Default GE Disposal Removal
Model Number: GFC520F   Brand: GE   Age: 5 - 10 years   

Appliance Parts from AppliancePartPros.com


My GE garbage disposal (GFC520F) is leaking from the gasket between the sink and the mounting ring. However, I have been unable to disconnect/remove the disposal from under the sink. Regardless of how much pressure I apply the disposal will not turn to release itself from the mounting ring it is locked to. Is there a trick to this? What am I doing wrong? Any suggestions?

Thanks.

Default thanks for the reply

Thanks for the instruction manual. I actually have the original manual and instructions, and have read them. My problem is related to the disposal unit not coming free from the metal locking ring. When I attempt to turn the disposal the quarter turn counter clockwise the whole unit (disposal, mounting ring together) just turns. I cant seem to get the disposal to turn independently from the metal mounting ring. Is there a trick to this?

Thanks again

Not really. Every time it happened, we have to find out some specific way out.

My disposal is just turning freely from the mounting ring, how can I make that quarter turn it is stuck?
