FRIGIDAIRE DISHWASHER & INSINKERATOR DISPOSAL

I USE THE DISPOSAL FREQUENTLY, IF I DON'T USE THE DISHWASHER FOR ABOUT 2 WEEKS I GET A RANCID SMELL FROM IT EVEN IF I LEAVE THE DOOR OPEN. COULD THE DISPOSAL BE LEAKING BACK INTO THE WASHER?

THANKS RICH

Sounds like your waste pipes aren,t connected properly.You need a water trap (u bend) between the dishwasher and the main waste pipe from the sink. Any decent plumber should be able to fix in less than an hour.Cheers Derek.

My Badger 5 is just humming and I smell a bad burning smell.


Either the Shredding Plate or the motor has burned out. In your case, it sounds like the latter. The motor is not repairable, you have to buy a new unit complete.

I forgot to open the dishwasher hole when installing. I don;t have the instructions and I can't figure out what I am supposed to do. It seems solid and I don;t see anything removable


If you disconnect the dishwasher hose from the disposal and peek inside the disposal where the hose was, you'll see that it's blocked by a piece of plastic. It's premolded into the inner chamber but that portion is breakable. Stick a screwdriver or something into the hole and give it a whack. If that piece end up inside the disposal's main compartment, you'll need to get it out. You could turn the disposal upside down if you haven't already installed it, but you did.

Dishwasher does not seem to drain completely. The water becomes rancid smelling.


be sure the screen under the botton spray arm is free of food particles. You may need to remove it to clean it. Make sure the drain hoses are not kinked.If this doesn't help the problem, you will need to pull the dishwasher and disconnect the drain hose from both ends and flush out debris at the sink. You may need to replace the drain valve

UNsermount sink with waste disposal


The easy mount disposal has a ring the (sort of) screws onto the insinkerator sink drain - the thing that is labeled insinkerator when you look down into the sink.

If this is a new install on a new sink, I recommend the EZ mount model. If there is already the sink drain (thing mentioned above) labeled insinkerator, you may be able to simply attach the new disposal to the existing drain ring.

Also: If you have a dishwasher to connect, this is a great time to install the "air gap valve" (available for almost free at any hardware store.)

Foul odor coming from insinkerator disposal


the only thing that should be used to clean a disposal is "Ice" anything else will / could cause several different problems. Run the water for about 10 seconds, turn the disposal on, put a few handfulls of ice down the drain, when the ice is gone, leave the water running for about 20 seconds. This both cleans the unit and sharpens the blades..
