In Sink Erator leaks half way down


1) Copy following link for troubleshoot and replacement tips.

2) Insinkerator usually has 5 year warranty.
If unit is leaking, then replace with new disposal.
Waste King disposals have longer warranty, but local hardware sells Insinkerator/Badger for less.

Garbage disposal does not work


1) Copy following link for instructions manuals and parts sellers.
http://waterheatertimer.org/How-to-repair-and-install-Garbage-disposal.html

2) Parts and motors are not available for all brands.
Waste king has long warranty.
Other brands have 1-5 year warranty.

3) Check outlet has 80% rated voltage

4) Motor start capacitor might be out if you can get it to run by rotating the cutter disk. Otherwise the motor or wiring is probably is bad.

5) Recommend installing new disposal if old one is older than 4-5 years. Because the insides will rust away from constant exposure to moisture.

In sink erator leaking at bottom by electrical connection


I don't think it can be fixed by anyone other than the factory. I wanted to find a parts list so I could buy a seal that goes above the motor housing (which is where i think the problem really is) and repair it myself. I wish I had better news but since the leak is small and the motor still works, I'm going to keep a bucket beneath it and periodically empty it as recommended by a previous contributor.
