shock. Check with a qualified electrician or serviceman if you are in doubt as to whether the appliance is properly grounded. Do not modify the plug provided with the appliance if it will not fit the outlet, have a proper outlet installed by a qualified electrician.

WarninG – When using electrical appliances, basic precautions should always be followed, including

the following:

1.

2.

3.

4.

5.

6.

Read all instructions before using the appliance.

To reduce the risk of injury, close supervision is necessary 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 a long wooden object such as a wooden spoon or the wooden handle of a broom or mop.

When attempting to remove objects from a waste disposer use long-handled tongs or pliers. If the disposer is magnetically actuated, non-magnetic tools should be used.

7.

To reduce the risk of injury by materials that may be expelled by a waste disposer, 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, tin cans, aluminum foil or utensils; hot grease or other hot liquids; whole corn husks.

8.

When not operating a disposer, leave the stopper in place to reduce the risk of objects falling into the disposer.

DO NOT operate disposer unless splash guard is in place. 9.

10.

For proper grounding instructions see the ELECTRICAL

CONNECTION portion of this manual.

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.

If your old mount is the same 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.

B.

Use a pipe wrench to disconnect drain line where it attaches to disposer discharge tube (see A).

Remove disposer from sink flange by turning mount ring to the left clockwise (see B). 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 B). Some disposers may require the removal or loosening of nuts from the mount screws (see C). Some disposers may require the removal of a clamp.

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. If your disposer is hard wired (metal shielded cable not utilizing a wall plug), complete steps C and D. If you utilize a plug-in cord, go on to step E.

C.

D.

Use screwdriver to remove green ground wire. Remove wire nuts from black and white power wires and separate disposer wires from power cord wires. Loosen screws on cord clamp and separate cord from disposer.

E.

When disposer is removed, turn up side down and remove electrical cover plate (see D).

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 1E). 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: Unless you have a new home, 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.

disHWasHer COnneCtiOn

If you are utilizing a dishwasher, complete the following procedure.

A.

Using a blunt instrument (steel punch or wooden dowel), knock out entire plug (see A). Do not use a screwdriver or sharp instrument. When knockout plug falls into disposer, you may remove it or simply grind it up when the disposer is used.

This will not damage the disposer in any way, but may take some time to grind, over the course of several uses.

B.

Connect dishwasher hose using hose clamp. If hose size is different, you will need a Dishwasher Connector Kit (see

B). Make sure all plumbing connections are tight and in accordance with all plumbing codes and ordinances. Run water and check for leaks.

nOte: Pay close attention to the order of mount assembly parts, as they have been correctly

assembled by the factory.

A.

Disassemble the mounting assembly, as it has been shipped, by turning the sink flange assembly until the projections align with the notches in the lower mount ring and allow you to pull the sink flange up and out of the remaining lower mount assembly. Note the sequence of these parts as they are stacked to identify each part. Unscrew the 3 mount screws until the mounting ring can be moved to the top of the back up flange. Remove the snap ring with a screw driver.

B.

Keep these assembled parts together and set aside. Before you connect the disposer to the mount assembly under the sink. Make sure the lower mounting is in place and the hush cushion is engaged properly to the top of the hopper.

C.

Be sure your sink is clean. Pack the underside rim of the sink flange with plumber’s putty. Position the sink flange so it is centered as you look into your sink. Push the sink flange firmly into the sink opening to make a good seal. DO NOT move or rotate the sink flange once seated or the seal may be broken.

D.

Take the remaining portion of the mount assembly, as it was set aside and make sure that the rubber gasket is on top of the protector ring. From under the sink, while holding the sink flange firmly with one hand, line up the notches in the mount ring with the projections of the sink flange. Slide the mount assembly up onto the sink flange, past the projections and give the mount assembly a 1/4 turn, so that it will hang by itself (see D).

E.

Tighten the 3 mounting screws evenly with a screwdriver (see

E). DO NOT OVER-TIGHTEN! Trim off excess putty.

Before turning disposer off, let water and disposer run for approximately 15 seconds after shredding 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.

trOuBlesHOOtinG

Before seeking repair or replacement, we recommend that you review the following:

LOUD NOISES: (Other than those during grinding of small bones and fruit pits): These are usually caused by accidental entry of a spoon, bottle cap or other foreign object. To correct this, turn off electrical switch and water. After disposer has stopped.

UNIT DOES NOT START: Unplug power cord or turn either the wall switch or breaker box switch to “OFF” position, depending on your model and wiring configuration. Remove stopper and/or *splash guard. Check to see if turntable will rotate freely using a wooden broom handle. If turntable rotates freely, replace *splash guard and check re-set button to see if it has been tripped. Re-set button is red and located opposite discharge elbow, near the bottom (see A). Push button in until it clicks and remains depressed. If re-set button has not been tripped, check for shorted or broken wire connecting to disposer. Check electrical power switch, fuse box or circuit breaker. If wiring and electrical components are intact, the unit may have internal problems that require service or replacement.

* Splash guard not used on Top Control/Batch Feed unit.

IF TURNTABLE DOES NOT ROTATE FREELY: Turn off disposer, then check for any foreign object lodged between the turntable and grind ring. Dislodge object by rotating table with a wooden broom handle and remove object. (see B) If no foreign object is present, there may be internal problems.

LEAKS: If the unit leaks at the top, it may be due to:

1. Improper seating of sink flange (gasket centering, putty or

tightening).

2. Support ring not tightened properly.

3. Defective or improperly installed cushion mount. If unit

leaks at the waste elbow, leak may be due to improper

tightening of elbow flange screws.
