SinkTop Switch - Single Outlet Satin Nickel is rated out of 5 by 22.
Rated 2 out of 5 by RubyRed from Can I just buy a new push button? Worked really well for about 5 months until the push button got stuck down. I tried blowing into the tube to free it but no luck. Is there a way to jut replace this part or do I need to but a whole new unit? I saw some reviews that said this happens "when it gets wet." - it's right next to the sink! Geez...

Rated 2 out of 5 by DAM1 from Cheap components The cheap plastic threaded collar that holds the push button broke rendering the unit useless. It couldn't cost more than a couple of bucks for this part but you can't get one. You have to buy a whole new unit for $60! Why not make the threaded collar out of metal to begin with because there is no way it could handle the fatigue of use over time? Will be looking for another companies switch assembly with better quality.

Rated 1 out of 5 by SteveW123 from Good Idea Poorly Built The switch has stopped working within ten months of being installed. Very difficult to access, so replacing it is difficult.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Larpv from Will not accomodate 2" thick countertops The specification and the installation instructions both state that the cylinder is long enough for 2" thick counter tops, and to order an extended cylinder if thicker. Actually, the standard cylinder is only long enough for about 1 3/8 or so. I, too, am surprised by the price of this unit (approx $60).

Rated 2 out of 5 by LindaKM from cheaply made part We like the ease of use and the look of this air switch, but recently it stopped working properly and we discovered that the threaded plastic cylinder (part of the air control transmitter/power module had cracked. And I can't find anyplace that sells this part. I don't want to have to replace the whole unit.

Rated 1 out of 5 by 941Contractor from Nice look, cheap design After owning the In Sinkerator air switch for a few months it began to jam under the outer ring and then eventually stopped working. You can turn it on but you can't turn it off! I will not be buying any more In Sinkerator products after this one. You should definitely get a lot more for the price!

Is this available with a longer shaft on the button?
If not, why not? Mine will not go through far enough to tighten. I have granite counter tops and an underhung sink, total thickness 1 3/4"
Westbrass makes an extended switch shaft compatible with insinkerator.

my sink top air switch button has stuck in the down/pressed-in position - unable to operate disposer - do you have a solution?
I have had this problem. I sprayed some WD-40 in there and it loosened up a bit. If that doesn't work, remove the cover and pull up the button with some needle nose pliers. Then clean out the gap with a Q-tip and some household cleaner. When using the button, don't press it down very far to activate the switch. Good luck.

Can this be used with a hardwired disposal?
My insinkerator disposal is hardwired into my house electrical. In order to use this switch do I have to install a plug on the disposal and then install an outlet under the sink, or is there another way to wire this up?
Hi, this is Jerica from InSinkErator Customer Service. You are correct; the disposer needs to be electrically connected using a power cord to be plugged to the InSinkErator SinkTop Switch’s power module. For the InSinkErator SinkTop Switch’s power module, it also needs to be plugged to a wall outlet for it to work. If you need further assistance, you may reply to this thread or call the InSinkErator AnswerLine at 1 (800) 558-5700. Thank you.
