Rated 5 out of 5 by from replacement had a insinkerator 5 before and it started to leak 2 years later so I decided to replace with he same one and so far so good, the only thing I do not like is the warranty

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Does the job quietly This disposer does a good job and is much quieter than our previous disposer. The one thing we do not like is that this model does not come with a sound baffle which also helps keep things from accidentally falling down into the disposer. Without that it is pretty easy for something you drop into the sink to fall quickly into the disposer. We will probably add one to ours but we think this is something that should be included for safety reasons.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This is a great product Didn't know what to do when my old disposal started leaking. My son was staying with me so we went to see how much they were. Great price.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Badger 5 Easily installed...just remember to pop out the dishwasher drain plug. Otherwise, your dishwasher will not drain. Personally, that should be #1 on the installation directions.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from New Insinkerator Disposal works like a charm I love the quietness of my new Insinkerator. It seems to grind the waste quicker and more thoroughly also.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from This product is much quieter than my last one. The plumber installed the product in less than one hour and cleaned up some of the extra hoses that were not needed due to past owner installing a dishwasher by himself. I haven't used it every day, but when I do, it operates effeciently and quietly. I like the tool that was included to turn the blades or loosen something that gets caught.

how do i fix a water leak at the power cord location

Asked by: canja
Seal the opening around the power cord with a waterproof sealant. It's like Play-Dough, and is available in any hardware store.

Badger 5 leaks from the side

My Badger 5 is approximately 5 years old, and has developed a leak in the side of the unit, where the two parts of the plastic housing meet, and the leak only happens when the unit is turned on. There is no leak whatsoever when running water alone. The only fasteners I see on the unit itself are funny little plastic pieces, which I presume a user cannot tighten. Is there a remedy for this problem? It is used sparingly, and I am surprised it has developed a leak after such limited use. Many thanks for your input. Andrew Jones Port Moody, BC Canada
Asked by: AndyBC
Mark where the disposal is leaking. Pull the disposal and you find a fine crack in the plastic housinf fix with JB weld

can the existing power cord be re-used when replacing the same model disposal

my existing model 5-81A is leaking from the power cord, I am going to order a new model 5, do I need to order a new cord kit with it, or can I use the old cord on the new unit. My existing is a plug in, not a hard wire.
Asked by: Greg50
Due to the hook up on the Badger 5 I found that I was unable to reuse the cord from my other disposer. If yours is leaking from the cord I would suggest safety be your guideline and change it, it doesn't cost a lot.

Whats the life of a Badger 5?

My disposal started pouring from the bottom today. Model number is 5-81A and its only about 7 years old. Also what is good replacement?
Asked by: Chelsea
most of the units I have seem have rotted out on top of the housing that supports the motor shaft....it could also be the seal around the motor shaft....again most of the ones have rotted out because of the minerals in the water that attack that metal...
