1. 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. Unplug
disposer.
If your old mount is the same type as the mount on your new disposer,
just reverse the assembly instructions found in section 3. 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 elbow (see 1A).
B. Remove disposer from sink flange by turning mount ring to
the left clockwise (see 1B). 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
screwdriver into one tube will provide additional leverage for
turning the mount ring (see 1B). Some disposers may require the
removal or loosening of nuts from the mount screws (see 1C).
Some disposers may require the removal of a clamp.
1A
Caution: Be sure to support the disposer while
performing this step or it may fall when the mounting
ring is disconnected from the mounting assembly.
C. 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 1D). 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.
IMPORTANT: 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.

Raise mount ring toward top of sink flange. Remove cushion mount. Remove mount
ring. You may want to practice installing the cushion mount at this point before you
are under the sink. See paragraph H. Also see the “Important Notice: Cushion Mount
Detail.”
Unscrew support ring from sink flange and remove fiber gasket. You are now left with
sink flange and rubber gasket.
The rubber gasket is used instead of plumbers putty or silicon
with stainless steel sinks. Other sinks will require putty.
If no putty is used, insert sink flange through rubber gasket into sink opening. Do not
rotate sink flange once it is seated.
3B
If you use putty instead of the gasket, form a ring around
underside of sink flange (see 3D). Insert flange into sink
opening, press down hard to squeeze out excess putty (see
3B). From under sink, trim off excess putty flush with bottom
edge of sink opening.
From underneath sink, slip fiber gasket onto exposed sink
flange. With arrows pointing up, screw support ring onto the sink flange, hand tighten
until the sink flange will not move. At this point you may want to insert stopper in sink
and fill with water to check sink flange seal and ensure there are no leaks.
Place mount ring over sink flange and hold in place while installing cushion mount
(large side down) so the groove on the inside of cushion mount fits over lip on sink
flange, similar to putting the lid on a plastic container (see 3E, 3F & 3G). Please read
important notice below.
The disposer must be installed so that the reset button is readily accessible.

7. OPERATING INSTRUCTIONS
The Anti-Jam Swivel Impellers make a clicking
sound as they initially 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 waste 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
D.
E.
disposer is actually increasing torque (grinding power) and is
operating under normal conditions.
Before turning disposer off, let water and disposer run for approximately 15 seconds after shredding or grinding stops. This assures
that all waste is thoroughly flushed through trap and drain.
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.
TIPS FOR SUCCESSFUL OPERATION
A.
B.
C.
Be sure disposer is empty before using your dishwasher so it may drain properly.
You may want to leave the stopper in the drain when not in use to prevent utensils and foreign objects from falling into the disposer.
Your disposer is ruggedly built to give you many years of trouble free service. It will handle all normal food wastes, but it will NOT grind or
dispose of such items as plastic, tin cans, bottle caps, glass, china, leather, cloth, rubber, string, clam and oyster shells, aluminum foil or
feathers.

sink without actuating disposer.
When medium sized slot in stopper base is lined up with the
switch plunger, water can drain, but tableware, etc., cannot
be accidentally dropped into disposer. We recommend
leaving the stopper in this position when not in use.
8. 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, bleach, or chemical drain cleaners into the disposer, as
they cause serious corrosion of metal parts. If used, resulting damage
can be easily detected and 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.
