How to replace your InSinkErator disposer. Hi, I'm Don from InSinkErator. Today I will be replacing a standard InSinkErator disposer with this Evolution Series model. These are the essential tools which you will need to replace an InSinkErator disposer with another InSinkErator disposer. Before working on your garbage disposer, always make sure to turn the circuit to the electric off. You want to make sure the power is off, this unit has a cord, so make sure it's unplugged. We'll start by taking off some of the plumbing, take the dishwasher discharge hose off. Loosen this clamp. Use a slip wrench to loosen up some of the fittings back here. If you need to, you can turn the disposer. On it's mounting assembly, there are two parts that meet together. The way to disassemble that is to use the wrench that's provided and also use a screw driver just to get better leverage. Rotate it counter clock wise and pop it loose. What that does is disconnect the pressure off the gasket, and then support it on the bottom, and then by hand, you can rotate it the rest of the way. So I removed the other disposer and i'm installing an Evolution Excel. Since we have a dishwasher on this and we have a dishwasher discharge line, we need to take this knock out which is a little plug and open that up. I take a screw driver, pound around the perimeter of the plug until it comes out, and here it just popped out. Now that will allow the dishwasher water to go in here and properly drain out. With this model, it has a different type of tail pipe than the standard model which goes inside this rubber cup hole. And it also comes with its own supplied spring clamp. You want to make sure it's kind of centered in the groove there and everything looks snug. With that being on, I think we're ready to put this in the sink. In the bottom of the sink you have a mounting assembly. On this mounting ring there are three tabs. These 3 tabs have to match up with these 3 ramps. Eventually these tabs will end up way over here, and they'll lock and hold the disposer up in place to seal it up against the rubber gasket. So we're going to bring the new disposer in. You need to lift this up against the mounting assembly, and you can see that the mounting tab here is above and i'm just going with my fingers to make sure all 3 are above. Once all 3 tabs are partly engaged it should hang by itself. For locking this mounting ring use the supplied wrench head and I assist it with the screw driver, go as far as you can. In the end I like to use the slip-joint pliers and just lock it in place. So then it's just a reversal of what we did to take this out. Start by putting the nut and washer on the discharge pipe, and we can rotate the disposer around so everything lines up. Put the dishwasher discharge pipe on, put the clamp in place, just snug everything up. One of the last steps is to plug the disposer back in, after tightening up the plumbing down below just turn the water on and then go down to check for leaks. I like to use the mirror, just look for any drips that might happen. Everything looks good on this one.
