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 and 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.

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

Rust and leaks

Submitted by Chyatt - 9/23/2020

Rusted out. The company doesnt' respond. Read the reviews. They should last 10 years not 2 or 3. Pics are all different serial #'s. When they say someone is working with you, they mean they've told you, there hasn't been any reported defects with this years batch.

Very Quite

Submitted by Paulette K - 7/26/2020

After 9 years, my old disposal died. I didn't want to install another heavy one, because I would be, once again, installing the new one by myself. I looked around and found this one by Frigidaire. It's light and easy to install. Very quite, too.

Piece of Junk

Submitted by dwatsonpe - 8/6/2018

My builder installed this model in our house December 2015. This morning, the unit made an awful noise, so I immediately removed power and took apart to troubleshoot. The rivet holding one of the blades came loose, sending the blade shooting around the unit™€™s inner housing. This isn™€™t something that can simply be fixed; therefore, I need a new unit. These things should last 10-15 years, yet ours lasted for 2.5 years (with minimal use, I might add). I called Frigidaire to see if they would stand by their product; however, they stand by the warranty - 2 years. That said, they didn™€™t offer so much as an apology, let alone a replacement, for their seemingly defective product. Looks like there will be no more Frigidaire appliances for our family!

quiet but powerful

Submitted by spatter - 4/5/2018

We replaced our dishwasher and thought it would be smart to replace the disposal at the same time. It is a better model than what we had but just as affordable. Works well, would definitely recommend

Great value for the price

Submitted by Shinobi - 1/6/2018

I bought this a couple of months ago. Rather than getting the standard brand that's usually at the hardware stores again, I wanted to try something different. That last "other brand" disposal I had was cheap and loud.I did some research and found this Frigidaire model for the same price, but it offered more sound insulation. I was skeptical since it was the same low price and I didn't know Frigidaire to make garbage disposals, but I gave it a go.This garbage disposal outperforms the last one I had and is noticeably quieter. It looks much nicer too, even though it'll spend its life under the kitchen sink hidden.The only issue I have is the design of the rubber pieces in the opening of the garbage disposal where it attaches to the flange. When the water drains, it doesn't drain quickly because the those rubber pieces are just flaps that have a small opening in the center. It causes the water to pool a little at the bottom of the drain, which gets worse if food gets stuck there. The other brand had staggered rubber pieces that allowed the water to drain more quickly.Despite this one flaw, I would definitely get this over my previous one given the choice again.
