Rated 5 out of 5 by from Replaced old Badger with.. a new Badger! After 12 years of hard labor and abuse our old Badger finally had enough. Actually the case cracked but the motor never failed. Seriously - this thing survived a ton of use with teenagers who rarely used any level of restraint in what they were shoving down the poor Badger's throat. The old Badger never complained. Only a few times did it kick in the safety (a good thing - it worked exactly as designed). When the old unit needed to be replaced it was a no-brainer to replace it with a new Badger. Installation was a breeze and we have had zero problems with the new unit. Couldn't be happier and will buy a Badger over and over again.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good Support Regrettably, this is a little of a mixed review. Purchased new unit late 2015 and it failed about 15 months later (internal seal). Although I no longer had my Lowe's receipt, Insinkerator honored the 2 year warranty off the serial number which is dated. I got lucky and only found this out with some research. Good news - honored warranty and sent new unit immediately. Bad news - had to use the warranty. Overall, it is about how you handle your mistakes and Insinkerator did a great job of that!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great disposal We previously had an InSinkErator Badger 5 disposal which broke down so needed to replace it. We replaced it with another Badger 5 disposal since we've had good service from the previous one.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Quick and easy to install Very quick and easy to install as replacement for identical unit. CAUTION: I should have read the instructions to remove the plug on the dishwasher connection. So I had to take it off to do that and fit it up again. That was easy.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Badger 5 Replaced leaking Badger 5 with larger HP one. Installation was relatively easy. Watched YouTube few times. I'm not exactly a handy person. Works well. It seems to me capacity of well is smaller even though larger HP.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very good product. I bought the Badger 5 as a replacement for a previous one that failed so it fit perfectly and was very easy to install. It came with every thing needed to install it and by being able to view the in sink drain coupling I was able to make better sense of the installation instructions.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works as advertised - after I removed the dishwasher plug Need more vivid instructions instruction on removing the dishwasher plug. Cost me a plumber to come out and fix.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from New Insinkerator We purchased a new home in 2004, everything was brand new. Our disposal started leaking, so my plumber friend told us to go buy an Insinkerator, it replaced the same one under our Kitchen Sink. We try to always buy the best quality, not necessarily the cheapest product. We are very happy with our new disposal.

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

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...
