Questions & Answers

What happens when the lights burn out?

Asked by CMS4925 February 5, 2019
5
Answers

I'm not exactly sure what happens when the light burns out, but I'd start with the batteries and see if they are out of energy. If not the batteries, i'd call MOEN or visit their website and I'm sure you can order a new one. Moen is pretty good at supplying parts from my past experiences. Good luck to you.

What’s the purpose for the batteries?

Asked by Anthony February 14, 2020
5
Answers

The batteries supply the LED lights and nothing else. There, is no option for the LED lights to be plugged in, they need the batteries.

How loud (or quiet) is this unit?

Asked by Happyhomeowner May 1, 2019
3
Answers

How loud something is, is a subjective question. What I think is quiet may drive you nuts. It is quieter than the 23 year old, 1/2 hp Emerson I removed. You can add acoustic tile to your cabinet if you think it is too loud, I just turn down my hearing aide when something or somebody is too loud.

Answers

stainless steel is a high nickel content alloy, corrosion resistant lower carbon steel and galvanize is a corrosion resistant coating for carbon steel. ss costs more. But galvanize is a very durable material, look at all the gray colored metal buckets, they are galvanized steel and they are last a long time.

I have an Insinkerator Badger currently installed. Will this fit as a replacement?

Asked by Tes July 15, 2019
3
Answers

Yes, with the attached express ring (provided on the unit), just remove the old unit, re-wire and attach the MOEN. There is no need to remove the sink ring, which save lots of time.

Can this garbage disposal be ised with a Septic system?

Asked by Homebuilder August 16, 2020
2
Answers

It can be, sure - it’s just an appliance. But it’s generally recommended to not use a disposer with septic as regular use could overload the septic system, not to mention that some things you might run down a disposer aren’t handled well by septic.

If you currently have a InSinkErator model that is leaking from the bottom and needs replacing, this is your Disposal! 10-year warranty - It is around $10 more than the InSinkErator model with only a 9-year warranty. This has been the 3rd disposal in a 10 year period at our house. The previous units have been the InSinkErator Badger Models. Over time, they kept leaking from the bottom due the metal parts that rust over time. This unit directly replaces the InSinkErator and uses the same below the sink coupling. This makes the install very easy without the need to remove the sink ring and disposal housing from the sink. The motion detected light is a cool feature, but it had NO part in my decision process. I am hoping that the better, all stainless steel construction, of the MOEN unit and MOEN Brand name will be worth the $10 over the 10-year time period and not rust out, if it does, I am good for the next 10 years. The only other unit you may consider is the the Waste King. They have a 20 year warranty and use non-rusting parts in the whole construction, but the install is much harder since the sink coupling is different and has to be replaced to mate with the Waste King. Looking at the Wast King website and support pages, they might also be owned by MOEN.

Easy to install; I read a review that said installer used car jack to hold disposal in place to connect and that trick worked like a charm. The wife love to light so that's a bonus. I like the tapered bottom which give a little more space an view. I replaced another brand that had a 3 year warranty and lasted 5 years. This one cost more with a better warranty and is a little quieter but pricey in my opinion.

Seeds Program Review
(What's this)
Needed to replace my 18+ year old garbage disposal since it was on its last leg. I choice the Moen EX Series 1-HP Continuous Feed Garbage Disposal with Integrated Lighting for the horse power and the brand name. The unit is more streamlined design and a bit longer than the other brands. Installation was pretty simple. The instructions were straight forward and very simple to read and install. Make sure you purchase plumber putty to put on the sink flange. It comes with a Simple Snap Tool to put on the snap ring. It really makes it simpler to install the snap ring. One issue I had was the way our drain is plumbed I could not position the disposal so the motion detector for the light would point straight forward as recommended. It is probably 30 degrees off so you have to open the right cabinet door to activate the lights. If I open the left it does not active it. The lights are on the side and back of the disposal so even at that angle it still lights up the entire cabinet. When I turned it on, I was surprise how quite it was compared to my old. It grinded very quickly that is good to save on power and water. My old one would take forever. So far, I am very satisfied with the product. It has a 10-year warranty.

(What's this)
Moen EX series 1-HP continuous feed garbage disposal is excellent. The functionality is amazing. The integrated lighting feature is a little flimsy and not really useful. The light works with four AA batteries which Moen includes in the package. I didn't find it useful so I left it off the garbage disposal unit, it was very easy to remove with on screw and two snap on clips. As for the garbage disposal itself the installation was straight forward. It includes all the hardware necessary for installation. Its not bulky and it looks sleek. I'm happy with this garbage disposal and its functionality.

Seeds Program Review
(What's this)
Difficult to install, but otherwise quite nice... I replaced a 28-year-old KitchenAid disposer with this Moen. Installation was straightforward until I got to the step where you hold the disposer up against the sink while simultaneously turning the locking ring. I swore at this for more than four hours before I finally got all three of the ring lugs to engage the flange ramps. The problem is the design that has the ring compress the rubber gasket as it pushes against the bottom of the sink. This force means you must simultaneously push up hard on the ring, at all three tab positions, while turning it. Even when I finally got it, I was unable to rotate the ring all the way to where the tabs sit in "detents" on the flange, no matter how much leverage I used. I hope it stays. It didn't help that you had to have the disposer exactly centered, with nothing to guide you. The KitchenAid it replaced had a different gasket design that self-centered and didn't push back on the ring. It baffles me that Moen calls out the mount design as easing installation, as I found it did exactly the opposite. (By the way, I discovered later that Home Depot sells some tools specifically designed to make disposer installs easier, though I don't think they would have helped me.) I used a scissor jack to hold the disposer up while I struggled with the locking ring. Moen does include a nifty tool for easing installation of the snap ring that keeps the flange from dropping off the sink, but that's never been a difficult part of the job for me. Ok, now that it's installed, how does it work? Just fine. This is the 1HP model (as was the old KA) and it makes short work of whatever you toss at it. A usefully stiff rubber guard is supplied, as is a drain stopper. Noise level is moderate - the old KA was quieter, but I've heard worse. An unusual feature of the EX series is the "integrated lighting". A motion sensor triggers when you open the cabinet doors, and a series of LEDs on the back side illuminate for 30 seconds or so. The ring with the sensor and lights can be rotated - you want the sensor facing the doors, which makes the lights illuminate the back of the cabinet - perhaps not a bad choice. Four AA batteries are supplied for the lights.
