My insinkerator Badger 5 plus 5 is leaking from the bottom plate

I install the unit about 5-6 years ago it is now leaking from a silver plate at the bottom of the unit. It looks like I can remove the plate and maybe install a gasker of some sort not sure it will work. Or do I replace the unit. This is my second unit I never had to replace the first one, I moved to a new house. I have the same problem with my Badger 5 plus. I checked out one of those do it yourself books and determined that there is a gasket that could be replaced. I'm going to remove the unit, take it apart, and see if i can get to the gasket to replace it. I'll let you know what i find.

    I can't find a parts list anywhere on-line for the Badger 5 Plus model 7A. Has anyone found one? I want to replace the gasket between the motor housing unit and the upper half.

    Well, I can't find a parts list to attempt a repair so I'm going to use the ol' bucket beneath the sink method for a while until I get sick of the work around and get a new one. I just hate to replace it when the motor works perfectly.

How does the bottom plate come off a badger garbage disposal


Hi, the only plate that should be removed on the bottom is for wiring the power cord to the unit. If there is water leaking, specifically from the bottom of the unit, it's leaking through the enClosure assembly which is not serviceable. If the unit isn't that old it might just be leaking from the sink flange or mounting gasket at the top of the unit which at times can be difficult to detect. Or possibly the gaskets at the drain assembly for the unit. Hope this helps ;)

My Badger 5 InsinkErator garbage disposal leaks out of the seam about midway down the unit. I don't know how old it is as it came with the house I bought 3.5 years ago. Is it something I can fix?


if the inner seal is leaking -- it is best just to go and buy a new garbage disposal and install it.
normally when the seals start to go bad in the units it does start to effect other parts of the disposal,, and it is kinda a domino effect.
