Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not good.... Earlier reviews are correct. you have to squeeze handle hard enough to break your hand, in order for the snake to move forward and backward. Better off renting a better tool..

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Tip broke on the very first use Auto clean K30 sink machine tip broke on the very first use. I have a number of Ridgid tools and use them all the time. This may have well been a lemon. Still very disappointed.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from bad auto feed design i purchased this unit today thinking that it would be a simple to use tool. I was wrong. I am a master plumber with 35 yrs experience. I have all types of drain equipment. The auto feed mechanism is a joke. I had to press so hard to get the cable to feed my hand hurt very bad with pain. I am so sorry that Home Depot has a no return on this. I should have known when it was the only one marked with this label that something was up. Do not purchase this product.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Switch dosent work The air operated foot switch is garbage. Air leaks out of it so within minutes it is completely compressed and will not start the machine until I take it apart so it can refil with air. The machine is great but the switch makes it unusable. Is there a fix for this's problem?

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Ridgid k30 I am a loyal ridgid customer, I have always trusted your brand. You guys make the best tools out there for plumbers. I am though, very disappointed with the product. I invested a few hundred bucks for this machine it worked extremely well for about 2months and now the cable will not feed in or out. And of course I cannot return it for a new one. I feel ripped off and abandoned by a company I have always trusted. What a Shame.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice, light weight, snake. I like the cable housing it minimized the mess that I've experienced with other snake's. I would recommend this snake for the reasons in my review summary. I will say when you are finished using the snake take it outside and extend the cable out and wash it off with clean bleach water, take off anything that has been wrapped around the cable, dry the cable off and spray the cable down with wd-40. The wheels on auto feed handle also need to be lubricated after each use. Great snake for the price!

Answer: 
Go on Ridgid's website, type in your zip code and find Ridgid dealer in your area. Home Depot usually carries a pretty full line of Ridgid accessories and parts. WARNING!! DON'T SUBSTITUTE. Get Ridgid replacement parts to work correctly in Ridgid machine (and not VOID your lifetime warrantee.) Brasscraft, Spartan, General, Ace Hardware, True Value, local plumbing supply house brand may look alike, but do not perform the same (and are sometimes dangerous to cause injury).. Again, you7 get what you pay for.

Answer: 
The inner drum has 2 tabs where you lock the cable into place.This is where the Rigid team used logic.General wire does not had this feature.

Answer: 
You would need to mark the cable to know the footage. Most people will mark the cable with nail polish every five feet. Hope this helps.

Answer: 
because the cable is clipped inside the drum, it just won't feed anymore. I've wondered if there wouldn't be a way of marking the cable every 5 ft so that you could know how much cable you've put down the drain.
