4.0 out of 5 stars Waste King does the job, September 12, 2009
This review is from: Waste King L-1001 Legend Series 1/2 HP Continuous Feed Operation Garbage Disposer (Tools & Home Improvement)
This was my first disposal installation. The online video was much better than written instruction booklet. Check Waste King's website for it. My old disposal was hard-wired. My mistake was trying to remove included cable to hard-wire the new disposal. It was impossible to get the power cable out of rubber stopper after I had dismantled it from unit.. I should have cut the cable and pigtailed it to house power inside a junction box under sink. Instead, I needed to get a strain relief connector to add to unit (parts only cost $3-4, already had plumber's putty). Wiring and plumbing were the most basic possible.
Disposer worked right away. It is quieter than old unit. I would buy this unit again without hesitation especially considering the 5-yr in-home warranty.

I had the same problem, the old unit was direct wired. Instead of trying to direct wire the new one, I cut the wire to the old one (after tripping the breaker, of course) and installed a new outlet box under the sink. If I have to change out this new unit some day, it will be very simple to connect the new wiring. Just plug it in.

How did you hard-wire it? I'd rather not have to install a new outlet box. Unless installing an outlet box is easy. How do you do that? I already have a hard wire running down there coming from a switch above the sink to turn on the garbage disposal

If you can hard wire a disposal then you can install an outlet. It's just a wire on each side, a wire around the ground nut and it screws right into an outlet box to give it some protection.
