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.

Rated 1 out of 5 by jonesma47 from Single Outlet SingleTop Air Switch Worked for a little over a year and then the module quit acknowledging the puff of air from the countertop switch. Positive that it is the module and not the air switch. Pretty sad when a product like this only last a little over a year (the warranty period)! Seriously.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Smedlap from Product stopped working after about a year. Disposal wouldn't turn OFF. Had to trip the circuit breaker. The internal electrical switch was sticking. Cheap product. Too expensive to break in a year. NOTE: Home Depot has a DO NOT SELL restriction on these. Insinkerator needs to provide replacements (or refunds, since I had to purchase a replacement).

Rated 1 out of 5 by M2054 from Second defective switch in less than 1 year I had this switch installed last November, had the first one replaced in June and now the second one is not working. The button internals fell apart on the first switch and now the outlet piece is frozen in the on position and will not turn off.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Oeyjay from Not buying any more of these... I am now on my 3rd "kit", even though the air actuated switch is the culprit. But at least I now have 2 extra push buttons and hoses. Why can you not buy these components separately? This is the last one I buy, especially since reviewing other reviews on the product. Very disappointing for a $60 purchase...

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.
