I had a problem with that before. I just ask for help with the garbage collector to know what to do with it.

I am about to replace my badger 5 with an evolution excel.

The sink flange is the same in sink-erator quick mount system and the manufacturer states that it is not necessary to replace the flange.

My flange is 5 and a half years old, and I have never had a problem with it. But I figure if I am going to replace the unit, now would be the time to replace the flange. At the same time, if it ain't broke...

Anyone thoughts would be appreciated.

It is not part of the sink. Use either a blow dryer on hot or a propane torch to loosen the old flange. BE CAREFUL! Most all disposer sink drains are held in by a mounting collar & three screws going up through the disposer unit mounting ring. The sink flange/drain is screwed into the mounting collar from inside the sink,, which is mounted under the sink. I always run @ a half inch round bead of plumbers putty just under the sink flange where the brand name is stamped. Do not use a rubber ring in sink. Remove excess putty after tightening. Good luck. Always run water with unit on for a few seconds after food is down the drain to rinse out any acidic food residue.

I found on the web the following manual for removal and installation of In_Sink-Erator.

In my previous post I expressed confusion about a snap ring. My error. The manual makes it all clear. Posted: Monday, June 9, 2008 6:43:39 PM(UTC)

Sounds right to me, now that you've explained it. It is probably the starter winding that has burned out and not a failing cap since the power was left on until the breaker tripped more than once. Still, since caps are cheaper...

Tho it's still not working, it still feels better knowing why.

thx again

check warranty on your unit, but your start winding circuit is NG ( could be a start cap.. ) better to replace with a new unit ..

For those wanting to know.... there is a split ring on the pipe that fits in the top of the sink. It is hidden by the flange that has the tightening bolts that scew upward. This flange has a turned down edge to it that covers the splity ring that is actually below it, so just slide it up and expose the split ring and pry it off with a screwdriver. It really was simple once you had the diagram to look at!

Somebody anybody - tell me where to get the diagram RonOh is talking about. I need to remove my insinkerator. Check these symptoms out -
1. It hums but turns freely (it is not stuck).
2. If you manually spin it with the power on, it will start working.
3. When you turn the power off, it will not start again unless you manualy spin it up to speed.

any comments welcome - but I am thinking I could remove the disposal, take it apart and find something inside like the piece of that old dishrag that got caught in there a week ago.
