Cleaning and Maintenance
Before any maintenance or cleaning is carried
out, you must DISCONNECT the appliance from
the electricity supply.
The disposer is self-cleaning, but you can flush it
by filling the sink with cold water, turning on the
disposer and removing the plug. While the water
is draining through the disposer, allow the tap to
continue running. When the sink is empty, your
disposer will be clean.
Removable splash guard
If you need to remove or replace the splash guard,
simply pull the guard out from the top. To replace
the guard, insert it into the flange.
