Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Badger 5 The Badger 5 is quiet, gets the job done in just a few seconds and takes up less room than the previous disposal.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product, semi-difficult to install in under the sink cabinet One installation trick is to use a car jack to raise the unit’s neck into the collar. Once in it works like a charm!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Same model as the old disposal unit Amazingly, this unit is the exact same model as the very old unit that finally rusted through internally. The old Badger 5 unit was already installed when I purchased my home in 1996, so was at least 22 years old. And this made installation very easy, nothing to redo or re-plumb.

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...
