not pack chamber with waste. Place stopper back in sink opening. Run a strong flow
of cold water.
3. Turn on disposer by lifting stopper slightly and turning to left or right until disposer starts.
(See Figure B; Seal - Completely in, Drain - Lift 1/4 inch and turn, Start - Turn fully left
or right.)
4. After grinding is complete, turn disposer off by removing the stopper and allow water to run
for at least 15 seconds to flush drain line.
First turn on a moderate to strong
flow of cold water and then turn
on the disposer. Continue running
cold water for 15 seconds after
grinding is completed to flush the
drain line.
Grind hard materials such as small
bones, fruit pits, and ice. A scour-
ing action is created by the par-
ticles inside the grind chamber.
Grind peelings from citrus fruits to
freshen up drain smells.
Use a disposer cleaner, degreaser,
or deodorizer as necessary to
relieve objectionable odors caused
by grease build-up.
Don't pour grease or fat down your disposer or any
drain. It can build up in pipes and cause drain
Put grease in a jar or can and dispose
in the trash.
Don't use hot water when grinding food waste. It
is OK to drain hot water into the disposer between
grinding periods.
Don't fill disposer with a lot of vegetable peels all at
once. Instead, turn the water and disposer on first
and then feed the peels in gradually.
Don't grind extremely fibrous materials like corn
husks, artichokes, etc., to avoid possible drain
Don't turn off disposer until grinding is completed
and only sound of motor and water is heard.
Don't be alarmed if a brown discoloration appears
on the face of the grinding disc. This is normal. It is
surface discoloration only and will not affect the life
or performance of the 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:
1. Turn off disposer and disconnect power supply.
2. Reach through sink opening and clean underside of splash baffle and inside upper lip of grind chamber
with scouring pad.
3. Place stopper in sink opening and fill sink halfway with warm water.
4. Mix 1/4 cup baking soda with water.Turn disposer on and remove stopper from sink at same time
to wash away loose particles.
If the motor stops during operation, the disposer may be jammed. To release jam:
1. Turn off the disposer and water.
2. Insert one end of the self-service wrenchette into the center hole on the bottom of the
disposer (see Figure C). Work the wrenchette back and forth until it turns one full revolution.
Remove wrenchette.
3. Reach into the disposer with tongs and remove object(s). Allow the
disposer motor to cool
for 3 - 5 minutes and lightly push red reset button on the disposer bottom (see Figure
C). (If the motor remains inoperative, check the service panel for tripped circuit breakers
or blown fuses.)
