Question about Ace Hardware InSinkErator Badger 5, 1/2 HP Garbage Disposal
If I understand correctly, your garbage disposal came loose from the sink basket.
The darker blue arrows point to the connector disc.
The connector disc rotates freely when garbage disposal is not connected to sink basket.
The trick is to lift the disposal into place with one hand.
Push up hard while keeping disposal lined up with sink basket.
Then use other hand to rotate connector until it catches on sink basket.
Disconnect the tubular drain pipes because these pipes will have to be re-sealed.
The electric wire and dishwasher hose can stay connected
If you are disabled or impaired, use a car jack or bottle jack to lift the disposal ... but go slow and don't lift the whole sink.
Now to reconnect the tubular drain pipes.
Disassemble these pipes.
Clean the pipes and washers.
If washers are rubber, buy new ones.
If washers are plastic, re-use old ones after they are cleaned.
I use rectoseal on all tubular washers when installing pipes under the sink.
Coat the washers with plenty of rectoseal and the tubular drain pipes will seal first-time with no leaks.
