How do I connect a badger airbrush hose to a Airbrush Depot TC20T compressor?

Airbrush Depot compressor should be a 1.4NPT which is the most common- Badger makes an adapter for this size to their hose fitting. That fitting should be available from many sources. Badger did/does use a couple of sizes so make sure you know which model of brush you have. is the is at the bottom of the page.

If nothing else, it should be available through Walthers

Generally speaking, a household disposal is a household disposal. The Badger is, IIRC, the same as the Kenmore, and several other brands. No, you won't have to change pipes. The pipes are the same. The only difference will be the power requirements.

I have a badger 5 insinkrator gone bad--can it be replaced easily with the badger5 xp or should I stick with the badger 5???I believe the xp is 3/4 vs 1/2 maybe a problem--

you should not have a problem going with the ' 5xp ' model badger vs. the regular badger 5 --- everything pretty much mounts the same and the hose outlet is the same size,, so it will install in minutes. it is build stronger and will last a lot longer -- for the extra money it is a good choice.

We are getting granite and a new sink. I have the Badger 5 disposal. While removing it--the bolt was on way too tight--a picle of the bolt broke off and is inside still attached. Is there anything I...

I'm not sure what bolt you are talking about.
The sink strainer attaches to bottom of sink with 3 bolts.
If bolts breaks, you can substitute ordinary 1/4" hex bolt.

If a bolt is broken off inside something metal, then you can drill a small hole in the broken bolt.
Then remove bolt using a screw extractor available hardware or auto parts store.
You can drill out the bolt, and then re-thread the hole.
I suggest you take the part in question to hardware store.
I used to work hardware/home-center, and those guys can get eyes on the job and offer best solution.

Why is my badger .5 plus in sink erator leaking

One of your connections is either broken or missing a rubber gasket or a hose clamp. You have a lock ring on the top that basically bolts to the drain of the sink which is part of the disposal, IT has a rubber gasket or two on it, some have plumbers putty on the very top, the hose that goes from the dishwasher, if you have one, has a hose clamp on it, the drain line into the trap is a compression fit, needs to be tight, and it is usually bolted or screwed into the disposal itself with a rubber gasket. Check these out and tighten them up. Hope this helps.

The motor on my Badger 5 disposal was humming but not rotating. I cleaned out all the debris, reset it and now there's nothing - no hum, nothing. Is my badger dead?

The badger 5 has a dislodge device on the bottom right in the very center. An allen wrench will fit if you have lost the tool that came with it.

FIrts you will need to dislodge anything preventing it from turning. (Insert the right size allen wrench and turn both directions) The remove whatever comes loose after dislodging.

Then opush the red reset button on the bottom. Check the breaker that powers up the disposal, as you may have tripped it.

If the breaker is on, the unit is turning freely, and the reset button is pushed, then the next step is to check for power using a volt meter, to make sure the disposal is indeed getting power. If all the above has been done, the unit IS getting power then yes, the disposal needs to be replaced.

How do I remove unit from sink?

hi there first you need to get it cleaned out the best you can so you can see inside the disposer look at the verry middle of the disposal there you will see a bolt that needs to be removed it may be a special kind of bolt so just be prepared for that most hardware stores also sell a tool to help remove the bold and blade ...l after that bolt is removed you should be able to remove the blades than undo the pipes that are connected to it and any bolts and nuts ect ect. than pull out the unit if there is any silicone that seaoled the unit in it will be kind of hard but not impossiable to remove ok.

Water leaks from two locations on my Badger 5, 1/2 hp disposal

These holes are probably due to wear, as they are at about the level of the cutter. In general, residential disposals are not repairable and once they begin to leak, they must be replaced. The Badger series is Insinkerator's budget line and probably has about a 5 year lifespan with normal use.
