This answer was rated:

Randy,
I have a Badger 1 disposal that has water running out of the bottom, what would cause this ?

Randy 43 :

Hello, my name is XXXXX XXXXX iam happy to help you with your question today..leaking right out of the disposal itself? not the plumbing connections?

Customer:

Yes, out of the disposal itself...(the bottom)... NOT the connections

Randy 43 :

that can only be from the internal seals inside the disposer itself or a crack in the body of it ,if that happens it needs replacement ,i dont think they have repair kits for those any more , i check my parts store and they are coming up as not available

Customer:

I figured as much, thanks anyway, will replace.

Randy 43 :

same price basically , not worth repair , good luck
