Professional delivery and installation is available for every product we sell. We would be happy to coordinate delivery and installation for you.

Extended warranties are usually very inexpensive and can save you thousands in the future. Some can even cover extra costs that result, such as cost of food that spoils when your fridge dies. It's simple and inexpensive to purchase extended warranties and one of the smartest ways to protect your investment.

Appliances can be large, heavy and expensive. You probably don't have the special tools or expertise needed to fix them in a crisis. If you can spare a few thousand dollars without batting an eyelash for new appliances should they break tomorrow, don't buy a warranty. But if you're like most of us, protect yourself by purchasing inexpensive extended warranties when you buy a new product and save yourself big money in the long run.

Better than the Insinkerator!

JBattle 10/2/2020

I bought the 1/2 HP garbage disposal from Frigidaire to replace my 1/3 HP Insinkerator, which had malfunctioned and caused leaking under my kitchen sink. The Frigidaire is not only an attractive blue that looks stylish under my new cabinet, but it really works! It grinds and breaks down food scraps effortlessly! It also performs with less noise than my previous disposal. I would definitely recommend to anyone looking to upgrade.

Worked for a couple of months - then not

Samalreadyusednickna 3/11/2020

I've tried three times now with phone and chat customer service. It's basically a new disposal that just stopped working. Now the situation is worse than no disposal at all. Customer help/service is absolutely horrible! Long waits, no help.It still does not work. Yes, I've gone through all the steps in troubleshooting on page 8 of the manual.

Quiet, Compact, Powerful Grinder

Kfuller2209 2/16/2020

I bought this about 2 months ago because I missed having one. Install took about 2 hours due to having to rework the plumbing as this was a new install. It is so much quieter than the one we had in our previous house. Grind everything I have put down there and doesn't have any issues I would absolutely recommend this to anyone. I was also able to snag it on sale so thats always a plus.

Rich in StL 12/29/2019

Easy installation as it used same collar as my old disposal. Average level of noise. No crank to loosen a clog...you have to stick a broom handle in it!

My old garbage disposal started leaking and had to buy a new one quick and came across this Frigidaire. After reading the reviews it was a good choice to go with.

Died!

mcele2018 12/10/2018

I purchased this on July 2017; Replaced it today (after months of it not working). About a year in life span. This was an expensive (paid twice for installation) and annoying mistake.

2 year LIFE SPAN

cubs 9/5/2018

I don't normally do reviews, but this product is so bad that I felt like it needed to be done! I bought my first Frigidaire disposal and it lasted a little under a two years, luckily it was under a 2 year warranty so we were covered, but still had to pay a plumber. With this 2nd disposal it lasted exactly 2 years. I am a few weeks out of my 2 year warranty now, so it won't be covered. Don't buy this disposal unless you only need it for 2 years, even if it falls into the warranty you still have to deal with the hassle of replacing it yourself or paying a plumber. Very dissatisfied

Bad product customer 12/23/2017

I bought ours a month ago and had it installed by an appliance guy. It stopped working after a month and I tried to call , web chat and email to have it fixed or replaced through Frigidaire but no one would help me or give me information. Finally I called a plumber after getting No help from Frigidaire and had in replaced with a different brand. I™€™m out of pocket 200.00 and We not be buying anymore of your products.

Great Product from a great brand

AztroRover 7/17/2016

I bought this disposal because I bought a 1920's California Craftsman and want a brand that reflects the nostalgia of the 1920's. I used all Frigidaire Gallery appliances and this disposal although not from the gallery line was all I really needed. The sink ring bares the logo that brings the whole kitchen together. As for reliability, they have all been great products, as I expected. This particular disposal is very smooth, quiet, and efficiant. I have lived in other homes that the disposal was so loud it would shake the kitchen. Overall great product line.

John 10/6/2014

This is a great food disposer, very easy to install. I'm not quiet sold on the noise level but I wasn't about to buy another insinkeratorto have it crack and leak all over my cabinet again. So well worth the money just wish it wasn't a special order product.

installation of fridgidaire disposal

mikew 6/1/2014

This unit replaced my 35yr old unit. I was suprised how light it was and the ease with wich I was able to install it with. Unit works great with more horse power and a lot less noise when operating. will have to wait and see how it will perform when my wife dumps some bones in it.I rate this a 5 star so far.

I had to finally replace my old 35 yearnold disposer. This one is physically smaller and more horsepower. I was able to install it myself with a minimum of effort.
