Question about Ace Hardware InSinkErator Badger 5, 1/2 HP Garbage Disposal

1 Answer

New Badger 5 insinkerator garbage disposal just installed 3/4 hp

I just installed this and followed the directions to a ''T'' however; when I turned it on the first time it started smoking!! The base of it gets pretty warm. I attached a power cord to it (according to directions) and I plug it into a wall outlet. The smoke is coming from inside the disposal, not the cord.

Sounds like disposal motor has overheated and shorted.
Fortunately today's disposals are fully contained, and did not cause fire.
Replace disposal.

Garbage disposle makes a humming noise when turned on. InSinkErator Badger 5, 1/2 HP Garbage Disposal


Did you also hear any clattering sounds when it started? If so, it is rotating. If not then this hum is the motor in the lock rotor stage. Did you place garbage in it yet? Always run cool water in it when starting it.
