Rated 5 out of 5 by from Seems to be working as expected We put in ourselves. Was difficult. Saved $$ and hoping that there will not be a next time for a long time.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Stopped functioning after very little use. Bought a new build with a brand new Badger 5 installed. Worked great for a few weeks but out of nowhere it started to make that unfortunate motor whine and refused to move. There was no stuck food or clogs, Blades spin fine with the allen wrench, motor is just shot. Hopefully the warranty process is smooth so I can adjust this review.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Seems to be working fine The product is fine so far. However, it was missing the Allen wrench that U.S. to be used if the disposal jams.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from It works!! I turn it on, it grinds and gets rid of the food. I turn it off. It does exactly what I want it to do. Would be more impressed if it cut the lawn or washed my car but hey, it does the job I bought it for so thanks for that!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice disposal A little more powerful than the Badger 1. Easy to install. A little noisy but no different than the Badger 1 and grinds much faster than the 1 also.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from maybe this one will have better longevity. Replaced a Badger ! with this Badger 5. First one lasted 5 years before it rusted through and water ran into bottom of unit shorting out the motor and flooding the sink cabinet. Unfortunately, no other brand was available locally and I could not wait for one to be shipped. Can only hope this one lasts longer. Also have added a pan underneath in case it doesn't!

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...
