First disconnect power at breaker. Next disconnect power cord from the bottom side of disposal. Next, loosen large nut holding disposal in place under sink. Next, you will loosen bolts for frame and the rest is just removing small parts. The first 3-4 steps are crucial especially with power. You will find during this process the plumbing which is attached to a parallel plastic pipe. You will want to disconnect this right after you disconnect the power cord from the disposal. This will give you room to work a little more freer.

My garbage disposal does not have an electric on off switch it is turned on and off by inserting the drain stopper and removing it, I have removed the drain stopper but the in sinkerator continues to run.

Hi,

The switch is bad that the stopper hits to activate the disposal...


Here is a tip that I wrote that will help you to figure out what is going on with your garbage disposal and why it is not working.

My quiet partner 4 will no longer drain, I recently replaced my garbage disposal & the problem began after that.

There is a plug you have to remove on the garbage disposal where you hook up the washer drain hose.

Check the instructions with the disposal.

You'll have to deinstall the garbage disposal, remove this plug and reinstall.
