How do you disassemble the Badger5 1/2 horsepower sink erator.model #5-81


The badger has two parts:
1) The sink strainer basket that attaches to sink with three screws visible from below.
2) The disposal which connects to sink basket with connector ring.
There is a rubber washer between disposal and sink basket

geno_3245_218.jpg

If you drop disposal loose from the sink, you can get spoons and other stuff out.
The disposal itself does not come apart for repairs.

I wrote tips for replacing disposal, which include information you might be able to use:

When I worked apartment maintenance, we replaced disposal with same brand disposal.
That way we didn't have to change out sink basket or move pipes around under the sink.
How to: Disconnect 2 nuts on p-trap and trap falls loose.
Rotate steel connector disk that holds disposal to sink basket, and disposal comes off.
Before installing new disposal.
Attach electric wire to new disposal, and push in reset button.
Attach dishwasher tube to new disposal. Knock out plug inside dishwasher opening.
Push new disposal up into place, and attach to old sink basket.
There is a rubber washer between disposal and sink basket, use new washer.
Attachment ring catches at three points, all three have to connect.
You can use bottle jack to lift disposal if you have problem.
Re-assemble tubular pipe.

If this is your home, you want new sink basket that comes with new disposal because it looks shiny and new.
Buy a tub of plumbers putty also.
Remove old sink basket and clean sink opening.
Put finger-size roll of plumbers putty around sink opening, and then push new strainer basket into plumbers putty.
Tighten basket from below, wipe away excess putty around sink opening.
Install new disposal as described above.

Tips for tubular pipes:
When taking apart tubular pipes, start at p-trap and take apart as few pieces as needed to do job.
On image below, loosen both upper and lower nuts, trap falls loose, and then work on disposal.
Any tubular drain pipe that gets moved while working under sink needs to be disassembled, cleaned and re-assembled.
Metal pipes have rubber washer >> always use new rubber washers.
Plastic pipes have plastic washers > plastic washers can be cleaned and re-used.
Plastic washers have flat side that goes toward nut, tapered side away from nut.

geno_3245_219.jpg

When reassembling tubular pipe, we use rectorseal on washers and joints.
Slap a good amount on washer just before pushing washer in place and attaching nut.
Rectorseal will ensure tubular drain pipes won't leak.

Garbage Disposal is about 2-1/2 years old It is now no longer grinding up potato peels and clog every time! HELP--do we need a new one!!!


1/2 horsepower is the lighter weight model, and if you use it heavily, then it will not work like before.
Another thing to consider is whether the water is draining away completely while you're cutting.
If water and potato peels are both present, your p-trap and tubular drain may need to be cleaned.

While using our garbage disposal this afternoon, it went from grinding to humming. The blades do move freely, but the plate is very loose and tips. Is it possible to tighten the plate?


There is no way to tighten plate that I know of.
Maybe a clever welder could stick it back together, but the problem implies something underneath is rusted out or broken. The main thing is the cutter plate, and if disposal wobbles, it will loosen drain pipes under sink and cause dripping.

I wrote some tips for installing new disposal, and include them here since disposal will be replaced at some point.

I put too much carrot skins down the disposal , the blades turn but the water will not drain


You have to take apart the tubular drain pipes located under sink.
It will be fun.

Here's some do-it-yourself information to save calling plumber.
Take apart tubular pipes and clean them out.
Take a photo of the drain before starting. Take other photo as needed for facebook.
Once pipes are apart, run water or use coat hanger to clean out disposal.
Not necessary to take disposal out.

1) Tubular pipes connect to disposal.
Each tubular pipe has a nut and washer.
Pipes can be metal with rubber washer.
Pipes can be plastic with plastic washer.

geno_3245_90.jpg


2) Tubular pipes come apart with channels locks
geno_3245_91.jpg

3) You need a bucket to catch the water when you take apart tubular pipes.
Keep towel handy.

4) All tubular pipes that get moved while working under sink have to be taken apart, cleaned and re-assembled. All you do is take them apart, clean them out, clean them up, and re-assemble the same way they came apart.

5) Take a photo of the drain assembly before starting. Always start with the P-trap shown image above. Loosen top nut and lift up nut. Next, loosen tubular pipe that connects to disposal. and see it can lift out of P-trap without moving any of the other pipes. If clog is inside p-trap, then p-trap will have to come off. Try not to move any other drain pipes; any drain pipe that gets moved will start to leak and needs to be taken apart, cleaned and re-assembled.

6) For best results:
After clog is removed,
Clean all tubular pipes and washers before re-assembly. Take photos as you go so you know where each part goes.
Plastic washers are re-used.
Flat part of plastic washer fits against nut, tapered part away from nut.
Rubber washers can be re-used depending on age >> new rubber washers are best.

7) To re-seal tubular pipes first-time every-time, use rectorseal on rubber or plastic washers.
As you are re-assembling, smear healthy amount over entire washer and then tighten the nut.
Wipe off excess on outside of pipe.

Slim-Twin washer does not start


I've been researching this model a little bit, I think there are 2 fuses inside, but I dont know where. If I have to take mine apart, I'll let you know.. Did the machine ever run, or did you just get it. Is there 2 cords to your machine a 220 cord and a 110 cord, or does the washer just run off the 220, but your washer doesn't work, so you dont really know, but if it has two cords, could you let me know, so I can find the end of mine ha..thanks chuck

Clanking noise during spin cycle


I was told by 3 technicians that my washer had shot bearings and this is a common problem for the Kenmore Elite Front loader.

Sears knows it and will not do anything about it except try to sell you a new washer since it costs $800 to replace the unit with the bearings.
