InSinkErator CRD-00 Power Cord Kit

InSinkErator power cord
Why have I listed a Power Cord? It’s one of the most popular add-ons because InSinkErator garbage disposal units do not normally include a power cord!

This InSinkErator CRD-00 Power Cord Kit is an easy-to-fit add-on. It includes a 3ft cord (that’s UL Listed), a strain relief clamp to make sure the cord is never under stress, wire connectors and installation instructions. At the end of cord is a standard plug that’ll fit a standard wall outlet. This genuine InSinkErator product meets Underwriter Laboratories Inc. SPT-3 category for insulation thickness and moisture resistance.

Why don’t garbage disposers include a power cord? Simple, some installers fit a armor-sheathed cord and hard-wire this in to your electrical system. Other installers fit a standard cord that plugs into a standard wall outlet – but this means you need a wall outlet under your sink. Either way, you’re likely to have the wrong cord in the box so the manufacturers normally leave it out altogether, allowing your contractor to choose the right one for your setup.

How to connect the cord

If you’re not going to hard-wire the garbage disposer, then you need a wall outlet. If you don’t have a wall outlet, you have three options:
a) hire an electrician to install a new outlet
b) obtain a homeowner electrical permit from your local government office and do it yourself, and then have it inspected
c) do it yourself without a permit (which is a violation in most jurisdictions)

 

Warning: Electricity is dangerous! Do not try and install this unless you are qualified in your state to install electrical devices !
