We moved into our house in October 2019. The disposal stopped working several times. Had to keep breaking it loose with a heron handle. They sent a replacement in March 2020.

Not sure it's working

Keith 9366 1/21/2020

This garbage disposal was installed in a new construction home I purchased a few months ago. I'm not sure if it's working properly. I mentioned it to the contractor on our 30-day punch list but haven't had a response yet. Water drains slowly and it sound like something is wrong.

juani311 1/7/2020

I really liked this unit because it's affordability and how convenient it fits in my sink. On 5 years of use the only proble was the wear of the disc, so I replaced it with a new unit of the same.

Product works well and is very quiet. Old one had a larger opening and water/food would be sucked in as soon as you turned it on, this one does not, you need to push larger pieces in but not a big problem.

Easier to buy another one

Busted Flat in Louisiana 9/15/2019

Admittedly, I don't know how to fix this disposal when the spinning grinders decide to break through and come loose. This is the THIRD GFC525V I have bought in recent years. The last one I purchased in 2017 or so. The same breakdown occurred with the second one as with the first one - the grinders came loose, and unit was useless. It's easier for me to just replace the unit below the neck than it is to buy another brand and have to try to dislodge and re-putty the holder in the sink. BUT, these grinding teeth are the way food is disintegrated, and it would make sense for the engineers to figure out how to remedy these common breakdowns. Everything else on the unit works great, such as the motor, connections, etc. No issues otherwise. Seems like such a simple fix if GE wanted to make it. BUT, then they would lose "repeat" customers like me, buying the same obsolete units. Oh well.

I purchased this product as an exact replacement for my unit which had cracked and leaked. Apparently done before I purchased home. Unit installed easily and sounds much better than previous unit. I was able to use old drain and no alterations to plumbing. Previous unit was 6 years old and does not appear it was installed properly. New unit works GREAT!

My disposal doesn't work well at all! First and foremost the water doesn't drain out of the sink unless you turn the disposal on or push down on the rubber to open it up. Also, the black drain stopper doesn't fit!

Bostonant 7/20/2018

Recently bought this to replace my 11 year old GFC325 corded model. That one the teeth broke, probably my own fault as I used to put chopped lemons in there to freshen. But I fugured if I got 11 years out of that one and probably broke on my own, this new upgraded model should last a while! It is a bit noisy though, but overall happy, and got a good deal at $92.
