How to Dismantle an Under the Sink Garbage Disposal


Full user manual for this here. Cleaning it etc.
Don't think you would destroy the seal if you are careful. Sure you could get a spare if you did from their answerline at top of manual.

Badger 5-81 motor buzzing, blades spinning, won't grind


Replace the whole thing. They are not that expensive and are easy to replace. The issue could be bad motor part or the shaft came loose from the grinding disk.

Yes, the fit is pretty universal, and the circuit supplying power to the badger should be sufficient for the new one, which draws 10 amps. But you should take a look at the dimensions on the sheet at this link to confirm that you have space for it.

Attaching dishwasher drain hose.


Are you talking about the "barbed attachment" on the disposal? If so, simply use a screwdriver and hammer to knock it out. Make sure you reach into the disposal (through the sink) to get this piece of plastic out after. Good luck

I have an Insinkerator Badger 5 garbage disposal that is about 4 years old. It has started leaking water from the very bottom right from the electrical connection. Do I need a new unit or is this something...


Press a piece of chewing gum in the leaking area--and if that doesn't do the trick --which it wont of course Throw the darn thing away--buy a Evolution Elite by Insinklerator--pretty quiet about $200.00 though--worth it..
