    I have a Badger 5-84. One day something metal starting bouncing around loudly. I did a cursory fishing around and realized it must be small as I couldn't find it. Finally, it jammed the impeller plate and the unit would just hum, so I stopped using it and put off dealing with it. Now I'm...

    Academic question, I worked around it and it's fine now. But I was replacing an old Badger GD with a not-as-old Badger Insinkerator, and where I was expecting to find a split snap ring on the flange, there was a solid ring, with no splits. I have no idea how to get that off so I can replace the...

    My old garbage disposal had a crack in the casing and eventually stopped working. It was hardwired to the electric cable coming from under the sink. The new garbage disposal had a plug attached. I didn't want to cut off the plug and hardwire it so I decided to install an outlet under the sink...

    So I replaced my mom's garbage disposal taking care to connect the wires in the new unit the same way as they were in the 20 year old Sears unit that it replaced. It ran fine for three weeks and then just quit. I got a hum out of it, that's all. Pressing the reset didn't help. The unit spun...

    My garbage disposal is leaking. It's an in-sink erator brand and it is leaking in the middle of the unit. When i look at it, the water is coming out of the part that connects the bottom part (i'm assuming this is the motor) and the top part which connects to the sink. i ran both the faucet and...

    I just changed the gasket (splash guard) on my ISE disposer. When I plugged it back in, it started running. Wall switch has no effect. I had to unplug it to turn it "off". What happened? Thanks, Mitch
