REMOVING YOUR OLD DISPOSER,
FIRST, TURN OFF ELECTRICAL POWER at the service panel (fuse box or circuit breaker box). If the mounting
is the same as your new disposer's mounting, you can use the existing mounting. Follow instructions A through E,
Step 2, then go on to Step 10.

Use a pipe wrench to disconnect
the drain line where it attaches to
the disposer discharge tube.

tF YOUR OLD DISPOSER HAS A
DIFFERENT MOUNTING THAN
YOUR NEW ONE, GO ON TO INSTRUCTION C.
If your old disposer has the same
mounting as your new one, insert
the end of your "wrenchette" or
screwdriver into the right side of
one of the disposer mounting ring
lugs at the top of the disposer.
Then, turn the "wrenchette"
or
screwdriver to the left (counterclockwise) until the lug lines up
with one of the sink mounting
assembly screws.
Nuts
Now,
use
a screwdriver
to
remove ground wire. Remove the
wire nuts from the power wires.
Separate
the disposer
power
wires
from
the
cable
wires.
Loosen the screw(s) on the cable
clamp and remove the cable from
the disposer.
If your old disposer has a different
mounting than your new one,
follow steps F and G. Otherwise
go on to Step 3.
If your old disposer has a different
mounting than your new one, use
a pliers or adjustable wrench to
remove the nuts on the mounting
ring. Then remove old disposer.
(Some disposers have to be
removed by taking off a clamp or
by twisting
the disposer
to
remove it from its mounting. Easy
to figure out.)
CAUTION: Be sure to hold the
disposer with one hand while performing this step or it may fall
when the mounting ring is disconnected from the sink mounting assembly. GO TO INSTRUCTION D.
Once the disposer is off, turn it
upside down and remove the
electrical plate.
i
Finally, remove
the old sink
sleeve by pushing it up through
the sink hole.
Loosen screws and remove old
mounting ring and back-up ring.
You may need a hammer to loosen
assembly parts.

CLEANING
YOUR youSINK'S
NOTE: In case of new construction,
may skip this step.
The cutting elements on your old disposer were probably
worn and not grinding the waste completely. Your drain line
may be partially blocked, We recommend cleaning the line
before connecting your new Kenmore disposer.

You can do the job yourself with a drain auger. Remove the
drain trap and, using the auger, clean out the horizontal drain
pipe that runs from the trap to the main waste pipe.

First, check inside the
disposer grinding chamber to remove any objects

Turn the disposer around to attach the discharge tube.
Some models use a rubber washer that must be assembled to the discharge tube before putting the metal
flange over the discharge tube, see 'D'. Secure metal
flange using the edge tab on the flange and screw. On
other models, put the rubber washer in the discharge
tube opening. Slip the metal flange over the discharge
tube. Using the screw(s) provided, attach the flange to
disposer, see 'E'.
In D. install the discharge tube gasket onto
the discharge tube. Gasket must be installed as
shown to assure a leak-proof installation. In E.

then the disposer to avoid a possible drain blockage. After grinding is complete, the disposer and
water may be turned off.
Depending upon your particular installation, it may
be necessary to allow a water flush after grinding
to completely clear the horizontal drain line. The _
water flow time after grinding will depend on the
quantity of food waste that was ground, and the
length of the horizontal drain line. Ground food

caustic; flushing will pass such material into the
drain line without disposer damage.
DON'T use hot water when grinding food waste.
However, hot water can be drained into the
disposer between grinding periods.
DON'T turn off motor or water until grinding is
completed and only a motor and water sound is
heard.
DON'T become alarmed if a brown discoloration
appears on the face of the grinding disc. This is
normal. It is a surface discoloration only and will
not affect the life or performance of the disposer.
DON'T grind extremely fibrous material like corn
husks, artichokes, etc. to avoid possible drain
blockage.
II
REMEMBER THESE OPERATING INSTRUCTIONS WHEN USING YOUR DISPOSER.
- DO NOT INSERT HAND INTO THE DISPOSER.
- IF THE DISPOSER JAMS, OR THE MOTOR
PROTECTOR
TRIPS, DISCONNECT
THE
POWER TO THE DISPOSER BEFORE FREEING THE JAM, OR RESETTING THE MOTOR
PROTECTOR.
WARNING
- USE THE STOPPERS IN THE DRAIN/GRIND
POSITION WHILE GRINDING TO MINIMIZE
POSSIBLE EJECTION OF MATERIAL.
Stoppers are in drain/grind position.
If you should encounter an objectionable odor
coming from your disposer, it may be the water
itself, which in some areas develops a slight odor
at times. Or it may be coming from bits of food
waste left inside the disposer, because the unit
was turned off before the grind cycle was completed or not enough water was used. Try this
remedy, after all remaining food waste is disposed of inside the unit:
Heat a large pan of water (approximately 3 to 4
quarts). To this add one-half cup of baking soda.
Mix in thoroughly so it is completely dissolved.
When water reaches approximate boiling point,
turn disposer on and pour heated mixture into
sink. This hot, swirling, treated water will then
flush the inside of the disposer housing.

INSTRUCTIONS
Trouble Shooting
Loud noises while your disposer is operating
are usually caused by dropping metal objects into the disposer. To correct this, turn
off the disposer switch and water. After
grinding disc has stopped turning, investigate. Remove object by reaching into unit
with tongs.
Motor stops while your disposer is operating. This can be caused by overloading the
unit. First, check the cause of the overload - often some foreign material is in the
disposer. To avoid personal injury turn
off the disposer switch and water. Remove
the object as previously explained. TO
RESTART THE MOTOR: wait 3 to 5 minutes, then push in on the small red reset
button located on the bottom of your disposer
(Fig. 1). If motor remains inoperative, check
your Service Panel and replace any blown
fuses, or look for a tripped circuit breaker.
NOTE: If water does not drain as readily as
you think it should, and food waste tends to
float or take too long to grind, don't reduce
water flow to solve this problem. It is very
likely that the drain line is partially clogged
and should be cleaned with a drain auger. A
blocked drain may also cause food waste to
drain into the dishwasher. Like any precision
machine, your disposer was built to perform
a particular job. If unusual demands are placed on it, service interruptions are possible.
These service interruptions, mentioned
below,, are usually not serious and in most
cases, can be remedied without calling a
service technician.
To Save The Cost of a Service Call to Free a Jam.
To save the cost of a service call to free a jam.
The accidental entry of foreign material will cause any
disposer to jam occasionally. To free jammed material,
follow these steps to avoid persona! injury:
1. Turn off disposer and shut off cold water.
2. Insert one end of yo0r Self-Service Wrenchette provided with your disposer, into the center hole of the bottom of the disposer as shown. (Fig. 2).
3. Work the Wrenchette back and forth until it moves
freely for at least one complete revolution. Remove
foreign object with tongs. Remove Wrenchette before
restarting disposer.
4, Wait 3 to 5 minutes to allow disposer motor to cool and
then push red reset button, (Fig. 1).Before pressing red
reset button be sure the wall switch is In the off
position and on batch feed models remove the
stopper from the run position.
Your Self-Service Wrenchette will free virtually every jam
that may occur due to foreign objects entering the
disposer. Very rarely, however, a piece of metal (bobby
pin, thumb tack, paper clip, silverware, etc.) causes a
jammed
condition
too tight for your Self-Service
Wrenchette to handle. To free this type of jam, a pry bar or
tool must be used.
Be sure wall switch is turned off. Remove as much food
waste from the disposer as is possible with tongs. Use a
flashlight to determine the direction the unit was running
at the time of the jam+
