TROUBLESHOOTING

Before seeking repair or replacement, we recommend that you review the following:

LOUD NOISES: (Other than those during grinding of small bones and fruit pits): These are usually caused by accidental entry of a spoon, bottle cap or other foreign object. To correct this, turn off electrical switch and water. After disposer has stopped, remove *splash guard, remove object with long handled tongs, and replace *splash guard.

UNIT DOES NOT START: Unplug power cord or turn either the wall switch or breaker box switch to “OFF” position, depending on your model and wiring configuration. Remove stopper and/or *splash guard. Check to see if turntable will rotate freely using a wooden broom handle. If turntable rotates freely, replace *splash guard and check reset button to see if it has been tripped.Re-setbutton is red and located opposite discharge elbow, near the bottom (see 8A). Push button in until it clicks and remains depressed.

If re-setbutton has not been tripped, check for shorted or broken wire connecting to disposer. Check electrical power switch, fuse box or circuit breaker. If wiring and electrical components are intact, the unit may have internal problems that require service or replacement.

*Splash guard not used on Top Control/Batch Feed unit.

IF TURNTABLE DOES NOT ROTATE FREELY:

Turn off disposer, then check for any foreign object lodged between the turntable and grind ring. Dislodge object by rotating table with a wooden broom handle and remove object. (see 8B) If no foreign object is present, there may be internal problems.

LEAKS: If the unit leaks at the top, it may be due to:

1.Improper seating of sink flange (gasket centering, putty or tightening).

2.Support ring not tightened properly.

3.Defective or improperly installed cushion mount.

If unit leaks at the waste elbow, leak may be due to improper tightening of elbow flange screws.

CLEANING AND MAINTENANCE

DO NOT ATTEMPT TO LUBRICATE YOUR DISPOSER!

The motor is permanently lubricated. The disposer is self cleaning and scours its internal parts with each use.

NEVER put lye or chemical drain cleaners into the disposer, as they cause serious corrosion of metal parts. If used, resulting damage can be easily detected an all warranties are void.

Mineral deposits from your water can form on the stainless steel turntable, giving the appearance of rust. DO NOT BE ALARMED, the stainless steel turntables used will not corrode.

REMOVAL OF OLD UNIT

TYPICAL INSTRUCTIONS, YOUR MODEL MAY VARY

Before starting this step, turn off electrical power at the circuit breaker or fuse box.

If your old mount is the same as the mount on your new disposer, just reverse the assembly instructions found in section Installation of Mounting Assembly. If your new mount system is different, follow these instructions:

A.Use a pipe wrench to disconnect drain line where it attaches to disposer discharge tube (see A).

B.Remove disposer from sink flange by turning mount ring to the left clockwise (see B). If you are unable to turn the mount ring, tap on one of the extensions from the ring with a hammer. Some mounting systems have tubular extensions. Inserting a screwdiver into on tube will provide additional leverage for turning the mount ring (see B). Some disposers may require the removal or loosening of nuts from the mount screws (see C). Some disposers may require the removal of a clamp.

IMPORTANT: Unless you have a new home, this is a good time to clean out the trap and drain lines by running a drain auger or plumber’s snake before installing your new disposer.

Caution: Be sure to support the disposer while perfomring this step or it may fall when the mounting ring is disconnected from the mounting assembly. If your disposer is hard wired (metal shielded cable not utilizing a wall plug), complete steps C and D. If you utilize a plugin cord, go on to step E.

C.When disposer is removed, turn up side down and remove electrical cover plate (see D).

D.Use screwdriver to remove green ground wire. Remove wire nuts from black and white power wires and

separate disposer wires from power cable wires. Loosen screws on cable clamp and separate cable from disposer.

E.To remove remaining mount system from the sink, loosen mount screws, push mount ring up. Under it is the snap ring. Use screwdriver to pop off ring (see E). Remove mount ring, protector ring and gasket from sink flange. Some mounts will require the unscrewing of a large ring holding the sink flange in place. Pull sink flange up through sink and clean off old putty from sink.

DISHWASHER CONNECTION

D E

If you are utilizing a dishwasher, complete the following procedure. If dishwasher is not to be connected go to section Installation of Mounting Assembly.

A.Using a blunt instrument (steel punch or wooden dowl), knock out entire plug (see A). Do not use a screwdriver or sharp instrument. When knockout plug falls into disposer, you may remove it or simply grind it up when the disposer is used. This will not damage the disposer in any way, but may take sometime to grind, over the course of several uses. Go to section Installation of Mounting Assembly.

B.Connect dishwasher hose using hose clamp. If hose size is different, you will need a Dishwasher Connector Kit (see B). Make sure all plumbing connections are tight and in accordance with all plumbing codes and ordinances. Run water and check for leaks.

READ COMPLETELY BEFORE STARTING

NOTE: Pay close attention to the order of mount assembly parts, as they have been correctly assembled by the factory.

A.Disassemble the mounting assembly, as it has been shipped, by turning the sink flange assembly until the projections align with the notches in the lower mount ring and allow you to pull the sink flange up and out of the remaining lower mount assembly. Note the sequence of these parts as they are stacked to identify each part. Unscrew the 3 mount screws until the mounting ring can be moved to the top of the back up flange. Remove the snap ring with a screw driver.

B.Keep these assembled parts together and set aside. Before you connect the disposer to the mount assembly under the sink. Make sure the lower mounting is in place and the hush cushion is engaged properly to the top of the hopper.

C.Be sure your sink is clean. Pack the underside rim of the sink flange with plumber’s putty. Position the sink flange so it is centered and readable as you look into your sink. Push the sink opening to make a good seal. DO NOT move or rotate the sink flange once seated or the seal may be broken.

D.Take the remaining portion of the mount assembly, as it was set aside and make sure that the rubber gasket is on top of the protector ring. From under the sink, while holding the sink flange firmly with one hand, line up the notches in the mount ring with the projections of the sink flange. Slide the mount assembly up onto the sink flange. Slide the mount assembly up onto the sink flange, past the projections

E.Tighten the 3 mounting screws evenly with a screwdriver (see E). DO NO OVERTIGHTEN! Trim off excess putty.

OPERATING INSTRUCTIONS

The Anti-JamSwivell Impellers make a clicking sound as they swing into place. This indicates normal operation.

A.Remove sink stopper. Turn on a medium flow of cold water.

B.Turn switch to ON position; your motor is turning at full speed and ready to use.

C.Scrape in food waste. Down the drain go table scraps, peelings, rinds, seeds, pits, small bones and coffee grounds. to speed up food waste disposal, cut or break up large bones, rinds and cobs. Large bones and fibrous husks require considerable grinding time and are more easily thrown away with other trash. Do not be alarmed

that the disposer slows down while grinding. The disposer is actually increasing torque (grinding power) and is operating under normal conditions.

D.Before turning disposer off, let water and disposer run for approximately 15 seconds after shredding stops. This assures that all waste is thoroughly flushed through trap and drain.

E.It is not recommended to use hot water while running disposer. Cold water will keep waste and fats solid so disposer can flush away particles.

BATCH FEED OPERATING INSTRUCTIONS

The Anti-JamSwivel Impellers make a clicking sounds as they swing into place. This indicates normal operation.

A.Remove sink stopper and turn on a medium flow of cold water.

B.Scrape in food waste. Down the drain go table scraps, vegetable peelings, cobs, rinds, pits, bones and coffee grounds. (see A)

C.Insert stopper to start disposer. (see B) One of the two small slots in stopper base must line up with switch plunger inside the neck of the disposer. Push down firmly to turn the disposer on. Lift stopper to shut the disposer off.

D.Run disposer for 15 seconds after shredding stops. This assures that all waste is thoroughly flushed through the drain.

E.To fill sink, insert stopper and align the largest slot with the switch plunger. (see C) Push down to seal sink without starting the disposer. When medium sized slot (see B) in stopper base is lined up with the switch plunger, water, can drain, but tableware, etc., cannot be accidentally dropped into disposer.
