I got the same leak shortly after the 2-year warranty ran out. Great.... My last one lasted close to 20 years.

Unit leaked out the bottom
1 Star Review   By Scott on Home Depot - Jun 15, 2013   

I only wish I had done more research online prior to buying this. The noise level was fine, and quieter than the unit it replaced. It did an adequate job of handling fruits and vegetables, but it struggled to process vegetable peels. It did clog up a couple of times, eventually requiring my to remove the tailpiece to free the clog. But the bigger issue is that it developed a leak out the bottom of the unit. Fortunately, I saw this, and it did not saturate my kitchen cabinet. The leak developed after the two-year warranty had expired. I have rebuilt engines, etc., and so am a mechanically inclined guy. Thinking I could simply replace a seal, I researched this and was unhappy to see that the upper portion of the disposal is a one-piece, non-serviceable unit. The customer service rep's recommendation was simply to buy a replacement unit. I will replace this with a product with a better reputation and much longer warranty.

Industry standard
3 Star Review   By Topher on Home Depot - Jun 12, 2013   

I wasn't going to write a review, but when I read someone else's review that said they had water dripping out of the bottom of the unit where the wire housing is, I thought I better mention that that's what happened to mine. At least I got 9 years out of it, albeit light use as I'm a vegetarian and compost. I was just going to replace my old Badger with a new one to make installation easier, but now I think I'll look around a little more. Probably can't do much better for the price though.

5 Star Review   By pajarita80 on Home Depot - Jun 11, 2013

Badger 5 1/2 Hp
5 Star Review   By Bennetta on Home Depot - Jun 4, 2013   

This is an excellent product. I've had a Badger before (approx. 10 yrs. ago) and had to get it replaced. It was shipped on time as promised and I had it installed by a plumber.

Lasts until warranty expires
2 Star Review   By bill2007 on Home Depot - Jun 3, 2013   

This is my second (and last) Badger 5. Both died shortly after the warranty expires (2 yrs) They both started leaking out the bottom, which means it would cost more to repair than to just replace. You'd think a more expensive model would last longer. I may go with a cheaper one after this. If it dies after 2 yrs. I'm in the same boat...only I didn't spend so much on one.

Top Quality for a great price!
5 Star Review   By sharie on Home Depot - May 27, 2013   

My old disposal began to leak, and I called a repairman to fix it - a man who has also become a friend, and I appreciate his honesty. Phil said the inside of the disposal was leaking and it could be fixed - but for the cost of fixing it, I could get an excellent new one. He recommended this one and said it is a dependable workhorse. What better recommendation is that? I bought it and he installed it and it works perfectly!

This product has superior components.
5 Star Review   By Richyrich on Home Depot - May 21, 2013   

My last I.N.E Badger was a 1/3 horse power and It was a well working disposal that lasted ten long years of hard abuse, so I decided to purchase the I.N.E Badger 5 1/2 HP continuous Feed Garbage Disposer. The quick-mounting system is an excellent feature; in turn, making it the simplest garbage disposal I have ever installed. The Badger 5 1/2 chews up the toughest of food waste with ease. Do not spend extra money on those garbage disposal that claim to be quieter, because the I.N.E. 1 1/2 Badger disposal is not that loud.

Badger model 5-81, 1/2 hp
2 Star Review   By StAugustine on Home Depot - May 12, 2013   

Installed my 2-year warranty Badger in March of 2008, and it failed today 5/12/2013. I guess planned obsolence wins again. Pretty sure I'll replace it with a 4- or 5-year warranty model this go around. Maybe of a different brand. I think a disposer should last longer than this. The 1/3 hp unit that came new with the house lasted 8 years. Of note is the fact that this unit is only a dollar more today than it was in 2008.

Too loud!
1 Star Review   By Mesmu on Home Depot - May 7, 2013   

Had to take it back and purchase a quieter model. I was surprised at the quality, wasn't expecting that from an InSinkErator. Purchased another model, same brand... wonderful.... I guess in this case, you get what you pay for.

1 Star Review   By lobo on Home Depot - Apr 30, 2013   

In my 20-years at this address this is the 6th same brand disposal I've installed. I have such limited space under my sink I'm pretty much forced to buy this same piece of junk.

5 Star Review   By Walter11 on Home Depot - Apr 29, 2013   

So far so good on the Badger 5. It was recommended by a freind who replaced one last year. Istallation instructions were easy to understand and has worked good so far. I didn't buy it to put bones down the sink. I bought it to replace and old kenmore that has worked for 25 years. Can't beat it for the price.

Exact fit replacement for my existing 1/3 HP unit. This was a 1/2 HP unit. Existing plumbing was an exact fit as the local Home Depot assured me. I have very happy with the stores service and the fast shipping of the unit. It was very easy to purchase. Thank you.

Just a basic disposal
4 Star Review   By b1pig on Home Depot - Apr 9, 2013   

When we bought our, house in 2008, this same kind/brand disposal unit was mounted under the kitchen sink. In 2012, it started making the occasional grinding noise and finally froze up. I replaced it with this identical unit, mainly for a smooth transition. I'm still not sure how I feel about it. I realize that this thing is constantly wet and gets coated in some nasty stuff, but I can't imagine why something "designed" for this and only used occassionally over the course of 3-6 years locks up and fails. Thankfully, its not an excessively expensive item. Two months and ofcourse it works well. Its fairly easy to install, and in my case, very simple since the harware was already mounted/routed and all I had to do was swap the failed unit out. Regardless, its easy enough for "any man"... meaning it can be accomplished without refering to any "directions".

Quality Product
3 Star Review   By GA3035 on Home Depot - Apr 7, 2013   

Would be nice to keep the same design to make installation easier, instead of changing the drain spout attachment feature. I had to visit the hardware store in the middle of installation to buy a extension drain pipe. I replaced the same model older Badger disposal. I prefer the threaded drain pipe attachment instead of the flange plate type.

Inexpensive, mediocre, 4 years and leaks
3 Star Review   By BearBoy1 on Home Depot - Mar 31, 2013   

Worked well for four years and then started leaking out of the base, just like everybody else lately - thankfully, slow enough & found soon enough to prevent cabinet damange. Anybody else notice that the top reviews were in 2008 & 2009, since 2010 the experienced reviews are negative?

Replacing today after 14 years
4 Star Review   By Mike on Home Depot - Mar 17, 2013   

I'm going to opt for another Badger 5 today. I installed the first one 14 years ago when we built the house. It is now leaking at the bottom as noted in the other posts. I did make the mistake of breaking a large glass in the sink two days ago and noted that some of the glass made it into the disposal and I could not remove the small pieces. I'm thinking the glass may have cut an aging seal. I'm hopeful the new unit makes it the same duration as the last. I should note that we have a septic system and don't heavily use the disposal. We use it a few times a week, but not for heavy grinding...

Don't throw away the old "O" ring
3 Star Review   By James on Home Depot - Mar 15, 2013   

I purchased this because it was an exact replacement of the 5 year old one that came when they built out house. After 4 tries I compared the old "O" ring with the one that came in the box of the new one. It was obviously larger making it slip off when you tightened the screws. I installed it with the old "O" ring, no problem. Bottom line don't throw away the old ring. I would recommend this product only as an exact replacement and keep your old ring.

Good for price
4 Star Review   By Ross on Home Depot - Mar 13, 2013   

I replaced an old one that had rusted and was leaking. got the same brand but went up on the HP to 1/2. Install was easy only thing I was not expecting was I had to take the wiring off the old one and wire it up to the new one. This one was the biggest bang for my buck, everything in the store cost more.

Internal Leaks after 1 Year
1 Star Review   By Ltrick on Home Depot - Mar 9, 2013   

AVOID - Had this unit approximately one year and it's leaking out the bottom of the unit from an internal leak. Apparently this is common with this manufacturer/model as other reviews show the same. I learned my lesson....Goodbye Insinkerator!

Very pleased with this purchase
5 Star Review   By DIYnSAVE on Home Depot - Mar 5, 2013   

Purchased for 2 BR condo. The size was only available online but is exactly what we needed. The 1/3 seemed too small and the 3/4 was too big. Install was fairly easy. We replaced an existing unit but had a new sink, and had to modify the drain connection. Runs VERY quiet compared to the old one, which was also a Badger but older model.

A very durable and easy to install product
4 Star Review   By baldy on Home Depot - Feb 26, 2013   

The Badger 5 1/2 hp insinkerator is a great product and comes with good directions for installation. The only drawback is that it does not come with a new power cord. So one has to cannabalize the old disposal for its cord or go all the way back to the store and hunt for the replacement parts. I think it is a very serious oversite on the part of Badger. Otherwise, a great product.

Lasted longer than I expected
5 Star Review   By Wanda on Home Depot - Feb 18, 2013   

I purchased the Badger 5 1/2 horsepower approximately 9 years ago. It has served very well with regular usage. I have been very happy with it. I am now having to replace it. I am surely getting the same one. It was recommended to run ice in it every so often to clean it and to keep it in proper working order...(not sure if it helped). Had no orders and minimum to no jams.

Disposal has had a long life.
4 Star Review   By ThatoneguyinIdaho on Home Depot - Feb 9, 2013   

Lived in this house for 10 years and this is the first major problem I've had with this Badger 5. The seal between the disposal and sink is starting to go. The only other problem I've had is from a seized blade which really hasn't been a big deal. We've used it on a regular basis and I'll probably replace with another one.

Happy with the product!
5 Star Review   By bill on Home Depot - Jan 29, 2013   

I appreciated the easy installation, which was helped by the full, clear instructions. (I read the instructions three times before starting! No problems.) The quiet operation of the disposal unit is surprising! When this Badger 5 fails, I'll replace it with another #5.

This product has all the features I needed.
4 Star Review   By Regg on Home Depot - Jan 24, 2013   

This product had the correct disposal features for my kitchen and dishwasher waste that I was expecting. I had the same model and brand before and it seems to perform as well as my last one did. Also, I was able to use my same sink drain parts to connect the disposer to and did not have to replace them. This shortened my installation time.

Easy install
4 Star Review   By Tryder on Home Depot - Jan 22, 2013   

Took me about an hour to remove the old one and put this in. It had all the parts I needed (moved power cord from old unit). The last unit was the same model and lasted about 3 years (not great, but due to my wife putting hard stuff down the drain damaged it). I'm sure there are better out there, but the price was right and it fit nicely.

Better than the old one...
4 Star Review   By tkorose on Home Depot - Jan 22, 2013   

What can I say? It's a dosposal. It's much quieter than our last disposal, but I think that was from the 90's so I would hope that disposal technology has improved. It is quieter and efficient. Fairly easy to install. DON'T FORGET to remove the drain plug for the dishwasher. It will back up dirty water into your dishwasher, but it is an easy fix.

insinkerator badger garbage disposals
2 Star Review     

Strengths: easy to install

Weakness: will not last more than 1 or 2 years past warranty. they have them engineered to destruct. I own rentals, and these units are not cost efficient.

easy to install and replace, but I regret ever using them. once you have one, the easy change feature will almost force you to buy another; MUCH sooner than you would like.

Don't expect refund from Badger for product failure
1 Star Review   By jclapp7 on Home Depot - Jan 21, 2013   

I purchased a Badger for a condo renovation in August, 2012. The product consistently jammed and failed despite following the product guide directions for repair. The Badger jammed and failed just prior to Thanksgiving and clogged/overflowed the sink. I had to buy a new disposal and install myself to prepare for the family gathering. Badger refused to accept/pay for the returned disposer. Calls to customer service and manager were unsuccessful. Warranty doesn't provide repayment for product failure. Ridiculous.

No problems so far
4 Star Review   By DavidM on Home Depot - Jan 16, 2013   

I recently wrote a review on the Badger 5xp (1/2 hp), which I don't think HD sells anymore. I had the disposal for about 5 to 6 years. The other day it stopped working. I was upset that the unit quit so soon. As I was pulling out the unit, I inadvertantly hit a button on the bottom of the unit. Immediately I knew what it was. It was the reset button. I plugged in the unit and it worked fine. So far, I have not had issues that other reviewer have had and I am happy with the disposal; no leakage or cracked case.

Badger 5 1/2 HP finally failed after almost 7 years
5 Star Review   By Jonathan on Home Depot - Jan 10, 2013   

In my experience, we have had this product installed when we purchased our new home (March 2006 - almost 7 years ago). It has been through light use, knowing that what can be disposed of in the trash would extend the life of the product had it otherwise been used to process the discards. I plan on replacing the product with the same model. With the warranty set for two years, the unit failing at almost 7 years of age, and to purchase the same unit at well below $100, I'd say this unit is a great value for use for a family of three in a small condo. (But with any disposal, using them for only the most-foul discards and hand throwing everything else to the trash will save you money in the long run.)

You Get What You Pay For
2 Star Review   By Ektelonman on Home Depot - Jan 9, 2013   

For beginners, the unit was very easy to install, but the durability of the garbage disposais marginal at best. True, it does come with a 2 year warranty, and the unit should last past that time frame. Mine began to leak from the bottom after 3 years with average usage. The motor still seem to perform, but the leakage was not something that could be tolerated. Seems like this is a common problem with this unit and others along this same product line. I upgraded to an Evolution disposal, also made by InSinkErator. The good news is that the mount to the sink is the same so I saved a few steps with the installation by using the old mount bracket. It cost more but came and is quieter plus it had 2 grind stages, but also came with a 4 year warranty. For the price difference, and two additional years, it was worth the cost, and my time to install the unit.

5 Star Review   By lmg1950 on Home Depot - Jan 1, 2013   

Only problem I had was trying to hold it in place and turn the ring to secure it. Its a little heavy for me to hold with one hand. Had my daughter hold it while I turn the ring . Voila new disposal!!

Our old unit has lasted for many, many years, so I replaced with one just like it.
5 Star Review   By jetson on Home Depot - Dec 31, 2012   

Based on the long time our previous unit has lasted, and expected ease of installation, I selected the same type as replacement. Therefore I had no problems with fit of the plumbing. The instructions were very good and I had no problems at all during the installation.

5 Star Review   By Bear44 on Home Depot - Dec 31, 2012   

This product was a replacement for the same disposal that had been in service for over 12 years. The replacement time was less than 30 minutes and very simple to do. I highly recommend this product.

4 Star Review   By bejamin77 on Home Depot - Dec 19, 2012   

Taking out my old disposal was more difficult than this install. I was replacing the same unit so everything fit well. I left the top sink hole assembly in the sink crime the old disposal. that made installing even that more simple. keep in mind new unit have no power cord. if u don't have an old one to use you'll need to get one.

Each of previous 4 machines has performed very well. Easy to install.
4 Star Review   By wmeverts on Home Depot - Dec 18, 2012   

Our fourth purchase of this same machine over a 20-25 year period of time, average 7+ years on each machine before leaking from the side of the machine started (not from hoses). High expectations and pretty good results. We are not hard on disposers and follow the useage insrtuctions so we expect longer life. Family of nine now a family of two so we expect to go longer on this most recent purchase. Great price on this unit and easy to install.

Just replaced a 13 yr old Badger 1
5 Star Review   By BigGinkc on Home Depot - Dec 6, 2012   

Replaced a 13 yr old Badger 1. The new Badger 1 installed in minutes used old power cord and drain, It was so easy and so fast just snapped in, and the new disposal is very quiet I would never use anything else.

Guess you have to read the fine print!!
3 Star Review   By AzDan on Home Depot - Dec 4, 2012   

Was disappointed that the product arrived without the power plug being part of the product. KInd of like getting a toaster oven and having to use the power plug from the old one. Can't think that much is saved by the manufacturer...but it certainly puts a burden on the customer. ALSO... (although we caught it).... there should be a HUGE note/warning/heads-up...or something to ensure you take the dishwasher plug out if you have a dishwasher!! Other than that... it's installed, replacing the previous one that lasted 5 years. Hope this one does as well.

4 Star Review   By australianlifestyledesign on Home Depot - Dec 4, 2012   

This was a replacement model that i bought - my original 1/3 hp unit died just after its 6th birthday. i decided to replace it with the 1/2 hp model which is quieter, works well and was very easy to install. if i get another 6yrs out of this, for the money, i will be more than happy

Go with another maker
1 Star Review   By malamute on Home Depot - Dec 1, 2012   

Less than 5 years? Of very light usage. Really, InSinkerator? Thats pathetic. Leaks like a collander, and no way to repair it. I do like the added bonus of the water damage, though. Thats a nice touch. Do yourself a favour folks, go with just about any other manufacturer. Because these units aren't worth a dime.

Good disposal for the price.
4 Star Review   By lm700 on Home Depot - Nov 20, 2012   

It does what it should. It's a little loud and doesn't have much in terms of features, but it does the job it's supposed to. I replaced this after the one on my new home cracked. It was the same model and that one lasted for 19 years. Will it last a lifetime? Probably not, but 19 years seems pretty good to me considering the price. I looked at a few different retailers and Home Depot had the best price.

Good price and fast shipping
5 Star Review   By GneissGuy on Home Depot - Nov 20, 2012   

I replaced an identical disposal which I believe was installed when our cabin was built in 1998. The installation was easy, especially since I didn't have to remove and reinstall the sink attachment hardware. My only criticism is that the unit is quite loud, but it is in a mountain cabin and doesn't get used much. This unit is identical to the Badger 500 sold in the store for $20.00 more and shipping was free. What's not to like?

Excellent Purchase
5 Star Review   By MEMV on Home Depot - Nov 13, 2012   

By going online, I was able to review best disposer that would fulfill our needs, single home - 2 people. Found the right product, tips on installation and perfromance reviews which helped us 100% in selection. Went to the store to find it but same product not available. Bought it online and came perfectly and in very reasonable time frame! Excellent service overall!

Five years of use
3 Star Review   By Jerry on Home Depot - Nov 6, 2012   

Our Badger # 5 just started leaking. We got about five years of use out of it. Interesting, though, is that the on-line price is $77.63 and the in-store price is $99.96.
