USER MAINTENANCE INSTRUCTIONS
RELEASING DISPOSER JAM
This disposer is equipped with a Jam-Sensor Circuit™ that
will prevent jams while grinding virtually any food material. In the unlikely event that the disposer is jammed,
release it by following these steps.
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:
If motor stops while disposer is operating, disposer may
be jammed. To release jam:
1. Turn off disposer and disconnect power supply.
2. Place stopper in sink opening and fill sink halfway with
warm water.
3. Mix 1/4 cup baking soda with water. Turn disposer on
and remove stopper from sink at same time to wash
away loose particles.
4. Remove Quiet Collar Sink Baffle and clean by hand or
in dishwasher. Do not operate disposer without Quiet
Collar Sink Baffle in place.
1. Turn off disposer and water.
2. Insert one end of self-service wrenchette into center hole on bottom of disposer (see Figure A). Work
wrenchette back and forth until it turns one full revolution. Remove wrenchette.
3. Reach into disposer with tongs and remove object(s).
Allow disposer motor to cool for 3 - 5 minutes, then
lightly push red reset button on disposer bottom (see
Figure B). (If motor remains inoperative, check service
panel for tripped circuit breakers or blown fuses.)
Disposers may also be cleaned with Disposer Care®. This
