Rated 5 out of 5 by from Well pleased with this InSinkErator. Was easy to install and is quieter than the one we had.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Easy Install Installed myself. Just remember if you have a dishwasher to "knock out" the plastic insert before hooking up the dishwasher hose! It's a little loud, but the price was right!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Eay to install Very easy to install in place of the old one. And the new one is so quiet!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good product for the price My Badger 5 needed to be replaced after 10 years. A hairline crack developed near the top and it started to leak. Because it had worked extremely well up until then, I decided to replace it with the exact same model. I found it on sale at Lowes. Good price at $75. It was easy to replace, all the hardware was the same and fit perfectly.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from junk Cheap plastic housing, no cord, makes noise. Short warranty and lots of reviews say the housing cracks easily.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works great! This was a one for one replacement -- matched the original. The old one was ten years old and making a lot a racket. By comparison, the new one was very quiet. I only gave three stars for "Innovation" because I have no idea how to rate innovation.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Solid disposal, easy install. I had to modify my drain system a little, but overall the disposal went in great. Insinkerator's instructions were very helpful. Make sure you get the wire kit for connecting to under sink outlet (if you have one). If there was one complaint it'd be how loud it is. Can literally feel it turn on from anywhere on my houses 1st level. But it gets the job done.

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...
