FOOD WASTE DISPOSER INSTALLATION, CARE & USE MANUAL
Food waste disposers provide an environmentally responsible alternative to transporting food waste to landfills. 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.
TOOLS & MATERIALS YOU WILL NEED:
Slotted Screwdriver, Adjustable Pliers, Safety Glasses
TOOLS, MATERIALS, AND ACCESSORIES YOU MAY NEED:
Phillips Screwdriver, Drain Auger, 9.5 mm Electrical Clamp, Wire Nuts (2), 38 mm Drain Trap, 33 mm Hole Drill, Hammer, Hacksaw, Water Hose

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.

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). (If
the motor remains inoperative, check the service panel for
tripped circuit breakers or blown fuses.)
