Question about Ace Hardware InSinkErator Badger 5, 1/2 HP Garbage Disposal
To remove the diposal, do this:
Turn off the power to the disposal first
Under the sink disconnect the wiring to the disposal - this requires removing a cover and usually a couple of wire nuts. Then loosen and pull the connector out, replacing the wiring nuts after you do that. Some disposals are pluigged in under the sink. If your is, just unplug it.
Under the sink, disconnect the drain pipes to the trap
To remove the disposal, there is a keeper ring with three loops protruding from the sides directly under the sink. Note the position of the disposal under the sink so when you put it back, the drain pipes will fit again. Insert a short phillips screwdriver or pin punch into one of the loops. Support the disposal under it, then rotate the ring counterclockwise. The disposal should come loose. Be careful - they can be a little heavy.
