sorry to be so slow about getting back to you ,, our site is having problems today ,,,, is this bager 5 unit or a reg insinkerator
Customer: replied 8 years ago.
not a badger model I would guess it to be at lest ten years old
Expert:  Appliance Tech Larry replied 8 years ago.
you can go about this two ways and the first is to pull the unit out and rebuild it cause the inter seals are leaking and the water in running down though the windings and the motor and will cost up to around $200 for the parts OR you can replace the unit with a Bager 5 which is made by insinkerator for $95 to $130 and it comes with a warranty ,,,, if you like infor on rebuilding it you may let me know and i will try to help and if not i hope i helped you deceide / Larry
