how hard are these to install? we don't have one, so it would be a new install, not a replacement.

they usually don't. most alliances don't come with the power cord. the cords are universal so a lot of people buying a range, fridge, etc are replacing their existing unit and already have the cord.

That makes sense. I never really looked down there. I just looked and it's not a detachable cord.(as in it comes out from the Insinkerator disposal's side)

We had a Badger installed by the builder of our house and after about 6 years the case rusted, cracked, and started leaking. It's a pretty common complaint with these. Price is good, but don't expect great lifetime.

Nope, not readily detachable like most printer/computer/monitor cables are. It's essentially hard-wired. Most disposals have a cover there where the wire enters, that you pop off (phillips screw), then you undo the white/black wire nuts which are connecting the cord to the disposal wiring. Green ground is typically connected to a grounding screw. Loosen the cable clamp, pull out the power cord. Remove the cable clamp, reinstall everything in the new disposal.

The majority of disposals made today have a plastic body. Over 90% of the disposals I replace, have developed leaks/cracks there at the body. People grinding up stuff like small bones and other hard items, which eats away the inside. Motor still working great. Used to be I could get new bodies for a reasonable price, last couple years it's about as expensive as a new disposal.

I almost never use mine, so it's probably all rusted up inside. It now only makes a buzzing sound when I turn on the switch. The brand is "Badger" and it was put in by the building of the house.

I've tried just about everything and couldn't turn it.(with every trick I've seen on YouTube) Should I just give up and get the $59 one from Lowe's?

Thanks!

Also have a Badger originally installed when house was built 25 years ago. No problems with it so far.

Yup, this is the baseline model, installed in hundreds of thousands of newly-built homes. Works well for a handful of years, then cracks/leaks/rusts and needs to be replaced. Replacing an existing one, like for like is a piece of cake. Installing a new one where none existed before is a plumbing job. Wiring it isn't too terribly difficult. Ground, hot, and neutral. Be certain you turn off the breaker before working on it!!

Are you sure nothing is lodged in it? Mine had a small stainless measuring cup fall into it which I didn't see so when I turned it on it got lodged and prevented the disposal from turning. When I turned on the disposal it would only hum (motor turned on but it couldn't turn because the cup was wedged). I had to take it apart and pry out the measuring cup but it works again. I didn't have to disconnect any wires but I did turn off the breaker just in case. Loosened it from the sink so it could drop down and I could easily work with it.

Did you use the supplied wrench to turn it from the bottom?

Yes, I am a landlord and typically there is a manual reverse turn on the bottom that will help dislodge things. You would be amazed what people put down a garbage disposal. 😳

Really easy to install even for new installations. Look at YouTube, a lot of tutorials.
