It was very difficult to find a splash guard to fit. Have tried at major stores LOWES and small Hardware stores. The people who worked on your Phone line helped me to choose the correct splashguard even though the model number did not match. I think the diposal was old. thanks for your help. It fit perfectly.

The Splash Guard had begun to disintgrate. One from Lowes didn't fit correctly. The Stopper got thrown away by accident during the holidays.

The repair was extremely simple, it took less than a minute to complete. It was a perfect fit and it significantly reduced and dampened the noise once it was installed. The shipping was super fast as it arrived within 48 hours of my placing to order.

The rubber got old and weak. The splash guard kept falling into the disposer when you tryed to push food down.

Just like one of the other guys who had this problem, I had purchased a "universal" replacement from ACE that did not fit my appliance. When I got your replacement it took me just seconds to pop out the old one and push in the new one. It works perfectly! Thanks

We really didn't need to repair anything, we just needed to replace the splash guard. It came in two days and we are pleased with this website.

the splash guard for my sink drain (g.e. disposal) would not stay in place and would fall into the disposal. i had previously bought "universal" splash guards at 2 different home improvement stores--neither of which fit.

I received the replacement made for my exact model of disposal in approx 4 days. I simply pushed the new one in place and problem solved! In the future, I will order repair parts from PartSelect! Excellent service and product!

Old splash guard had been accidentally forced down into disposal blades.

Simple -- Removed the old piece using fingers and inserted the replacement. The important thing is that the replacement part had to be the right one, because the "generic" splash guards available at Hme Deopt, Lowe's, etc. are too large in diameter and do not, despite what they will tell you in the stores, fit. They only fit the brands they sell in the stores. Even though GE disposals are quite common, they do not carry any replacement parts for this brand. DO NOT rely on the advice they will give you in the sotre.
