Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy Upgrade I've had this in for a month now, and I'm happy with its performance. It was an easy DIY install, and replaced a contractor grade competitor model that has been binding up for quite a while. I went from 1/3 to 1/2 hp, and with Moen quality expect it to last.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So far so good. Installed this 3 days ago. Was fairly easy except the snap ring was kind of tricky. Lightweight and quiet.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Old Sinkmaster gave out. This Moen GX50C was very close to the Sinkmaster that came with my house when I bought it in 1993. Moen's design was very similar with the same 1/2hp and cutting blades. I don't remember where I saw the "Installation Video" from Moen but it was very helpful in uninstalling the Sinkmaster and then installing the Moen. I have a bad habit of cussing when I install things out of frustration, but I didn't cuss once when installing this Garbage Disposer. Only complaint was the cord was not long enough at 2'7", I needed at least 3'9", so I made and extension cord out of an old computer cord. Moen should make a 4' to 6' cord. I hope the Disposer lasts as long as the old one, 27 plus years. I purchased this at Menard's during the 11% rebate time.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Grinds well We installed this garbage disposal a week ago. It works and grinds well. Installation was pretty easy. My biggest problem is that when it is turned on & water is running into the disposal, it will spit water back out into my face & glasses. I have to put a strainer over the hole so this won't happen. This should not be happening & it's bothersome

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy install, quiet Nice it came with a power cord and plug. Nice quality build, quiet. Snap ring easy to remove and install. Really hard to figure out what country it was made in. Not sure I really know.

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.
