I purchased the GE GFC520 to replace a larger GE unit that lost a chopper blade. The GFC520 is a lower capacity (smaller chopping chamber) so takes up less space under the sink. It is also quieter than the larger GE model it replaced. It was easy to install, but I had to purchase plumbers putty. It would be easier if a small quantity of putty was included in the package.

1. noise--louder than expected 2. easy to install overall, the nut holding down the bottom plate is difficult to access--too small of an opening around the nut. 3. smaller inlet/throat than the previously installed model could use the previous strainer 4. different mounting--had to remove previous mounting brackets--which I thought were industry standard--at least I have seen the previous mounting brackets on all of the previous disposals that I have worked on. 5. the hole in the cover plate that holds the discharge tube on is too large or the flange on the discharge tube is too small--thus the discharge tube could gap and allow leakage. Added a plastic compression gasket which centered the metal opening and will keep it from leaking. This forced me to install longer bolts, since the ones supplied were not intended to have a gasket under the metal plate. 6. nice size, give a lot more room under the sink 7. space under the bottom plate for the electrical connections is not very generous overall good enough for the price I paid for it.

I bought this disposal to replace an old one and it works great!
Nice with a caveat
from Oklahoma City, OK, United States
Good news and bad. The good: It is quiet, powerful, and looks good. The bad: It is a disposer only, no cord, no cord hold down, no dishwasher connector. The worst bad is that the sink flange would not unscrew from the support ring. This should be a five second deal. It took over an hour. I used hot water to expand, ice to contract the other side, lubericant to facilitate the unscrewing. Finally, I gave up and put it in my vise and forced it. Of course it broke. I repurposed the broken part with the part from the old disposer. The sink flange was a bit buggered up but it is functional. Did I mention water leaks? If manufacturing would solve these problems it would be a much better disposer.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

We just installed our disposal today and it works great, but sounds like it's going to take off right out of our sink because it's so loud. Will need to remember not to use while the baby is sleeping.
Excellent for DIY project!
from Dayton, IN, United States
Instructions and illustrations for installation are concise, clear, and straight forward. My only adjustment was to complete the addition of an electrical cord, with plug, prior to mounting the unit to the underside of the sink, strictly for logistical purposes. I should have used a bit of dish soap, on the mounting ring, in order to have the mounting ring more readily lock into place, but, with a little extra effort, it was properly seated there are no water leaks! This will be my "go to" replacement choice from now on.
Have had it installed for about a month now and it has already sezied up and not working
