Congratulations on purchasing your new food waste disposer. Your food waste disposer features bioshield anti-microbial for odor protection, a torque master balanced grading system, a remarkable splash guard, and a three bolt mounting system for easy replacement. It features a powerful 1 and 1/4 horsepower motor, the largest horsepower available on the market. In this video, we'll demonstrate how to install your new food waste disposer. Step one, preparation-- before getting started, turn off the electrical power for the food waste disposer and dishwasher if needed at the circuit breaker or fuse box. If you're connecting the disposer to a dishwasher, the outlet hose should be 7/8 inch in diameter. If not, a separate dishwasher connector kit will need to be purchased. For this installation, it is recommended you have the following tools available. If you are installing your disposer onto an existing 3 bolt mount system, you may skip step number two. The 3 bolt mount easily attaches to pre-existing mounts in seconds. Reduce your installation time by keeping your mounting system in place. Twist and lock your new disposer onto the ring. Then simply reattach plumbing connections. Step two, installation of the new mounting assembly-- remove the mounting assembly from the disposer by turning the lower mounting ring clockwise and placing it upside down on a soft surface. Using a screwdriver, loosen the three screws on the upper mounting ring. Use of flathead screwdriver to remove the retainer ring from the sink flange. Then remove the mounting ring, back up flange, and fiber gasket from the sink flange, and set them aside in the same order for reassembling. The mounting assembly accommodates a sink up to a 1/2 inch thick. If your sink is greater than a 1/2 inch, an extended length sink flange is required. Clean the area around the sink drain. Apply plumber's putty around the bottom of the sink flange. Place the same flange in the center of the drain opening. Press firmly and evenly around the flange for a good seal. Do not move or rotate the sink flange once it's seated, or the seal could be broken. Place a rag over the sink flange. Then put a heavy weight on top to hold the sink flange in place. Slide the fiber gasket, back up flange, and mounting ring onto the bottom of the flange, and hold them in place. Hold the retainer ring open, and place it into the groove on the flange so it locks in place. Tighten the screws on the upper mounting ring evenly and firmly. Take care not to over-tighten. Step three-- attach the discharge elbow or appropriate connections for your installation to the disposer drain outlet. Begin by locating the provided discharge elbow. Next, insert the elbow into the discharge outlet. Connect the elbow by inserting it into the drain outlet coupling. Locate the spring clamp. Move it over the drain outlet and release the clamp when it's over the shallow groove of the drain coupling. Pull on the drain elbow and make sure it's secure. If there is a dishwasher, use a wooden dowel or steel punch to knock out the plug-in the dishwasher inlet. Do not use a screwdriver or sharp instrument. Remove the plug and throw it away. Step four-- connect the disposer to the mounting assembly. If your disposer came with the silver guard accessory, place it around the throat of the disposer, behind the bolts. This powerful magnetic attachment will help stop metal objects from falling into the disposer and causing damage. Align the discharge elbow with a drain piping. Then align the tabs on the lower ring with the ramps on the mounting ring and turn until tight. Then insert a flathead screwdriver in a tab for additional leverage, and turn until all three tabs are engaged. Connect the discharge elbow to the drain line. If there's a dishwasher, connect the dishwasher drain hose with a clamp. Tighten the clamp, using a flathead screwdriver. A 7/8 inch inside diameter hose will put directly to the disposer. If the hose size is different, use a dishwasher connector kit, sold separately. Make sure all connections are secure. Then run water and check for any leaks. Remove any excess plumber's putty from around the sink drain. Make sure the removable splash guard is seated in the sink flange. Your food waste disposal operates on 110 to 120 volts, 60 hertz, which is standard in most homes. Using any other voltage or hertz will adversely affect performance. If you have any questions or are unsure, check with a qualified electrician. Plug in the preinstalled power cord, and turn the power back on. Congratulations. You've just completed a full installation of your new food waste disposer.
