Rated 4 out of 5 by from Light weight and easy to install. Just installed it in a matter of an hour and that was going slow. Had to go and get some new plumber's putty as what I had had gotten stiff and somewhat crumbly. My installation was under a corner sink and thus limited arm/movement room.

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.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Easy to install Only had it a day but it seems to be a decent product. Only big negative is that it a lot noisier than the previous one we had. Real annoying.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Disposer with Some Really Wierd Sounds We bought this disposer to replace our In-Sink-Erator that dies after 4 years of very light use. The new Moen appears to be encased in a lot of insulation. The ring and the stopper are very attractive. The best part was the attached electric cord which made it very easy for our plumber to install. The only thing about this disposer, which is a little disconcerting is the loud noise that it makes, even with the insulation which our old disposer didn't have. It sounds like a jet engine getting ready for take off! But it gets rid of the waste!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from name brand works fine, was hoping it would be a little quieter than it is
Date published: 2018-10-02
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.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Replaced my garbage disposal. I bought this GX50C garbage disposal to replace one that started leaking. The instructions were easy to follow and I was able to reuse the existing flange and drains, which made the job pretty simple.

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.
