The seals are shot and it is probably a point at which it should be replaced since that particular brand doesn't have a great track record and is one typically installed in new homes for its low cost.

How can i tell how old my insinkerator is ?


Hello, W/D here.
Basically, I'd have to say that the date of manufacture isn't really important. The Badger InSinkErators can last a long time, or wear out in a short time. I have replaced a number of them. Some were still in warranty, and some were much older. I would look instead at the performance of the disposer. Check especially for leaks around the bottom, indicating worn seals or bearings, the most common serious problems. When this is the case, it is cheaper to replace the unit than to attempt a rebuild. If the disposer is leaking all the way through the disposer, it may be leaking through the wiring connection cavity, making a shock hazard a real possibility, so trip the breaker before investigating such a leak further.
Best regards, --W/D--

Badger 5 is leaking from bottom of unit... is this repairable? Thanks Chad


If it is leaking from the bottom and not from the top and running down the side then it is only repaiable by replacing the disposal, If it the top leaking and running down the side, then it can be rpaired by replacing the rubber gasket on the top.

Our 6 yr old badger 5 is leaking from the bottom. Can I fix it or do I get a new one?


Yes, you need to get a new one. Even trained InSinkErator repair personnel have told me the same. Their service call alone would pay for a new Badger and then some. You have actually done well for it to last a full 6 years.

Water leaks from two locations on my Badger 5, 1/2 hp disposal


These holes are probably due to wear, as they are at about the level of the cutter. In general, residential disposals are not repairable and once they begin to leak, they must be replaced. The Badger series is Insinkerator's budget line and probably has about a 5 year lifespan with normal use.
