Please proceed through the following procedure to determine if you have a unit requiring a corrective action:

     1. If your disposer is activated with an air switch, your unit may need corrective action . If your disposer is operated by a wall switch, your unit is not part of the corrective action and no work needs to be done. See pictures below for examples.


If your disposer is activated by an air switch, please proceed to Step 2.



If your disposer is operated by a wall switch, your unit is not part of the corrective action, no further action is required.

     2. Look at your disposer and search for a tube coming from a sinktop switch into the side of the unit.  See the picture below for an example.  If you cannot find a tube connecting from a sinktop switch to the disposer or if the tube enters the bottom of the unit instead of the side of the unit, your unit is not part of the corrective action and no work needs to be done.


If the Tube enters on the side, please proceed to Step 3.


If the Tube enters on the bottom, your unit is not part of the corrective action, no further action is required.

     3. If your unit has a tube between your sink top switch and the side (not the bottom) of the unit, verify if there is a yellow tag at the end of the cord.  If a yellow tag is present, your unit is not part of the corrective action and no work needs to be done.

If your cord does not have a Yellow tag on the end, please proceed to Step 4.

 

If your cord has a Yellow tag on the end, no further action is required.

 

     4. If your unit has a tube between your sink top switch and the side of the unit and does not have a yellow tag at the end of the cord, your unit is part of the corrective action. Please enter your product information below to register to receive your service kit.
