My In Sink Erator Pro 333 leaks where motor attaches to grinder
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.

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.

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.
