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.

This disposal is great! It is a small size, but very powerful! It is also surprisingly quiet! I love it and could not be happier with it!
from Indianapolis, IN, United States
My last disposal lasted 11 years. This is a different model than I had before. I have other GE products in my home and have been very happy with them. With my experience with other GE products I own, I believe this one will be reliable as well.

Once II figured out that I had a class in physics in college, I knew how to install it. So far so good. No leaks,.. Fingers crossed. Sounds good. Makes a really good and even rrrrrrr rrrrrrr sound. So, I like it. Three thumbs up.

I bought this to replace a 1/3hp InSinkErator Badger 1. The Badger was badly corroded from our very hard water. I installed the GE in a Corian molded sink and it's extremely quiet. I think a stainless sink would amplify the sound more than the Corian. I chose this model because it has a stainless grinding chamber instead of cast iron. I expect it to withstand the onslaught of hard water better than cast iron. On the down side, the rubber baffle does not allow the water to drain quickly. The inside diameter of the collar/flange for the discharge elbow was too big for the elbow and I had a small leak where the elbow contacts the disposer. I used my old elbow which fit perfectly with no leaks. Also, you'll want to lube the support ring, mounting ring and cushion mount so you can rotate/tighten these components more easily. I tightened the support ring on each of the two days following the initial installation. I think the plumbers putty compressed with time.

I was hesitant about installing this myself, but it was very easy. Plus, it's a lot more quite than my previous one.
Good fit and quiet
