And they can help reduce greenhouse gas emissions. At capable wastewater treatment plants, food waste can be converted to biosolids and used as fertilizer. Capable plants can also capture methane gas and recycle it as an energy source. (Check the plant in your area.) Read through the entire Installation, Care & Use manual before installing the disposer. Determine which of the tools, materials, and accessories you will need before you begin. Make sure you have all necessary disposer parts before installing the disposer. NOTE: The Evolution models grind much finer than any other disposer. For this reason you may notice that it takes a little longer to grind some food waste. Due to the Evolution 200 model’s microprocessor, users will experience a fractional second delay when starting on all Evolution 200 models. This is completely normal. NOTE: In Australia, all plumbing and electrical work must be completed by a qualified tradesperson. This product may require approval of the relevant regulator and/or the sewerage system operator. Disposer must be installed to AS/NZS 3500.2 standard requirements. NOTE: Make sure that the installation of this appliance is allowed by the authorities.

Failure to clean sink waste pipe line may result in waste pipe blockage. 2.Loosen nut (2) at top of extension pipe. Remove extension pipe. 1.Remove trap. (See Figure 6.1) 3.Loosen nut (3) at base of sink flange. 2.With drain auger, clear away all hardened waste material in horizontal drainline running from drain trap to main pipe. If your disposer is not equipped with an electrical plug and cord connection, contact an electrician to disconnect the old disposer plus install an earth (grounded) electrical wall outlet for the new disposer connection that must be compliant to all local electrical codes. 2.Disconnect drain trap from disposer waste discharge tube with adjustable pliers (see Figure 3.1). Also disconnect dishwasher drain connection, if applicable. 3.Support disposer with one hand and insert end of wrenchette or screwdriver into right side of one mounting lug on lower mounting ring (see Figure 3.2). Lift disposer slightly and remove from mounting by pushing or pulling wrenchette or screwdriver to left (disposer may be heavy; provide support). 4.Loosen three mounting screws, pry snap ring off with screwdriver, and remove old mounting assembly (see Figure 3.3). Some mounting assembly removal requires additional tools. 5.Push old sink flange up through sink hole (see Figure 3.4). Skip ahead to Instruction 5. 4.Push sink flange up through sink hole and remove it (see Figure 4.2). IF YOU ARE NOT CONNECTING A DISHWASHER TO DISPOSER, SKIP AHEAD TO INSTRUCTION 8. 5.Clean sink flange area of any putty or other debris. NOTE: The sink hole may have to be enlarged to accept the disposer sink flange. Sink hole enlargement tools are available from your InSinkErator Dealer. 5 ATTACH UPPER MOUNTING ASSEMBLY TO SINK Reference Figure 5.1. 1.Place one of two rubber gaskets (2) under sink flange (1). Ensure sink hole area is clear of debris and place sink flange/gasket into sink hole. You may wish to place a weighted object in the sink to hold the sink flange in place. (Place a towel under object to prevent scratching.) 2.Working from under the sink, slip second rubber gasket (2), fiber gasket (optional) (3) and metal backup ring (4) (flat side up) over the sink flange. 3.Holding second rubber gasket, fiber gasket (optional) and metal backup ring in place, slip mounting ring (5) over sink flange so it seats against backup ring. 4.With the rubber gasket, fiber gasket (optional), backup ring, and mounting ring tight against sink bottom, slide snap ring (7) onto sink flange until it pops into groove on flange. 7 DISHWASHER ATTACHMENT AND OVERFLOW CONNECTION DOES NOT APPLY TO AUSTRALIA/NEW ZEALAND In Australia, it is suggested that the dishwasher units be connected to IPLEX/ COROMA dishwasher spigot for maximum efficiency. Wastewater from a dishwasher can be plumbed into the disposer through the inlet access on the upper part of the disposer. There is a plug on the inside of the inlet tube on all models. Once removed, the knockout plug cannot be replaced. NOTE: If the dishwasher connection is made without removing the plug, the dishwasher may overflow. (Connections must comply with local plumbing codes.) THE SINK OVERFLOW The sink overflow may be connected to the overflow tube on the tailpipe (see Figure 7.2). Remove the overflow connector cap and blue plastic seal from the end of the overflow tube (see Figure 7.3). Utilizing the nut, connect the overflow hose to the tailpipe. NOTE: The straight discharge tube for use in Australia does not have an overflow connection tube. In the UK, waste trap kit, which does not include the sink overflow kit, is available from your local InSinkErator dealer. REMOVE KNOCKOUT PLUG 1.Lay disposer on its side and insert screwdriver into dishwasher inlet so tip rests on outer edge of knockout plug. (installation continued on reverse) 2.Tap end of screwdriver handle with hammer until molded plug breaks loose (see Figure 7.1). 3.Remove loose knockout plug from inside disposer. 5.Tighten three mounting screws (6) up to sink until mounting assembly is seated tightly and evenly against sink.

(See Figure 8.2) 12 CONNECT DISPOSER TO ELECTRICAL SUPPLY ELECTRICAL SHOCK •To avoid electrical shock, disconnect power before installing or servicing disposer. •If you are not thoroughly familiar with electric power, contact a qualified electrician to connect disposer to electrical circuit. •If three-prong, earth (grounded) plug is used, plug must be inserted into three-hole, earth (grounded) receptacle. •Do not modify plug provided with unit (if applicable). •Improper connection of equipment earth (grounded) conductor can result in electric shock. •All wiring must comply with local electrical codes. •Do not attach earth wire (ground wire) to gas supply pipe. •Do not reconnect electrical current at main service panel until proper earth (grounded) outlets are installed. •If the supply cord is damaged, it must be replaced by the manufacturer, its service agent or similarly qualified-persons in order to avoid a hazard. NOTE: You must have access to an earth (grounded) wall socket. Any additional socket should be fitted by a qualified electrician and properly earthed (grounded). The disposer is fitted with a molded plug and cable. ON/OFF CONTROL There are two types of controls for continuous-feed disposers: a double-pole switch and an air switch (built in for Evolution 200, Evolution 100, and Model 65; available as an accessory on all other models). Double Pole Switch (1): If a wall switch (not supplied) is required for your installation, it must have on/off markings and be installed by a qualified tradeperson. It should be located in a convenient position above the work surface with a minimum of 3 mm contact separation between each pole (20 ADP switches to BS 3676). In New Zealand, please refer to AS/NZS 3000:2007 for electrical installation. Connect to a 13 amp earth (grounded) wall socket (2) using a 13 amp cable. (See Figure 11.1) Air Switch (Evolution 200, Evolution 100, Model 65, Model 55-1B A/S, 55-3B A/S and 45-1B A/S): The Evolution 200, Evolution 100, and Model 65 disposers include a built-in air switch (Satin Nickel and Chrome finishes). An air switch activates/turns off the unit by sending a pulse of air to the control box. AIR SWITCH INSTALLATION The air switch includes two different button finishes. If you wish to change the button finish (optional), simply pry off the existing button and snap the other button finish onto the bellows. (See Figure 11.2) 1.Drill a 33 mm wide hole into the kitchen work top, or the corner of the sink unit, at the most convenient point for use. Some sink units may already have a suitable hole in them which can be exposed by removing the cap. 2.Remove the nut from the push button bellows, while keeping the stainless steel washer and rubber gasket in place. Push one end of the PVC tubing onto the spout of the push button bellows, feed the other end of the tube through the hole in the work top and through the nut underneath the work top. (See Figure 11.3) 3.Fit the push button bellows in the hole and then screw up the nut underneath the work top until it is hand tight. Do not use a wrench to tighten the nut. (See Figure 11.4) 4.Take the other end of the air tube and firmly push it over the spout of the air switch, which is located on the underside of the waste disposer. (See Figure 11.5) DISABLING THE AIR SWITCH The air switch can be disabled if wall switch operation is preferred. The disposer is shipped with the switch in the “off ” position. 1.Push one end of the PVC tubing provided onto the spout of the push button bellows. (See Figure 11.3) 2.Take the other end of the air tube and push it over the spout of the air switch, which is located on the underside of the waste disposer. (See Figure 11.5) 3.Depress the air switch one time until you hear the switch “click.” Remove and discard the push button bellows and PVC tubing. The disposer may now be activated by a wall switch. The disposer installation is complete. Read all operating and safety instructions in Instruction 12 before operating the disposer. Lastly, place stopper in sink in close position. Fill sink with water, remove stopper, turn disposer on and check for leaks. INSTRUCTIONS PERTAINING TO RISK OF FIRE, ELECTRICAL SHOCK, OR INJURY TO PERSONS (SAVE THESE INSTRUCTIONS) When using electronic appliances, basic precautions are always to be followed, including: •In Australia, product may require approval of the relevant regulator and/or the sewerage system operator. •If the air switch or wall switch fails to shut off or turn on disposer, unplug power cord plug and contact your qualified trade person. •This product is designed to dispose of normal household food waste; inserting materials other than food waste into disposer could cause personal injury and/or property damage. To reduce the risk of injury, do not use the sink containing the disposer for purposes other than food preparation (such as baby bathing or washing hair). •This appliance is not intended for use by persons (including children) with reduced physical, sensory or mental capabilities, or lack of experience and knowledge, unless they have been given supervision or instruction concerning use of appliance by a person responsible for their safety. Children should be supervised to ensure that they do not play with disposer. To reduce the risk of injury, close supervision is required when an appliance is used near children. •When attempting to loosen a jam in the food waste disposer, switch off or unplug the appliance before attempting to free a jammed rotor. Use a self service wrenchette as described in the Releasing Disposer Jam section. •Use long-handled tongs or pliers to remove objects from disposer. •To reduce the risk of injury by materials that are expellable by a waste disposer, do not operate Evolution disposers without the sound baffle in place (See Figure 8.4). Place stopper in sink opening as shown in Figure 12.2 or 12.4. Do not put the following into a disposer: clam or oyster shells, caustic drain cleaners or similar products, glass, china, or plastic, large (whole) bones, metal (such as bottle caps, steel shot, tin cans, or utensils), hot grease or other hot liquids. •Replace sound baffle/mounting gasket/splash baffle when worn to help prevent entry or ejection of material and water. •When not using disposer, leave stopper in place to reduce risk of objects falling into disposer. Make sure disposer power switch is turned off. •Before pressing reset button, attempting to clear jam, or removing objects from inside disposer, make sure disposer power switch is turned off. •Do not insert hands or fingers into disposer. •FIRE HAZARD: Do not store flammable items such as rags, paper, or aerosol cans near disposer. Do not store or use gasoline or other flammable vapors and liquids in vicinity of disposer. •Do not dispose of the following in the disposer: paints, solvents, household cleaners and chemicals, automotive fluids, plastic wrap. OPERATING INSTRUCTIONS (EVOLUTION 200 AND EVOLUTION 100) 1. Remove strainer basket and plug from sink opening and run cold water. • Don’t fill disposer with a lot of vegetable peels all at once. Instead, turn the water and disposer on first and then feed the peels in gradually. 2.Turn on wall switch or press air switch (see Figure 12.1) to start disposer. • 3.Slowly insert food waste into disposer and position strainer basket and plug in upright position (allowing water to run through) to minimize noise and possible ejection of material while grinding (See Figure 12.2). 4.After grinding is complete, turn disposer off and run water for at least 15 seconds to flush drain line. 5.Strainer basket and plug also acts as a stopper in the lower position. (See Figure 12.3) OPERATING INSTRUCTIONS (MODELS 65, 55, 45, LC-50) 1.Remove stopper from sink opening and run cold water. 2.Turn on wall switch or press air switch (see Figure 12.1) to start disposer. 3.Slowly insert food waste into disposer and position stopper to minimize noise and possible ejection of material while grinding. (See Figure 12.4) 4.After grinding is complete, turn disposer off and run water for at least 15 seconds to flush drain line. DO... • Grind food waste with minimum cold water flow of 5.7 liters per minute (1-1/2 G.P.M.). • Grind hard material such as small bones and fruit pits to clean inside of grind chamber. • Grind citrus, melon rinds, vegetables, and coffee grounds. • After grinding, run water for at least 15 seconds to flush drain line. • Switch off or unplug the appliance before attempting to free a jammed rotor with an implement. • Maintain the area underneath the disposer of any objects to be sure you have access to the disposer reset button. DON’T... • Don’t use hot water when grinding food waste (although hot water can be drained into disposer between grinding periods). • Don’t turn off water or disposer until grinding is completed and only sound of motor and water running is heard. • Don’t grind large amounts of egg shells or fibrous materials like corn husks, artichokes, etc., to avoid possible pipe blockage. • Don’t grind non-food waste of any kind. • Don’t use this appliance to dispose of hard materials such as glass and metal. • Don’t ever pour fats, oils or grease down the sink – it will block your drains and the sewerage system. Don’t waste food. Nearly a quarter of the food we buy is thrown away untouched: salad, bread and cakes and fruit head the list. Three tips to stop waste and save you money: only buy, or cook, the portions you need for the meal; check the fridge and cupboard for food you haven’t eaten–make it your next snack or freeze it; and make sure you leave that food off your next shopping list! CLEANING DISPOSER Over time, grease/food particles may accumulate in the grind chamber and baffle, causing an unpleasant odor. To clean the disposer: 1.Turn off disposer and disconnect power supply. 2.Reach through sink opening and clean underside of splash baffle and inside upper lip of grind chamber with scouring pad. 3.Place stopper in sink opening and fill sink halfway with warm water. 4.Mix 60 ml baking soda with water. Turn disposer on and remove stopper from sink at same time to wash away loose particles. RELEASING DISPOSER JAM If the motor stops while the disposer is operating, the disposer may be jammed. To release jam: 1.Turn disposer power and water off. 2.Insert one end of the self-service wrenchette intothe center hole on the bottom of the disposer (see Figure 12.5). Work the wrenchette back and forth until it turns one full revolution. Remove wrenchette. 3.Reach into the disposer with tongs and remove object(s). Allow the disposer motor to cool for 3 - 5 minutes and lightly push red reset button on the disposer bottom (see Figure 12.6).
