Below are some step by step instructions to unclogging a unit and stripping it back so you can replace the parts of your sinkmaster unit if necessary.
Removal to Unclog a Unit
There may come a time that you need to unclog your unit. It happens to even the world’s top brands like Insinkerator for various reasons. You never know when your child might perform a disappearing act with their toy down the drain!
• First you need to turn the power off buy unplugging the unit or shutting off the circuit breaker, depending on how your disposer is hooked up.
• Remove the panel cover that you will find where the wire enters. This is easily done with a screwdriver. Now, prior to touching any inside terminals, make sure there is not power going to them by using a Voltmeter. If there is no power, proceed to unscrew the terminal and pull the wires out.
• Place a large bowl or bucket underneath the Sink master to catch any spillage. Carefully unscrew the hose clamp that is holding the line to the dishwasher in place. Go ahead and pull this line right off the nipple of the disposal.
• Use your screwdriver to take off the screws that are currently holding the outlet for the drain in place.
• Use a pair of pliers and then loosen the coupling that is holding the line of the drain in place and pull this out through the hole on the unit’s side.
• Disconnect the disposal from its mounting bracket. If you happen to be connected with a snap-ring, insert a flat screwdriver and snap right between the flange and the snap-ring.
• Twist the disposal in a counterclockwise direction to remove it away from the sink. You may need to loosen the clamp that you will find on the side if you happen to have a three-bold assembly. You can do this by simply turning the handle also in a counterclockwise direction.
• The last step to removing Sinkmaster garbage disposal parts is to pull downward and lift the edge away from the mount. Twist slightly to pull away from the clamp and then to remove completely, pull straight down.
