A clog in the ISE. UNPLUG and look inside the top via the sink. If possible, run a small cleaning snake into the ISE drain and do what you can to clear the drain.
Count your sponges, etc to see if anything might have ended up in the ISE by mistake.

Water does not flow, it flows very slowly. even the motor does not work.


You need to use a plumbing snake to clean the drain from the output of the InSinkErator, just as you would clean a sink drain. On the bottom of the InSinkErator there will be a small button that will actually be a circuit breaker. This needs to be re-set by pushing it in. I would also get an appropriate size Allen wrench and insert it into the bottom of the ISE at the center. This will allow you to turn the ISE by hand and perhaps break up any debris that might be in the unit. DO ALL THIS WORK WITH THE UNIT UNPLUGGED!!!

I have a Badger insinkerator model 5Plus-7 which will not drain.


You have a glog in the p-pipe / drain pipe that is not allowing the water to pass and drain.

UNsermount sink with waste disposal


The easy mount disposal has a ring the (sort of) screws onto the insinkerator sink drain - the thing that is labeled insinkerator when you look down into the sink.

If this is a new install on a new sink, I recommend the EZ mount model. If there is already the sink drain (thing mentioned above) labeled insinkerator, you may be able to simply attach the new disposal to the existing drain ring.

Also: If you have a dishwasher to connect, this is a great time to install the "air gap valve" (available for almost free at any hardware store.)
