This basic disposer was very easy to install and is performing well (light user). The only negative is the fact it does not come with an electrical cord - not a major issue since cords are easy to purchase but from my view it's lame that you have to purchase it separately.

The product worked well for about 6 years and then I noticed water in my custom cabinet coming from under the Insinkerator 500. The water did some damage and warped the wood. I researched the problem and found that a seal inside the unit (flywheel seal) very often fails allowing water to drain out of the bottom of the unit. It appears that this is a design flaw or possibly built in obsolescence since there are a great many blogs on this issue. I purchased another of the same and hopefully the company has corrected the problem. I am saving the old unit and will try to find a replacement seal to fix as a backup unit. No luck finding the seal so far. I find it odd that it does not show on the parts diagram...

Insinkerator Perfect fit

By Jaimie

from Wisconsin, USA

Comments about ACE HARDWARE InSinkErator Badger 5 1/2HP Disposal (BADGER5):

The Badger is a tough and compact garbage disposal. It is quite quiet compared to my previous (other manufacturer) one. It was professionally installed, so no real comment of installation or innovation. It grinds and it works. It sounds sturdy and has done everything we have thrown down it.

We installed our new Insinkerator with our new sink and countertop. It works very well and takes care of all the vegetable waste that goes down the drain, just as advertised. It was really a 'plug and play' installation.

Comments about ACE HARDWARE InSinkErator Badger 5 1/2HP Disposal (BADGER5):

Actually it is a Badger 5. Just after the 2-yr warranty on the previous unit - same model - expired it developed a noise that the technician diagnosed as a bearing failure and could not be repaired. If the new unit fails I hope it does so while still in warranty.

      I replaced a 9 year old identical model and noticed the new one is much lighter, the rotating parts on the top looser and much louder in operation. Sounds very flimsy but time will tell if it lasts as long as the original.

        Comments about ACE HARDWARE InSinkErator Badger 5 1/2HP Disposal (BADGER5):

        I replaced my 10 year old Insinkerator with this new one. It is much quieter and chops up waste food better. Wife loves it. Installation was a bit challenging only because the heavy weight of the new unit makes it difficult to lift it in position with one hand, while attempting to lock it into place with the other. I solved the problem by using my car's jack. It worked like a charm.

        Comments about ACE HARDWARE InSinkErator Badger 5 1/2HP Disposal (BADGER5):

        No issues. Maybe not top of the line, but works fine. We're not really heavy users of the garbage disposal. I do have questions about what is okay to put in the garbage disposal, one surprise from an article my wife sent me was that coffee grounds are not supposed to be put down the disposal. There were probably a couple of others too.

        Air-Powered Sink Top Switch

        By RobthePoet

        from Alexandria, VA, USA

        Comments about ACE HARDWARE InSinkErator Badger 5 1/2HP Disposal (BADGER5):

        Air-powered Sink Top Switch is okay but it is not good for the hearing-impaired or deaf residents who cannot hear the noise while the button turned on or off. I make a good suggestion for you to make new green light button inside the air-powered Sink Top Switch. Press the air-powered button green light on and then press that button off so that it stops. That will be a new product for the deaf residents. Smile.

                  I've installed about 5 of these disposals, in different places all over the US, in the past 30 or so years. They're easy afford, easy to install, and they work like the dickens. I wanted to install the higher horsepower version this time around, since all the connections fit, but I realized the kitchen is so small the longer casing wouldn't fit under the sink and around the pipes. No matter. I know I'll get good service out of this one.

                  Not too large for one person to handle while trying to install under sink. The light weight helps while trying to get it lined up with the drain.

This unit quickly takes care of food waste. It is so quiet that I have to remind others to turn it off. I would recommend this brand to anyone that is in the market for a new dispoal
