The following procedures will help you operate and InSinkerator food service disposer properly. First, let’s discuss what should and shouldn’t be placed into the disposer. Items that can be placed into the disposer consist of fruits, vegetables, meat, poultry dairy products, breads and grain products, bones and seafood. Items that should not be placed into the InSinkerator disposer consist of large amounts of string and fibrous materials such as artichokes, pineapple tops, corn husks as well as oyster shells as these items may cause drain line clogs. It is also recommended to avoid silverware, soda cans, glass, lids, plastic wrap, latex gloves and corrosive chemicals. Now we’re ready to operate the disposer. If this is a new installation make sure there is no construction debris in the disposer grind chamber. Do not preload the disposer with food waste prior to starting. Push the start button on the control panel to turn on the disposer and start water flowing into the disposer. Feed food waste into the disposer in a steady continuous flow. This food waste is ground into small particles in the disposer grind chamber. The ground food waste is then transferred through the plumbing into the main sewer line and ends up at the waste water treatment plant for processing. After all food waste is flushes away, allow the disposer to run for 30-60 seconds to clear itself before pushing the stop button on the control center to stop the unit. If a disposer should experience a jam, the disposer overload will trip. To free a jam follow these steps: Turn the control off and if equipped turn on the disconnect switch. Reach into the disposer and remove the excess material. Does the rotating shredder spin freely? If not, place the de-jamming wrench down onto the rotating shredder bars and rotate back and forth until the jam is free. Then remove the jammed item. Press the disposer overload reset button. If equipped, turn on the disconnect switch and wait 30 seconds. Turn the disposer on and begin feeding food waste into the disposer. To not use a hammer and pry bar as this may damage the rotating shredder. In review, to ensure optimal operation of your InSinkerator food waste disposer, we recommend that you start the unit prior to loading it, avoid batch feeding, gradually feed food waste and allow the unit to run 30-60 seconds after the last load of food waste has been processed.
