SinkTop Switch - Single Outlet Satin Nickel is rated out of 5 by 36.
Rated 1 out of 5 by Debbijo from Look nice, but doesn't last long. Exactly 3 yrs then switch goes out. Now I see why it was discontinued. Now I have to find replacement and pay handyman to install new one. In the meantime I pulled hose from sink switch and if you blow hard enough, you can get power switch to come on. Then blow again to turn off. I leave it wrapped over pipe under sink and do this until I find some to replace.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Tessyts from Water damage under sink in new cabinet. Found water & WATER DAMAGE under NEW sink, in NEW cabinet that we've had less than 3 months. Crawled under sink with flashlight, took pics and video showing the water, the damage and where it seems to be coming from, Insinkerator model STS-SOSN. Called the 1-800 number on the back of Insinkerator plug in. I explained the situation, gave the model number, said we've had it less than 3 months. I was put on hold and this is when I went online and learned of the recall. When he returned he acted like he was doing me a saying that this was "very unusual that this happened BUT they'd send out a one time, free of charge, Duel Outlet Swtich replacement." Then I asked about the recall and he claimed he didn't know which ones were recalled.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Homeownerinor from Black thread part broke within a year. Looks like a very common story. How can you continue to sell such a poorly performing part. Is there a way to get just the poorly made threaded button part without baying $65 for the whole unit? Is there a viable option from another manufacturer?

Rated 1 out of 5 by tbell83 from Stopped working after 2 months I bought this switch off Amazon and was initially very pleased with the ease of installation and the functionality. However after only two months the unit stopped working and I have resorted to crwaling under the sink to plug/unplug the disposal whenever I need to run it. For something so simple that costs nearly $50 I would expect a much higher quality product.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Chris1510 from Failed to work after a year Same problem many other have had. After a little over a year - switch doesn't work. Will not turn on or off disposal. Have to plug and unplug every time want to use it. Have called plumber to fix, but sounds like that isn't the solution. Have always had wonderful luck with all Insinkerator products till now.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Marv243 from Overpriced and doesn't work Bought this switch and a kitchen tap at Home Depot to install with new cupboards......After installing switch it would not shut off.....Checked hose and left switch sit for a couple days still wouldn't work...... Went back to Home Depot to get another switch and they no longer carry them.......After reading all the negative reviews I can see why

Rated 4 out of 5 by Fuller101 from I’m a journeyman plumber & have installed hundreds of these! Recently bought a brand new home and finally broke down and put one in my house, no problems yet but concerned after driving to 3 Lowe’s & 3 Home Depot’s as I was trying to hook up my neighbor with one of his own! Finally asked a store employee why the shortage & that’s when I was informed of the “recall” I really like the convenience of this product yet what do I have to do to save myself from product failure & my neighbor is still on board As long as there is a fix for this problem...

Rated 1 out of 5 by JoeGAnderson from Do not buy this switch until they have improved longevity / performance. I too am very unhappy with the performance of this on / off switch. I had it replaced after one year (through my home warranty) and then again after a short four mounts the switch failed to work (sticks and will not turn on / off the disposal. Home Depot will not carry, Lowes is waiting for your next generation switch. In the mean time I crawl under the sink to manually plug / unplug. Very disappointing.

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.

SinkTop Switch full of water
Over the holidays, we discovered the Insinkerator single-outlet SinkTop Switch on our Evolution contained water (likely from dishwashing) and no longer turns on the disposal. When depressed, a small amount of water will shoot out of the top. Also, when depressed I hear a clicking noise at the plug-in device in the wall outlet, but nothing else. The disposal does not respond. I've tried un-plugging, checked the circuit breaker and the GFI's, but so far it still does not respond. It's been over a week now and water is no longer in it. Both are 16 months old. What do you think it is and what options do I have to repair?
I HAD A SIMILAR PROBLEM IN THAT THE SWITCH JUST STOPPED OPERATING, AND I THOUGHT I COULD HEAR FLUID WHEN I PRESSED THE BUTTON. I DETACHED THE AIR HOSE FROM THE POWER MODULE, PRESSED THE BUTTON SEVERAL TIMES TO "CLEAR" THE HOSE LINE, AND THEN REATTACHED THE HOSE TO THE POWER MODULE. SWITCH BEGAN TO OPERATE NORMALLY AGAIN. WE'LL SEE IF THAT LASTS.
