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.

Easy to install with easy to follow instructions. Very happy with how simple it was to replace an existing, nonworking disposer with this unit.

I bought one for my previous house too

Msacademy 10/9/2020

Great! It is very powerful. We had this unit for ten years in our previous house. When we bought our current house, my wife wanted that GE unit installed in it too, even though the Existing brand was working fine. One of the great features is that you can take the rubber drain filter out of the drain and clean it and place it back in. If I ever buy another house, I will buy it again!!!! You should too!

Replaced a dead 525 disposal

Johnnysd1701 6/27/2020

It was difficult to mount this replacement. Also, it came without a power cord. Make sure to include the "power cord kit". I didn't and worked through removing the power cord from the failed unit.

Works well and easy to install.

Bsohn 6/2/2020

Our old disposal worked for many years but when it started to go in and out, we decided to buy the same model and try installing it ourselves, as it has a quick release. The part was relatively inexpensive, and it came with all necessary components for me to replace the unit myself in under an hour. Easy peasy and works great!

Louder than some others but reliable.

TheAllens 5/10/2020

Tried another model to replace our previous 12-year-old version of this. It was quieter but not as good, so opted to swap out for the same model as we had previously. Works well and not too loud.

Impellers break off

Joseph4192020 4/19/2020

I am on my third GFC520. The first two, after slightly more than 2 years, broke. In each case the impellers on the grinding plate separated. We are very careful what we grind - no bones, cut into small pieces before grinding etc. Assumed the first was an anomaly. Only bought a third since customer relations offered a $50 rebate, replacement installation is easy and maybe improvements were made in manufacture. The first two were GFC520Vs, the third is a GFC520N. The disposal function of grinding works well when impellers are in place and does not lock up. Question has the impeller issue been addressed in the new model number? I would not recommend unless there were improvements made in construction of the impeller attachments to the grinding plate.
