Rated 5 out of 5 by from Pretty quick for a reasonable price Replaced an old disposer with this one. Reasonably quiet and powerful for a modest price compared to fancier models. Only had for two months but very happy with the purchase.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from seems good so far It's only been in for a month. So far so good. I need to be with this disposal for a few years. If it breaks in the next few...thumbs down. If not....thumbs up!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Installation was easy. Because I was replacing an older, well worn InSinkErator, I was able to simply screw on the new motor onto the old sink drain ring. Thant really made for an easier installation!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from All you need Nice quality, easy installation. All a single-family residence needs. A little louder than I expected from a new disposal.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product This garbage disposal is so much quieter than my old one, which also was a Badger. So far so good, quality is excellent.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from one minor installation hitch I had to replace disposals and was planning on doing it myself, so I just ordered another Badger. After 1 or 2 youtube videos and a quick review of the printed instructions I began. Everything went AMAZINGLY smooth (including the electrical part) and then it happened. The new disposal wouldn't screw on. After 45 minutes of trying, swearing and screaming I called a friend who had just done this successfully. Got her voicemail. So then I called customer service. Apparently, it is a very simple fix. You just need to pop the gasket off and reset it on the top of the Badger...people call with this problem all the time. Well, if people have this problem ALL THE TIME - WHY ISN'T IT ON THE FAQ? or Troubleshooting? or Tips and Installation hints of the instructions? After resetting the gasket, the install was complete in under 5 minutes.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My last one lasted for over 25 years. I am a do it yourself person. Been that way my entire life and I just turned 74. I have in my home for 25 years and the disposal was here at the time of purchase. With this type of service why would anyone buy a different brand.

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...
