to run back to the store for the clamps and PVC, installation would've taken about an hour and a half and I'm probably a 3 out of 10 on the home-handyman competency scale. This was my first time doing an electrical + plumbing replacement and it was pretty easy overall. Also purchased: Halex 3/8" Cable Clamp (pack of 5, needed 1) Bag of assorted wire nuts 1-1/2" PVC Trap adapter Everbuilt 1-1/2" P-Trap Kit Everbuilt 1-1/2" Slip Joint Drain Tailpiece Extension Tube Everbuilt 1-1/2 in.

The hole for the dishwasher discharge was completely seal, I had to drill a hole on the In SinkErator to be able to drain the water from the dishwasher.

Leaking after just three years
Features :
Energy efficiency :
I bought this garbage disposal in 8/2017. It started seizing up after two years, requiring a turn from an allen wrench to make it work again. Then it started rusting. It started leaking out the bottom recently (from multiple points) but I didn't realize until yesterday, so the bottom shelf of my cabinet got damaged. I will replace it with a different brand tomorrow.

Customer review from logo
I’ve owned many Insinkerator garbage disposals through the years. Each time, for whatever reason I have to buy a new one, I always thoroughly research the various brands available and always come back to Insinkerator. The Insinkerator name is synonymous with garbage disposal systems for good reason - they are fast and efficient, they last a long time (about 12 years), they are well made, and they are pretty easy to install.

My plumber recommended it and I picked up to have it ready for his visit. My plumber's apprentice removed the existing unit (which had been leaking). Then he opened the Badger 500 carton that I had purchased the previous day. The only problem was that someone had already replaced the unit that I purchased, with a used one, and apparently resealed and returned a used the Badger 500. My plumber had his apprentice reinstall the old unit, advised me to replace the unit I had just purchased, and made an appointment to come back the next day. I returned it to my local Home Depot store where the staff heard my tale of woe and exchanged the product. My plumber returned the next day and completed the installation. He quickly removed the old disposal unit, and then installed the new one. I was only charged for one unit and one plumbing trip. So, "All's well that ends well!"

Super easy install! Put my lady muscles to the test and it was awesome! A few you tube videos and I attached the power cable and installed the new disposal. If I can do it, you can too!
