Delivery is for standard common carrier "curbside" delivery. "Curbside Delivery" includes delivery to the curb in front of your home.It does not typically include moving the item into your home, garage, or other location.The carrier will call to schedule a delivery appointment.A signature is required at the time of delivery.Please include a daytime phone number with your shipping information.Delivery locations that are extraordinary (such as an island or mountain top or extreme rural areas) may create additional delivery charges, one of our sales agents will be in touch to review your delivery options.

When delivery occurs please personally inspect your merchandise before signing for the product.Look for things such as holes in the box or any other type of damage to the packaging.If the packaging looks questionable do not sign for the item(s)!If you feel the damage is something you can live with- Please note all damage on the bill of lading when you sign for it.Do not let anyone tell you that you must sign for the item.

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.

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.

Slim design - great perfromance

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.

It do great with all the same functionality. My only issue is there is a small water ring that does not seem to drain. I think that is because of the sink.

RogerWin 10/23/2019

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.

After using a ge garbage disposal for 15 years, it was time for a new one. It came with a power cord which I had to remove to use the wire connectors. Other than that minor setback, connection was a quite easy.

Shorter 8/20/2019

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!
