    Daniel Howell 6 месяцев назад They need to update this video. Instead of a stack of phone books, you'll need to use the five old cell phone boxes that you keep in your junk drawer for some unknown reason.
  • Sam Patrick
    Sam Patrick 3 года назад Thank you so much. My husband and I replaced our garbage disposal in 15 minutes with NO previous plumbing experience after watching just your video!! I did purchase the exact same one so I could leave the sink assembly in place. Thanks again!!!

    Veronica Chambers 4 года назад Disposal replaced in an hour and a half. The toughest part was removing and replacing the ring. Used my leatherman toolkit to help get the old one off the flange assembly. This was by far the best video for replacing a disposer. As for connecting the dishwasher drain, simply fit the hose into the opening and tighten the screw ring that is already on the dishwasher hose. You can also refer to the directions that came with your unit. Thanks Home Depot, you rock.

    d9baller 2 года назад Disposal was a GE trademark . So kind of like saying all tissues are Kleenex . At least that's what I heard
  • Keith Ferguson
    Keith Ferguson 2 года назад If you go by correct grammar then "disposer" is correct. It means a person or thing that disposes of something. Disposal is the action of disposing of something not the person or thing that is doing the disposing. Both are used in the industry to mean the same thing.

  • Tommy Daly
    Tommy Daly 4 года назад This is one of the best vids because they kept it simple, but you may want to look at more detailed vids that include tips and things you may need to know. Like many units (the #1 seller, Insinkerator) don't have colored wires, both are black and the positive (hot wire) is ribbed, the other wire is smooth. Only the ground wire is green. Also, the unit is quite heavy so using something to hold it near the height you need helps. Still a valuable addition, thanks.
  • Okaythen001
    Okaythen001 9 месяцев назад my fwd-1-4a has been leaking, few days ago I put banana with stem with it, that might has caused it or maybe age. I think it's 5 to 8 years old. The leak seems to come from the red button (if that matters any) when it was still working fine once awhile the water would build up but it will go down as soon as I turn it on (not overflowing or jammed right ?) So can I fix this or I need a new one? Can I just replace the main bottom part or do I need to take out everything and install the flange, rings etc (top part from top of sink with putty etc) thanks for your help

  • The National Razor
    The National Razor 2 месяца назад Should have taken a few seconds to explain that the power cord must either be purchased separately ($10) or the old one can be used from the disposal being replaced.

    The Culinary Fanatic 5 лет назад (изменено) A plumber wanted $600 to install a new disposal. I watched this video, went to Home Depot and got a disposal for $99, and fixed it myself in a little over an hour. Thank you, Home Depot!!!

  • MrMPRandGumbo
    MrMPRandGumbo 5 лет назад Removing the old disposal and installing the new one is actually quite easy. The difficulty of this task comes with attaching the plumbing to the disposal. The existing plumbing under sink (in my house) is just a I had to do some pipe cutting and some minor plumbing. Finally got it installed and working; would have preferred to not have had to mess with plumbing though.

    Tony Tramontana 5 лет назад THANKS! I'm a self admitted none handy man. My family as well myself was shocked I was able to replace. If I can do it, I think just about anyone can. Great Video!

    Catherine 5 лет назад after you turn off the power (breaker box), good idea to turn off the hot and cold water under the sink.
