    thanks, my problem is there is no indentation or other variation in either the flange or the ring to allow me leeway-so all the prying has been to no avail; there doesn't seem to be a way to get the ring off the flange! logically I know there has to be a way.. and actually mine is an older model- a badger 1 if that matters

  • hoff13s Apr 13, 2009

    Thanks so much- the actual snap ring had not been visible and the screw driver hadn't found it; but your clues and the diagram (much better than the one with the new unit) solved the problem. the old unit is now removed!

    Now to make sense of the new one. it's a Waste King legend series 9980 and based on what we learned removing the old i think installation will go alright once i get past one small thing- which is removing the flange, etc from the unit in the 1st place. if you have any clues on that would be great.

    also wondering-how important is it to use the plumber's putter around the flange base? the guy at OSH said it didn't matter and he usually installed without that.

    That manual is for a bager 1 also. If you remove the screws then you can rotate the whole thing till you see a split in the ring pry from one side of the split from there. Also I know that the flange can get stuck on the ring at some times you just need to work it free. It will take some muscle. Also make sure the is no plumbers putty that fell to flange and got hard that will make it hard to remove also.

    Also with all screws removed stick hand in hole and squeeze the to parts together as if holding to down on sink and pushing flange to bottom of sink.

    Ok to remove flange from new wast king you twist the metel with a notch in it a 1/4 turn counter clock wise if you look real good you will see how it comes off. As for the plumbers putty you do need it or you will get a leak between the sink and the disposal and you will have to start over. I will try to find manual so you can see. Do not see the 9000 model though just 8000

Badger 5 EX 3/4 Hp In sink Erator


the disposal is attache to the button of th sink by means of ring and clamps.
take a look how th ekitchen sink is mounted. the disposal is mounted the same way. you may need to get new rubber seal and a new plate for the buttom, where the screws is. you can take the ring to the near home center of plumbing store, and get a replacement.

you can use "plumber's putty", or " goop" .thing else will keep the water out.
