Before seeking repair or replacement, we recommend that you review the following:
(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, remove *splash guard, remove
object with long handled tongs, and replace *splash guard.
UNIT DOES NOT START:
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
8A). 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.
