Question about Ace Hardware InSinkErator Badger 5, 1/2 HP Garbage Disposal
Posted by Anonymous on
Roto rooter the drain pipe in the wall. It's plugged. The water goes up the vent pipe to the roof that's why the water comes back in the sink when you shut off the disposer.

SOURCE: GE disposal won't drain
It sounds to me like the knock out plug leading from the disposal has never been removed. Remove the drain like and you may find that there is a thin plastic wall preventing any water from leaving the disposal. Just place a small screwdriver in the opening up against the plastic barrier and tap it out with a hammer. good luck

SOURCE: garbage disposal doesn't drain
Sometimes what happens is that when they install a garbage disposal the pipe coming out of it ends up being lower than the pipe exiting the pea trap thru the wall under the sink. If it is a dual kitchen sink this is very common. Being lower than the exiting pipe causes water to stay in the bottom of the disposal and not just the pea trap. If you have a side by side sink in the kitchen and the water is backing up in the other sink also then more than likely the pea trap has a blockage. It is not common for the straight line from the pea trap going thru the wall to become blocked, but it does sometimes happen. The biggest cause of this is poring hot grease down the drain. It is just about the point that it cools enough, sticks and hardens plugging the drain pipe.
You probably should have a plumber look at it and make sure everything is running downhill under the sink. The only place that water should set in the plumbing is in the pea trap so that odor from the sewer does not come up into the house. Without actually seeing it, it is hard to tell exactly what is happening. The pea trap is easy to clean, put a really big pan under the trap, make sure you have emptied as much water out of the sink as you can, then with a big pair of channel locks unscrew the two nuts that hold the pea trap in place and let the fluid drain from it, then finish unscrewing it from the pipe. You can then clean it out and check the pipe thru the wall for blockage. When reassembling it, screw it all together loosely and then move the pieces around while hand tightening each joint so the they have no pressure on them, then use the channel locks to finish tightening the nuts. Don't over tighten them because they have nylon seals in them that compress to make the seal. Just tight enough to seal and not leak. You should be up and running again unless the plug-up is farther down the wall pipe. Good Luck, RAC

Sounds like the unit is fine but I think you have a plugged drain.Put an empty bucket under the trap and take it apart.Next remove the tailpiece from the disposal and clean it out.If everything is clean and you can't find the clog you will need a drain snake to remove the clog in the drain pipe.Good luck.

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.

Properly piped, your arrangment should look similar to this picture so that there is a separate trap for the disposal and the other sink basin.
