WHAT CAN BE PUT IN YOUR DISPOSER
WARNING
INSTRUCTIONS PERTAINING TO RISK OF FIRE, ELECTRICAL SHOCK, OR INJURY TO PERSONS
(SAVE THESE INSTRUCTIONS)
When using electric appliances, basic precautions are always to be followed, including:
•Read all instructions before using the disposer.
•To reduce the risk of injury, close supervision is required when an appliance is used near children.
•Do not put fingers or hands into a waste disposer.
•Turn the power switch to the off position before attempting to clear a jam or remove an object from the disposer.
•When attempting to loosen a jam in a waste disposer, use the Jami-nator Button (model 1000) or the self-service
wrenchette as described below.
•When attempting to remove objects from a waste disposer, use long-handled tongs or pliers.
•To reduce the risk of injury by materials that are expellable by a waste disposer, do not put the following into a disposer:
a) Clam or oyster shells
b) Caustic drain cleaners or similar products
c) Glass, china, or plastic
d) Large (whole) bones
e) Metal (such as bottle caps, tin cans, or utensils)
f) Hot grease or other hot liquids.
•When not operating the disposer, leave the drain cover in place to reduce the risk of objects falling into the disposer.
•This product is designed to dispose of normal household food waste; inserting materials other than food waste into disposer is not recommended. 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).
•Do not dispose of the following in the disposer: paints, solvents, household cleaners and chemicals, automotive fluids,
or gasoline.
•Replace anti-splash baffle when worn to help prevent entry or ejection of material and splashing water.
•Before pressing reset button, attempting to clear jam, or removing objects from inside disposer, make sure disposer
power switch is turned off.
•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.
OPERATING INSTRUCTIONS
CONTINUOUS FEED MODELS
Continuous feed disposers have a one-piece cover/stopper that acts only as a
seal. A wall switch is used to turn the disposer on or off. To SEAL the cover for holding
water in the sink, press the cover firmly in the disposer opening. CAUTION: Do not operate the disposer with the cover in the SEAL position.
To Operate Disposer:
1. Remove the cover from sink opening and turn on a good flow of COLD water. (Cold
water hardens greasy substances, making it easy to grind them into tiny particles. Unlike
hot water, cold water keeps grease from sticking to the drain lines.) It is important and absolutely necessary that cold
water flows into the disposer while it is in operation. NEVER USE HOT WATER. If you have a double sink, make sure
the faucet points to the side where the disposer is installed.
2. Turn the wall switch to “ON” position.
3. Scrape food waste into disposer opening. The splash guard will reduce splashing. Mix soft and hard food waste items
for most efficient grinding.
4. Allow both the disposer and cold water to run for about 30 seconds after grinding action is completed. This will assure
that any bone slivers or other hard objects that could cause jams are flushed from the grind chamber. This will also assure proper flushing of the external drain line.
5. Turn the wall switch to “OFF” position.
8
Your disposer is designed to dispose of food wastes including bones, fruit and vegetable wastes, pits, egg shells, and
coffee grounds. Large pieces of food waste like melon rinds should be cut into smaller pieces before being put into the
disposer. Do not put items like glass, china, metal, tin cans, bottle caps, or oyster and clam shells into the disposer.
These items belong in the trash. Damage may result to both disposer and drain system if this type of trash is placed in
disposer.
DO...
•First turn on a moderate to strong flow of COLD WATER
and then turn on the disposer. Continue running cold
water for 15 seconds after grinding is completed to flush
the drain line.
•Grind hard materials such as small bones, fruit pits, and
ice. A scouring action is created by the particles inside the
grind chamber.
•Grind peelings from citrus fruits to freshen up drain
smells.
•Grind extremely fibrous materials like corn husks, artichokes, etc.
•Use a disposer cleaner, degreaser, or deodorizer as necessary to relieve objectionable odors caused by grease
buildup.
DON’T...
•Don’t pour grease or fat down your disposer or any drain. It can build
up in pipes and cause drain blockages. Put grease in a jar or can and
dispose in the trash.
•Don’t use HOT WATER when grinding food waste. It is OK to drain
hot water into the disposer between grinding periods.
•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.
•Don’t turn off disposer until grinding is completed and only sound of
motor and water is heard.
•Don’t be alarmed if a brown discoloration appears on the face of the
grind wheel. This is normal. It is surface discoloration only and will
not affect the life or performance of the disposer.
SEPTIC TANKS AND DISPOSERS
Food waste disposers can definitely be used with septic tanks. In fact, 20% of all disposers in use discharge their ground waste into a
septic tank. Food wastes from a disposer are actually beneficial to the bacterial acton which occurs in a septic tank. There are, however, some items which are normally ground in a disposer which should not be if connected to a septic tank. These inorganic materials, which are not bacteria digestible, are shells from eggs, shrimp, crabs, lobsters, or the like. Clam and oyster shells should not be
ground in any disposer. Putting those items through a disposer will cause the tank to fill quicker and require cleaning more often.
Recommended guidelines to accommodate all home usage including water bearing appliances like, clothes washers, dishwashers, and
disposers are:
Number of People in House
2 to 3
4 to 5
6 or more
Recommended Tank Capacity
750 gallons
1000 gallons
1500 gallons
In most cases, if there are no current septic tank problems, the addition of a disposer will not cause any problems. Many consider the
installation of a disposer like adding a new member to the family as it simply causes the tank to be cleaned about 10% more often every 6 to 7 years instead of every 7 to 8 years.
The best disposer for a septic tank is one which grinds the food into fine particles and adds as little water as possible. The VIKING
grind system is super fast and extremely efficient and is especially well suited to installation with a septic tank.
CAUTION
Regularly inspect disposer and plumbing fittings for water leaks, as water leaks can cause
property damage. Manufacturer cannot be held responsible for property damage as a result
of water leaks.

USER - MAINTENANCE INSTRUCTIONS
Operation With the Dishwasher
CLEANING DISPOSER
Over time, food particles may accumulate in the grind chamber and baffle. An odor from the disposer is usually a sign of
grease and food buildup, caused by insufficient water flow during and after disposer use. To clean 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 1/4 cup (.06 L) baking soda with water. Turn disposer on and remove stopper from sink at same time to wash away
loose particles.
WHAT IF YOUR DISPOSER JAMS
Jams of any nature are not considered a product deficiency and are not covered by in-warranty service or labor. Each time
the disposer is operated, the grind wheel moves in the opposite direction for greater efficiency and longer grinding element life. Should the disposer become jammed, the reversing action will help clear many jams.
If your disposer appears to be jammed, the grind wheel inside the upper housing will not turn freely. Check the following
procedure for each model before calling your dealer and possibly save the cost of a service call. Note: These disposers are
equipped with built-in overload protection. If disposer is jammed for more than 30 seconds, an overload protector automatically cuts off current to the motor, preventing motor damage. See below for instructions on how to reset.
Procedure for releasing jam:
1. Each time the disposer is operated, the grind wheel moves in the opposite direction. Should the disposer become
jammed, the reversing action will help clear many jams. Flip the wall switch off and on. Repeat several times if necessary to clear the jam.
2. The exclusive Power Plus Jam-inatorTM button, (only available on 1000 model), uses a solid state control to vibrate
the grind wheel back and forth 7000 times per minute. (See Figure B) This will eliminate almost any jam instantly.
When a difficult jam occurs, follow these steps:
-Make sure the wall switch is in the “ON” position and the disposer is “humming”.
-Press the Jam-inator button on the front side of the disposer and release DO NOT HOLD.
-If the disposer is still jammed, repeat pressing and releasing the button until
the disposer runs.
Figure B
CAUTION
Personal Injury
To prevent personal injury, turn disposer off before attempting to clear jams.
3. If the disposer is still jammed, turn off disposer and water. Insert one end of selfservice wrenchette into center hole on bottom of disposer (see Figure C). Work
wrenchette back and forth until it turns one full revolution. Remove wrenchette.
4. Reach into disposer with tongs and remove object(s). Allow disposer motor to cool
for 3 - 5 minutes and lightly push red reset button on the disposer bottom (see Figure C). (If motor remains inoperative, check service panel for tripped circuit breakers or blown fuses.)
If the disposer is jammed too long (approximately 9 seconds), the thermal overload
Figure C
protector will stop the motor (the motor will not hum). Wait 3 to 5 minutes, then press
the red reset button on the bottom of the disposer. If disposer has been running for
an extended period of time, you may have to wait 20 to 25 minutes for the motor to cool before pressing the red reset
button. Lightly push red reset button on bottom of the disposer.
10
If your dishwasher drains through your disposer, run the disposer for a short time before starting the dishwasher. This will
ensure that the disposer is free of any food waste. Such waste could cause a “backup” of the discharge water from the
dishwasher. DO NOT OPERATE THE DISPOSER WHILE THE DISHWASHER IS IN OPERATION. After operating the dishwasher, run the disposer for a short time to clean and flush all particles discharged by the dishwasher into the disposer
down the main drain line.
When the dishwasher is in operation, we recommend the cover be placed in the DRAIN position. The will eliminate the
possibility of water splash out.
Use Energy Wisely
A food waste disposer uses a negligible amount of energy. Total energy requirements associated with operating a food
waste disposer will be minimized by following the recommendations in this manual.
SERVICE INFORMATION
If your disposer should fail to operate:
1. Is the grind wheel jammed? Make sure grind wheel is free to rotate.
2. Is the circuit breaker open, or is fuse blown?
3. Is the disposer wall switch turned “ON”?
