Replacing a leaky disposal with a new one
Model Number: GFC 1000-02 Brand:
More than 10 years
I had a new sink and sink flange installed last year and the exisiting garbage disposal was reconnected. I want to remove the current disposal and reconnect a new one without fussing with the sink flange. I'm pretty handy, but have never replaced a disposal unit.
Since I have the original installation instructions that came with the unit, can the disposal be removed by reversing the installation instructions - meaning, by inserting a screwdriver into something called the, "tightening slot" on the mounting ring and turning the mount ring and disposal clockwise until the unlock position is achieved.
Similarly, the new unit should reconnect with a new fiber gasket, support and mounting rings, and cushion mount in the opposite manner, right?
Thank you in advance for your assistance.
