Rated 5 out of 5 by from Direct fit for the replacement The last non-Moen unit lasted 14 years... this should last much longer.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Quieter than disposal it replaced Install was painless with good instructions. It is quieter than previous disposals we had. It’s more of a muffled sound.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Easy Install I've had the disposal installed for a couple months now, everything works as designed. Installation was easy, Moen did a great job of walking me through the process.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good value The disposal in the house was a Badger 5 that was leaking and quite corroded when I took it out. Not sure how long it had been in service, as it was in the house when we purchased it 3 1/2 years ago. I went cheap initially with a Waste King, so called EZ install, based on good reviews. It installed OK without leak on initial testing, but leaked when the disposal is on. Removed and tried again, with same result. I came to the conclusion that that the so called EZ install design must be the problem (more apt to vibrate/move at the sink flange) and returned it. I went with Moen GX50C due to reputation and namely the traditional 3 bolt design as being more reliable. Grant you, I believe Moen is the parent company for Waste King (Think Toyota vs Lexus). 1/2hp is adequate for most household with mild use. The install is easy and it works well with no leak. The design says stainless steel, which is a plus, for the grinding mechanism, better than galvanized steel which is more likely to corrode eventually. Also the (in home) warranty is 4 years, better than the comparable 2 years on other disposals. The sound is as expected for any disposal (not really quiet, but not deafening loud). I am pleased with it and would purchase again. I just finished the installation today. Time will tell as to durability. I was going to get initially another Badger, but the design on the 1/2hp is galvanized steel and the power cord is optional. I did not want to mess with hard wiring. The Moen GX 50C is a much better value. If you have a large household and require heavy disposal usage, consider a higher model (3/4 or 1hp).

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.
