SinkTop Switch - Single Outlet Satin Nickel is rated out of 5 by 18.
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!

Rated 5 out of 5 by JSquireJ from all great Bought the Excel, the plug and the sink top button. All work great with low vibration and low noise. In for a month or so - no problems. Insinkerator staff very helpful and professional answering questions. Have tow other Insikertaors, Premium model, all work fine for over 2 years now with no problems.

Rated 2 out of 5 by HouTX from Flimsy at best Had the single outlet sink top switch installed about a year ago in a soapstone countertop. Button regularly became wedged beneath outer ring. Finally the threaded piece with button cracked and fell through the bottom. Shouldnt break so easily.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Sammy68 from Great idea, not so great quality I installed the kit two years ago and it was pretty straight forward. The most difficult part was screwing the nut onto the bottom of the button assembly under the sink. The kit comes with a white, a nickel and a chrome button so that you can match the finish to your faucet. I used the chrome button. Within two months, the chrome ring had separated from the plastic button assembly and fallen off. The ring is glued on, not mechanically attached. I used epoxy to reattach it and it hasn't fallen off again yet. Recently, the switch unit stopped working reliably. It now turns the garbage disposal on but not always off, requiring a trip under the sink to unplug it. Disappointing.

Rated 1 out of 5 by RubberMD from Installing third switch in three years Brand new kitchen with brand new garbage disposal. Third switch in three years. This is not consistent with Insinkerator quality or reputation.

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.
