Rated 1 out of 5 by from complete garbage ours stopped working in less than one year. real bad product
Date published: 2019-02-13
Rated 5 out of 5 by from it works! Just bought it today. I wish they would send a reminder a year from the purchase date to give an accurate review. I don't see why it won't continue to work great. Looking forward to many years of service out of this. Spent a little more on this one just because I don't really trust the other brand that was available. Regarding the install, I was straight forward. I like that most companies have adopted the universal 3 bolt installation for garbage disposals. I didn't even have to replace my sink collar which was nice because now I know there are no leaks. The slide collar was a bit difficult to slide into the locked position but a snug fit there is good.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Easy to install and is not ugly I have had this unit installed for only 5 days now and very happy with it so far. Probably too soon to give it a 5-star rating but no bad experience at this time. The registration process is simple and I love the 4-yr warranty.

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.
