I also got the email for the Waste King L-8000 model I bought for a friend.  They will replace it in your home at no cost:

Neat, moved to deal discussions so no one will see it. I mean, it's only a safety issue. 

*sigh

and now we know why they were marking them all down.

just to note before you call, you need your serial number

what is the replacement type/model?

the recall is serial number specific (as stated in the above list in the wiki)

Bummer!
I'm lucky, just checked my serial number and it is not included in the list.
Thanks for posting this to fatwallet.

bought one back in '08 for my parents, thanks for the heads up, forwarded it to they to check their serial.

  Waste King:   It seems as if the number following the letter indicates the year of manufacture - 1G6-xxxxxxxx.  So, unless that's a 5, 6 or 7 it's not included.  Mine is 1H2 (2012 - also the year of purchase) so it's not part of the recall.

Thanks for the excellent post OP. I am lucky, too mine is not included in the recall.

Thanks for the post. I have not used mine very much. It turns out that mine is one on the list. I filled out the on line form. A few days later, they acknowledged it is subject to the recall. I have received a $0.00 invoice for the replacement unit of the same model. I have received a separate email advising me the unit is covered by the recall and indicating the local installer, they have made arrangements with to come in an make the physical swap. They are supplying a FedEx return label for the recalled unit.

This has been such a pain in the rear. #1, cost to install was $170 and they only reimburse $150, PLUS had to pay almost $10 at fedex because they wouldn't take packaging WASTEKING sent me ugh!!

  I would take them to small claims for the entire amount because but for the disposal's recall, you wouldn't have incurred these extra fees.

I was just notified by FEDEX that my replacement unit was shipped overnight and expected to arrive later today.
