Question about Ace Hardware InSinkErator Badger 5, 1/2 HP Garbage Disposal
The mouth of sink open is too small to get vice grips onto spoon.
There are 2 ways to proceed.
1) Put big screwdriver in crack to see if you can make opening wider so spoon comes out.
2) Remove disposal from below and then grab spoon with vice grips.
Instructions to remove:
-Loosen 2 nuts on p-trap, and take off p-trap.
-Don't move other tubular pipes. Any tubular pipe that moves will have to be disassembled and cleaned and reassembled.
-Disposal is attached with steel ring. Rotate ring to remove.
-Disposal will drop down where you can work on it.
If spoon does not come loose, then buy same brand disposal and replace without replacing sink basket.
-Reattach disposal by lifting disposal into place with one hand and use other hand to set ring.
-Ring catches in 3 places. All three catches have to be in place.
-If disposal is too hard to hold while moving ring, then use bottle jack to lift disposal. Be sure to put board on bottom of disposal so jack doesn't punch a hole in disposal.
-Tubular pipe parts have to be cleaned. Rubber washers are generally replaced. Plastic washers are re-used. Tapered part of plastic washer goes away from nut.
-We use good slap of rectoseal on all tubular wai have a spoon jammed between the teeth, I tried - geno_3245_210.jpge they seal
