Rated 5 out of 5 by from Looks good, works good Old disposal quit working, purchased a Moen because of the company's reputation. So far it has been a great purchase. Works well and looks very nice.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from name brand works fine, was hoping it would be a little quieter than it is

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Happy so far... I bought this garbage disposal a couple of weeks ago after mine began leaking water. The previous disposal wasn't all that old and had a number of bothersome issues. By comparison, the Moen was within a dollar or so to upgrade to the 1/2 HP and offered a 3 yr warranty rather than only 2 yrs with the original brand. I love that I can now remove the rubber sink gasket in order to both clean it as well as the interior of the disposal. Food waste moves easily through the grinding process whereas the old model would often splash back if it was full. Also, finally, my father (83 yrs old) was able to easily install it for me. I feel I received a good product at a good value.

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.
