1) Copy following link for troubleshoot and replacement tips.

2) Insinkerator usually has 5 year warranty.
If unit is leaking, then replace with new disposal.
Waste King disposals have longer warranty, but local hardware sells Insinkerator/Badger for less.

SOURCE: water leaking by discharge tube

All you need to do is tighten the two screws on the discharge pipe (right on the side of disposal.) There is a gasket that needs tightening under the pipe fitting.

SOURCE: in sink erator leaking at bottom by electrical connection

I don't think it can be fixed by anyone other than the factory. I wanted to find a parts list so I could buy a seal that goes above the motor housing (which is where i think the problem really is) and repair it myself. I wish I had better news but since the leak is small and the motor still works, I'm going to keep a bucket beneath it and periodically empty it as recommended by a previous contributor.

SOURCE: In sink erator is leaking from bottom

I had this happen right before my disposal stopped working completely. Mine was leaking from the same place. The one I had was a 2 year Badger. They are easy to replace. If yours still works I would keep using it and just sit a pan down below to catch water. A new Badger 1 year cost $80 at Home Depot. If you get one, do not worry about buying extra gaskets or the black sink strainer thing because the new one will come with everything needed except for the plumbers putty. You will need plumbers putty. Good Luck

The unit's seals have failed. The metal piece covers the box where the cord is wired to the motor, meaning the motor above it is already soaked with nasty water. It's definitely your best value replace the disposer. If you get another insinkerator or one made by insinkerator (whirlpool, kenmore, etc) you can hook up the new one in three easy steps.

Motor just hums,grinder wedges are free, no leaks apparent,motor turns free in both directions.


yes there is start capacitor on each motor, connected to start winding.
There are two windings on each motor: start winding and run winding.
Both windings receive power at same time. If the start winding is bad, or capacitor is bad, then motor hums as the run winding receives power but there is not enough torque to get the motor rotating.
If motor is humming instead of rotating, then quickly the motor overheats and looses speed after repair or melts and fails.
The problem with disposal repair is getting the thing apart... finding replacement capacitor, or replacement parts, and then reassembling without a leak.

I have an in-sink-erator model 1-81 which is leaking from the power cord attachment area and from a small rectangular metal piece mounted on the bottom of the unit. Replace or repair and is this possible?

Dismantle Emerson insink erator


There is a retainer ring that holds the drain and the Insinkerator together. You loosened the drain with the 4 screws. You need to rotate the retainer ring counterclockwise when looking up from the bottom. Maybe 45 degrees and it will come loose. BE CAREFUL IT WILL WANT TO FALL!!
