CONNECT
DISPOSER
TO MOUNTING
ASSEMBLY
Clear any objects from inside the disposer grind chamber before mounting the disposer.
_WARNING
Personal injury:
Do not position your head or body under disposer;
unit could fall during installation.
1. Position disposer with three mounting tabs (A) aligned in position to slide over mounting
tracks (B) (see Figure 10-1 ).
2. Lift disposer, insert top end (mounting gasket) into mounting assembly, and turn lower
mounting ring to right (with wrenchette or screwdriver) until mounting tabs lock over ridges
(C) on mounting ring tracks (see Figure 10-2). (MAKE SURE ALL THREE MOUNTING TABS
ARE LOCKED OVER RIDGES.)
Disposer will now hang by itself.
ATTACH DISCHARGE
TUBE TO WASTE
DRAIN LINE
Determine appropriate
installation based upon new installation or plumbing configuration: Two-
Bolt Discharge Tube or One-Bolt Discharge Tube.
l
Property Damage
Do not use thread sealants or pipe dope; they may harm the disposer and
cause property damage.
Two-Bolt
Discharge
Tube installation (Preferred
Two-Bolt
Installation)
If replacing existing disposer, remove and discard existing discharge tube and gasket. (Unit will
not seal properly with old discharge tube.)
1. Slide metal flange (A) over discharge tube (B) (see Figure 11-1).
2. Insert rubber gasket (C) into discharge outlet. Secure metal flange and discharge tube to
disposer with two bolts (D).
3. Rotate disposer so that discharge tube is aligned with drain trap. (To prevent leaks, do not
pull or bend discharge tube to drain trap.) If discharge tube is too long, cut off as much of
tube as necessary with hacksaw (make sure cut is straight and clean.) If discharge tube is
too short, you can purchase an extension from a hardware store. (Disposer must remain in
vertical position to prevent vibration.)
4. Place P-trap nut, then beveled washer (not supplied) on bottom of discharge tube and tighten
on drain trap. (if you have a double sink, use separate drain traps for both sides.)
5. Ensure lower mounting ring is securely locked over mounting flange ridges.
Although the supplied Discharge Tube is preferred, a straight discharge may be used (see Figure
1 1-2). Slide metal flange (A) over straight discharge tube (B, not supplied), install rubber gasket
(C) into discharge outlet, and secure metal flange and straight discharge tube to disposer with
two bolts (D).
One-Bolt
Discharge Tube installation (Preferred
One-Bolt
installation)
1. Slide metal flange (A) over discharge tube (B) (see Figure 11-3).
2. Rubber gasket (C) must be installed on top end of discharge tube. Secure metal flange and
discharge tube to disposer with bolt (D).
3. Rotate disposer so that discharge tube is aligned with drain trap. (To prevent leaks, do not
pull or bend discharge tube to drain trap.) If discharge tube is too long, cut off as much of
tube as necessary with hacksaw (make sure cut is straight and clean.) if discharge tube is
too short, you can purchase an extension from a hardware store. (Disposer must remain in
vertical position to prevent vibration.)
4. Place P-trap nut, then beveled washer (not supplied) on bottom of discharge tube and tighten
on drain trap. (If you have a double sink, use separate drain traps for both sides.)
5. Ensure lower mounting ring is securely locked over mounting flange ridges.
Although the supplied Discharge Tube is preferred, a straight discharge may be used. Slide
metal flange over straight discharge tube (not supplied), install rubber gasket onto discharge
tube, and secure metal flange and straight discharge tube to disposer with one bolt (reference
Figure 11-2).
