Flywheels commonly fails after 5 or 6 years. The product worked well for about 6 years and then I noticed water in my custom cabinet coming from under the Insinkerator 500. The water did some damage and warped the wood. I researched the problem and found that a seal inside the unit (flywheel seal) very often fails allowing water to drain out of the bottom of the unit. It appears that this is a design flaw or possibly built in obsolescence since there are a great many blogs on this issue. I purchased another of the same and hopefully the company has corrected the problem. I am saving the old unit and will try to find a replacement seal to fix as a backup unit. No luck finding the seal so far. I find it odd that it does not show on the parts diagram... October 8, 2014
Watch out for rust-- We have had our Badger 1 for a while. We seldom used it much, because it seemed to jamb easily with things that should have been easy to grind. Now there is a worse problem. When investigating a water leak under the sink, we found that the Badger 1 has popped several rust holes in a line around the unit. It is spraying water, and has made a huge mess of our cabinets. You would think that a machine made to have water running through it would be designed not to fail this way. Calls to several plumbers have brought estimates of around $350 to replace the unit with another Badger 1. We are retired, and cannot afford this. We are also concerned about another Badger 1 having the same issue. We are NOT happy customers- and we've used ISE disposals for a very long time. I'm looking for alternatives--- September 19, 2014

@ Star Rating This disposal is noisier than my old one, and we don't like that it's so wide open that silverware easily falls into it far too often. Our old one had a more closed mouth than this one. January 23, 2014
Easy to Install and Reliable So Far This basic disposer was very easy to install and is performing well (light user). The only negative is the fact it does not come with an electrical cord - not a major issue since cords are easy to purchase but from my view it's lame that you have to purchase it separately.

This is a great product for the money. This is the second one I have purchased. I put one in our previous home, and when the disposal in our current home quit working, I knew exactly what I wanted to replace it with. It is very easy to install and works great. December 29, 2013
Perfect! No problems at all, even over the holidays with several people opperating the disposal. December 27, 2013
This is an excellent product. We have not had one problem with this disposal and would highly recommend it. December 27, 2013
