Rated 1 out of 5 by Clogs continuously I installed this 4-6 years ago and had no problems until the last 1-2 years. I put almost nothing down this disposer as it continues to clog so often. September 10, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by After 6 years has developed a leak on bottom. Like the review dated 07/28/2014, Today my Badger 5 started to drip around the bottom. Have checked drain line and it is clear and disposal is running.Purchased this unit in July 2009 while renovating house and was installed by a Licensed Plumber. We use it a couple of times a day, on average.I am fixing to call the Plumber to see what needs to be done. This cost will be at least $80.00 Service Call, plus any parts or new unit.Unless you can suggest anything that I might safely checkout. August 26, 2014
Rated 2 out of 5 by Internal leak after only 6 years I have installed a Badger 5 in two houses in the past. The latest model has an internal leak causing water to drip constantly from the reset button area. This just started recently and luckily was found early. I could see this happening to an older or cheaper unit, but at only 6 years since install, it is a disappointment.I would like to stay within the same family of product, as the brackets and hose connections are all still perfectly clean and secure, showing no signs of leakage. However, if product failures occured this early on the Badger 5, I just don't know if I have faith in the other products. July 28, 2014
Rated 1 out of 5 by Alwaysd Clogging Up, Cost us $2,000 + so far Clogs up too easy, we baby the heck out of it and it continues to clog. I do not understand why the drain pipe is on the side of the container instead of the bottom.Used Drano over and over, it never works. Removed and nothing is in the side drain opening. July 27, 2014
Rated 2 out of 5 by Disappointed wih some aspects I am disappointed with this purchase. I bought this in May of 2014. Installation was not really a problem, but a little tedious. In the two months I have had it seems to have a hard time grinding the heartier fruits and vegetables. The noise it makes will change in pitch if something beefier goes in. It is noisy to begin with. It will also vibrate the entire sink as well. It freaks out when a kale stem or cauliflower trunk goes in. Even an orange, lemon, lime peel will send the grinder spastic. I am now cutting up my ALL stems, ends, and to cater to the Badger so it will be able to handle the simple task of grinding a few puny vegetable/fruit leftovers. I watched their little video they have posted online and it shows chicken bones being ground down.... I couldn't even dream of doing that with my Badger 5. I also see the retaining bolt holding the blades in place is rusting already too and remember It has only been in my sink for 2 months. I beats not having one but I should have spent the extra money and got a disposal with more power. July 19, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Quieter than older Badger 5 model I just replaced a Badger model 5-38 (burned out motor) that was installed prior to 1999, when I bought my home. I have no idea of its actual age, but it lasted.The Badger 5-84 was easy to install with no modifications required. And it is so much quieter than the old one. July 13, 2014
Rated 2 out of 5 by The Badger 5 , 1/2 horsepower is NOT built to last. Our Badger 5 was purchased 4 1/2 years ago. When we switch it on, it hums, but does not turn on its own. We checked it for a jam and the power is fine. I called customer service and was advised that the product needs to be replaced. I was told the warranty is for only 2 years and I need to purchase a new one. I will be purchasing the replacement from a different manufacturer. I do not want to make this purchase every 4 -5 years. July 12, 2014
Rated 2 out of 5 by Rusted after 8 years! My InSinkErator Badger 5 1/2HP model 5-81 is a rust bucket and at most it's 8 years old. Started leaking from the bottom. There is a lot of rust inside the unit and viewable from the output. The bottom plate doesn't have visible rust from the outside but the internals of the disposer sure does.Why not use metal that is more rust resistant, like aluminum? Avoid if you don't want a disposer that is designed to wear out after some years, even if the motor has low amount of 'miles' on it. July 10, 2014
