Having problems with your Vacuums ?


Answers :

Taking apart a garbage disposal is a fairly simple process that you can complete in less than a half hour. Occasionally you will find that your garbage disposal has worn out or stopped working and needs to be replaced. The disposal is attached to the sink with just a few parts and you can disassemble it yourself and save the time and expense it would take to have a repairman come out and do the work for you. (Difficulty: Moderately Easy)

1. Unplug the electrical cord of the garbage disposal from the electrical outlet before attempting to take the unit apart.
2. Flip the breaker switch off at the breaker box that leads to the garbage disposal to verify there is no electricity running to the device.
3. Take the water pipe off the garbage disposal behind the unit by using a pipe wrench to loosen the nut around the pipe and slide the pipe section away from the disposal.
4. Twist the garbage disposal counter-clockwise by hand to loosen the mounting ring at the top.
5. Twist the two electrical wiring connectors to detach the wires and use a screwdriver to unfasten the ground wire from the bottom of the disposal.
6. Pry up on the mounting ring in the sink gently with a screwdriver until the disposal comes completely loose and remove the disposal from underneath the sink.
7. Remove any gaskets or back-up rings remaining around the access hole in the sink.

Hope helps.

I was in the middle of using my vacuum when it quite on me. I tried multiple things including letting it cool off for a while as I was using it to vacuum my car outside and it was pretty hot. I also dismantled it according to the directions and looked for blockages and didn't find any and lastly I cleaned out the brush and put it back on. I am out of solutions. The vacuum is not that old; we have only had it for a few months. Any assistance would be appreciated. Thank You, Karen
