Then dismount the disposer from the sink mounting assembly. Finally remove the sink flange from the topside of the sink (ILLUSTRATION #4).

Then push the waste reducer up through the drain opening. (ILLUSTRATION #6)

If the drain opening on your sink is covered with sealant, remove as much of the putty as possible from the rim of the sink drain hole.

Unless you have a new home, be sure that the existing trap and drain lines are clear. If the drain line is not clear, use a plumber’s rod or auger to remove all impediments.

INSTALL THE SINK MOUNT FLANGE

If a hole needs to be cut in the sink, it should be diameter 87-92mm.

First, place the sink flange rubber gasket over the sink flange’s threaded ring. Insert the flange and rubber gasket in to the sink drain opening from the top side of the sink. It is not necessary to use plumber’s putty when installing the sink flange.

Second, place the sink flange fiber gasket over the sink flange’s threaded ring. Next, attach the mount ring and tighten with one hand while using the other hand to press down on the sink flange. (ILLUSTRATION #7). Hand tighten as tight as possible. Do not try to tighten with a wrench or hammer.

MOUNTING THE DISPOSER

1.Loosen and remove the hinged clamp. (ILLUSTRATION #9).

2.The rubber splash guard should be attached to the waste disposal unit and not to the sink flange. Using two hands, push the disposer upwards so that the inner groove on the splash guard locks on to the sink flange. If necessary, use cooking oil to lubricate the inner rim on the exposed side (top side) of the splash guard. Once engaged, the disposer will hang freely by itself. (ILLUSTRATION #10).

3.Place the hinged clamp around the splash guard and lock in place. (ILLUSTRATION #11 & #12).

4.The appliance must be installed so that the reset button is readily accessible.

SAFETY FEATURES

Your disposer is equipped with an overload protector which prevents the disposer from running should it overload. Overload generally occurs when a foreign object has fallen into the disposer and jammed the impellors, thus preventing the motor from turning. Overload may also occur if you have put too much food waste into the disposer at one time. If overload occurs, turn off the disposer and remove the foreign matter or food waste from the disposer. Insert a hex wrench into the opening at the bottom of the motor shaft and rotate the tool clockwise (ILLUSTRATION #18). Wait five to ten minutes, push the red reset button on the bottom of the disposer, and restart the machine.

DISPOSER MAINTENANCE

With normal usage your disposer should not require any special care. The motor is permanently lubricated and will not require oiling under normal usage conditions.

If used according to the operating instructions above, your disposer should not require cleaning. However, should it start to smell, grinding a tray of ice cubes in the disposer will clean the grinding components. Grinding a lemon, cut into quarters, will also give your disposer a fresh, clean smell.
