Rated 4 out of 5 by from Easy installation I bought this to replace our current disposal (In-Sink-Erator), which was about 20 years old. The new Moen was easy to install and was a direct replacement. It was not as quite has we had hoped, but is still ok. Probably quieter than our previous disposal.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from somewhat disapointed I bought this product a little over a month ago and installed it a week later. Approximately 5 days ago the motor started acting up. Unit would run very slow if at all. After checking wall switch and outlet found unit was defective. I took the unit back to place of purchase and exchanged it for a new Moen disposal of same type. So far no problems but only time will tell. FYI, love all the other Moen products I have purchased in the past and have had no problems with them.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy to install Have only had this for a week, but I have no issues. Was easy to install and having the plug already installed was a plus. It came with all the necessary parts including a new drain ring and even a stopper. Definitely quieter than my old badger 5.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Looks nice...but... It is the weirdest disposal I've ever seen. The noise it makes sounds like gears shifting in a car, even when there is nothing in it. I can't tell from listening to it if it has "chewed up" anything that I've put in it, so eventually I simply shut it off and hope it's doing its job. I am 70 and sincerely doubt I'll ever get my husband to install another one, so it had better work!

I just installed one and when you first turn it on with nothing in it it makes a initial clicking noise when starting up is this normal?

Asked by: jim123
Hello jim123 and thank you for your interest in Moen products. The clicking noise that you are referring to are the impellers positioning on the turntable each time you turn the disposal on. Yes, this is completely normal for Moen’s GX Series 1/2 horsepower garbage disposal.

When I turn on my disposal, it just hums

Asked by: Richardsamson
Hello Richardsamson. From your description it sounds like the product may be jammed. To unjam the unit you first need to shut off its power. Depending on your model and wiring configuration you can unplug the power cord from the wall or turn the breaker box switch to the off position. Next, remove the stopper and/or splashguard. Check to see if the turntable will rotate freely by using a wooden broom or mop handle. Place the handle down the disposer and use one of the two impellers to put force on the turntable. Keep in mind it is not the impellers that need to be moving freely, you are just using the impellers to put force onto the turntable. If the turntable rotates freely, replace splashguard and check the reset button to see if it has been tripped. Push the button in until it clicks and remains depressed. If reset button has not been tripped, check for a short or broken wire connection to the disposer, electrical power switch, fuse box, or circuit breaker. If the wiring and electrical components are intact, the unit may have internal problems that require service or replacement. Let us know if you need more assistance with this. 1-800-BUY-MOEN.
