Rated 5 out of 5 by from overall pretty good I replaced like disposal after 5 years. I thought that was kind of a short lifespan. The splash guard deteriorated and the grinding action seemed to lessen quite a bit.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Quiet and Powerful I had a Badger 1 which was installed in my house when it was new. The Badger 1 did its job well and lasted 17 years. My new Badger 5 is clearly more powerful and is definitely quieter in operation. The Badger 5 quickly handles anything I put into it. One could not ask for a garbage disposer to do more. Careful shopping on the Internet allowed me to purchase my Badger 5 at an excellent price which made it even more of a value. I successfully installed the Badger 5 by myself which is not bad for a 76-year-old.guy. The Badger 5 is a great product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from EasyInstallation Well priced, Easy to install . Purchased this model because my previous one was the same make and lasted 15 years

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Badger 5 Well, it works, and I was able to install it. I can't say it was easy. No very clear instruction. Luckily I had exactly same model before, so all I had to do is follow the same steps as I did when I uninstall the old one. New Badger 5 sold without the power cord. I had to uninstall power cord from old one and install it to the new one. Hey it cost $100, I guess for that money you may provide a power cord with it. Nowhere on the box (that the only thing you can see in the store) it tells that there is no power cord inside and you have to buy it separately.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from It's just okay Go for a more powerful model horse-power wise. This unit is okay, but will only last about 5 years or 2 tenants under "normal" use. I've installed over ten of them at an apartment complex. They're the economic unit that just barely does the job, but for your home or heavy cooking, get a more powerful model. They clog a little more easily than other models, but they are easy to install, and service as needed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy to install and Very Quiet Easy to read instructions.Very easy to installed. I replaced another InSinkErator with the Badger. It was completely jammed.. The old unit was very easy to remove, did it all by myself. Easy to read instructions. Very easy to installed and hook up.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Unit operates as it is supposed to and is quiet I had to replace the previous replacement unit because if failed after 6 months of use for unknown reasons and was under warranty. I installed the replacement unit as seems to be working well now.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from updated garbage disposal We had one for five years. It got clogged & damaged. Removed it and installed a new one. Quiet and efficient! Hope it lasts as long! Installation only took a few minutes due to a handy man husband!

I have a model 5-86A. When I turn it on I hear a hum but nothing happens. I've tried the reset button but that didn't help. Still just a hum.

Answer: 
Hi, this is Jerica from InSinkErator® Customer Service. The Pro 333 disposer has been replaced with the new Contractor 333 model which is mostly available through plumbing supply houses. You may opt to replace your Pro 333 with a Badger 5XP or Badger 5 as these models also have the same plumbing requirements. If you have questions, please do not hesitate to contact us through [email protected] or call InSinkErator AnswerLine at 1 (800) 558-5700. Thank you.

Answers

Answer: 
Hi, this is Jerica from InSinkErator® Customer Service. The direct replacement of a Badger 5 Plus-5 is the Badger 5XP model. As all current Badger disposers have the same plumbing requirements, you may replace your Badger 5 Plus-5 with any Badger models. All current Badger disposers have a discharge outlet secured with metal flange and bolts. If your Badger 5 Plus-5 has a threaded elbow discharge pipe, then the tailpipe provided with any Badger disposers should line up with your current plumbing. If you have a threaded straight pipe type application, then you will need an additional 5/8" for the straight tube. If you have questions, please do not hesitate to contact us through [email protected] or call InSinkErator AnswerLine at 1 (800) 558-5700. Thank you.
