Garbage Disposal Replacement


Our Insinkerator 17 has died and I am considering replacement with a cheaper model Are the fitting locations on garbage disposals common or will I have to repipe things?

Re: Garbage Disposal Replacement


Yes, most are pretty standard. But cheap and easy even if you need a few adjustments.

Re: Garbage Disposal Replacement


Just discovered that when the switch on the photo is depressed, the unit runs, when released, stops.

Re: Garbage Disposal Replacement


Insinkerator said there were no parts available and that I should buy a new one. As the thing runs just fine with the switch in the photo held down with a rubber band, we're just using like an ordinary one and controlling with the wall switch.
