it is leaking water from the bottom when I turn on he water it drains freely through the bottom
I have checked the drain and it is open

Hi,Welcome to Just Answer, My name isXXXXX will be helping you with your appliance issue today.


This is leaking at the very bottom of the disposer? It's not going on around the sink and running down correct?

that is correct I turn the water on and it immediately runs through the bottom of the appliance
This is not good, the seal inside the disposer is bad, I can't get your model number to come up can you check it again, 110, 106, or some other three digit number before the model number?
